    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    I connected the three live wires of a 3 phase supply to A2, B2, and C2 and the motor ran fine. It was after a while that the motor tripped the lecky and wouldn't start again. The motor was returned...

    Mmmm. I had forgotten all about the lever that you had to pull down on the starter for the grinding/roller mill and then push up smartly when she had started. These kids of today don't know they're...

    I have just re-read through most of this topic and I have recently discovered that there are motors being produced that can be either single or 3 phase. It depends on how they are wired up as to what...

    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    I think that my main reason for just standing there is not that I am "frightened" it's because I need to make sure that the suds pipe is in the right position all the time and not, because the blade...

    3 phase : rotation of motor.

    Donkey's years ago if you wanted to change which direction a 3 phase electric motor ran you just swapped two of the live wires over (after switching everything off obviously !) Can anyone tell me if...

    Re: Plastic tubing substitute for vee belts

    Thanks Peter. And you're right. The 3rd one on your list is what I'm after. Thank you. Now a little story. Sometime in the late 60s-early 70s our postman had a fan belt let go and he came and asked...

    Thank you for that but the saw only gets occasional use nowadays and 60 years ago I always had a length of the tubular stuff and it got me out of trouble more than once. Very useful if you've got...

    Many years ago I bought some round hollow plastic tubing designed to be used as a vee belt. You cut it to length and joined it with a steel internal joiner which you pushed into each end of the tube....

    Re: Hay baling - old style

    It's not so much "mighty men", there is a knack in pitching a bale. You need the proper fork for a start. Not what we call a pitchfork, that was for sheaves. A bale fork has two tines but they are...
