    Hi all,

    I have been wondering if there is a high and a low season for scroll saw. When do scrollers work more and when less? In my case there is no real difference along the year since I only scroll my designs to illustrate my web and that happens more or less every two or three months in average.

    Well that depends on if you do the craft show circuit and when you do them. Usually these are in the fall so most of the scrolling is done torwards the fall or I like to use the winter to stock up product again. I also like to work on new projects in the winter. Not much to do outside so this is a great time at least for me. Come spring and summer there are other things to do than scroll. That is why I do not think I could make this a serious business thing. I like to do other things.

      I think there are seasonal influences because of themes that occur at different times of the year. For instance, in October I ususally find myself up to my eyeballs in Christmas projects.

      Weather will also play a part if you don't have a well lit, warm workshop to use in the winter - brrrrr!

        Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
        That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

        If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

        The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

        You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
