  • USPS Stamp Puzzle making challenge

    Hi all:

    Just for a puzzle making challenge, I found this link for a set of stamps the US Postal Service is going to publish in September 2006

    Florida Wetlands This could be a sheet of individual stamps that make up the full picture. Could be great fun cutting this one out.

    I printed that one out just on plain paper and it comes out beautifully in 4" x 6" size.
    I'll bet it's just a matter of time before Carter prints it out on high quality photo paper and make a freehand puzzle with cutting around and putting tabs on every bird and animal in it.
    If it can be done , Carter is the guy that can do it.
    He might even freak us out and do the same thing on a regular postage stamp size of it .

    The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us

    Delta P-20 Scroll Saw, 14" x 43" Craftex Wood Lathe and Jet 10" Mini Lathe .

      Hey, Phil....

      I've seen those montage stamp sets before and there have been many themes. I've never tackled them because there usually is too much of one color in the background (in this case, green) and the individual stamps don't have sufficient images to turn on my interest. I guess I'm just getting complacent in my old age.

      Here is a four-cent stamp. Now I can say that I made a Chippendale Chair with a scroll saw.

        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...
