Re: Any electric motor gurus?

P5 - the more I think about it, the more your answer of supplying torque is valid.

By delaying the power to one set of windings will definitely apply torque to the armature (so it turns in the proper direction).

Re: Rifle Shooter Rest Help

Most/many bench shooters use 1) a front rest (sandbag will do fine) and 2) a rear bunny bag to hold the stock.

No need for silly things like lead sleds.

You tube must have videos.

Re: Any electric motor gurus?

I am no expert, but "the capacitor adds torque to start the motor under load" does not sound correct.

I thought the start cap delays the voltage going to one set of windings (ELI the ICE man) to ensure the armature turns in the right direction.

Re: Any electric motor gurus?

Lots of info online. But call your local elec supply house, see what they say.

They are only $5 or so, and I cant imagine the wrong one will cause serious problems. So maybe try a couple based on what the web says.

Do you also have a start cap and relay in there?

Re: Remembering Glockpacker

Eric was a good man. And he was so happy that he could excel, and compete in long range prone matches, even with his disabilities. He did a lot of travelling with a Port Malabar team, along the east coast.
