  • I'm a bit rusty with my saw

    I haven't done much scrolling in a few years, but this November I fired up the old RBI and got back into working the wood. I made 200 little 3D reindeer and a few plaques. I'm a bit rusty with the saw, but it's all coming back to me as I sit at the saw. Here are a few of my little projects that I did:

    one of my plaques:

        and last but not least Grandma and I sitting enjoying an evening:

        I hope that you enjoyed the photos and that I didn't bore you to death. I wasn't sure where to post this, so I hope it's alright where it is.

                  Good work !

                  I'm pleased you posted your pictures in a thread because I'm the (lazy) sort who'd rather have them drawn to my attention than have to go trawling through the gallery to find 'em .

                        If that's rusty, then could send me some of that rust? Those projects were very good, thanks for sharing, and welcome to the forum.

                          Thanks everyone for boosting my confidence! My wife and all the members of my family, plus my Best Friend are always telling me that I am too critical of my work. Now I guess I can definitely believe them.

                                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...

                                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...
