  • Reduce or Enlarge Your Patterns

    If you need to figure out the percentage for changing the size of your patterns. Here is a site online that has a good calculator.

      If you don't have a computer available.. make a 3x5 note card with this formula..
      ND= New Dimension; OD= Old Dimension (original)

      (OD / ND) x 100 = % to plug into copier

      eg: if you have a 12" tall original and want it to fit a 6" board, the numbers would calculate out as:
      (12 / 6 ) x 100 = 50%

      Hope that helps

        So Welcome. I hope you enjoy your visits.

        Would be so kind as to go over to the Welcome Members area and post a few words about your self? You know, type of saw, if you like fret work, portrait work, intarsia, so forth. Take a photo of some of your work and post tgem on the 'scoller gallery' section. If you are shy about posting your work, say so, we do understand.

          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...
