  • Designers, Luthiers, and others: a suggestion

    I know we have a couple of Luthiers here and some talented designers too:

    I ran across this link for design of a guitar stand contest:

    if you scroll down to the design by Rob Weeks, then read the judges comments.

    Now scroll up to 2nd place winner Bill Grunbine.

    There must be a design that would link the two designs with a wonderful scroll saw design. The base would only need to be 1/2 inch stock. Replace the circles with Musical 1/4 notes and a Treble cleft (fancy "&".) How about a measure of music doing do-re-me... with 1/4 notes.

    As far as the neck goes, Vine and leafs fret work might go good. However, the simple austere look of the solid neck as designed by Bill Grunbine does have merit.

    Just thinking out loud.

    The guy who took first place deserves it in my opinion. It is sleek, simple, and elequent. Nice use of woods.

    I was reading the next contest and I think if I can get the cabinet I am working on completed I may give it a shot. Then again I have been trying to complete it for the entire winter and to no avail.

      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...

      Testing this blower motor
      by bradleyheathhays
      I have this blower motor that's out of a used pellet stove the previous owner says was going bad. I suspect it's because it was almost completely clogged at the intake, but I wanted to test it out electrically to make sure. The motor housing says 120v, so not know hardly anything about electricity...
