Sticky Wicket

I mounted the KA5 beside the KA1 I was using for the NO contacts.  No joy.  Then I had a bright idea!  Don't rely on the cam for both, stack them!  Wohooo!!!  And..... I failed again....   The KA5 was not the panacea I figured it was.  Folly. I wired it so I can manually turn off the VFD.  Or maybe I should just put another 30mm hole in it for an off switch.  Grrrrrr......

Dug into the catalog, and there it is, big as Dallas.  It looks like the K85 is gonna be the fix.  Push on, Push off.  Ugh....  I don't know that I want to play that game anymore....

Side note, the 15 ohm braking resistor made it here post haste!  It looks good, measures at 15 ohms and says it's rated at the nominal 1000 Watts disapation.    Here's hoping that the 20 cents on the dollar I paid for it will prove a good investment.

And I lost my ever loving mind again....

I've been looking for parts for that Atlas drill press.... Hey whats that????


 


I guess we'll look at it when I get it...  I'll be eating peanut butter and crackers for the rest of July....  😕
