Re: Dead 3/4 hp motor - starter capacitor?

The wiring was wonky - fixed it and it started right up so cap is fine as well. Now I've got to work on the coolant pump, sigh ... At least I can cut what I need with a spray bottle of coolant if I get desperate. :D

Re: Dead 3/4 hp motor - starter capacitor?

Thank you both. I found an article on how to test the capacitor so that's my next step. I think after that is checking that one wire to the cap does indeed have power.

Dead 3/4 hp motor - starter capacitor?

I've had a 13" Jet Horizontal band saw for years - bought second hand from a guy who definitely did stuff to the wiring. However it has worked for me for years until today when it is totally dead. The motor is a 4 pole, 3/4 hp. There is power to the box that has wires split off to the motor switch, ...

Re: Sort of free bronze, zinc, and brass scrap

Wow, a induction furnace, that's impressive. You can make some nice alloys. I have a lot more brass, zinc than I thought. It is in a 5 gal bucket, maybe 3 gallons worth. Guessing it is close to 40 pounds. I could fill up a large fixed rate and you'd get whatever fits if you want a sample large enoug...

Re: Pump problem on horizontal band saw

A BIG thank you to all - the pump (and saw) is back in action. Now I can get back to planning the cuts. Apart from the engineering and the manufacturing processes to make the rotor this turned out to be a very simple machine. There was nothing fancy. The water goes in the center hole, the plastic va...

Re: Pump problem on horizontal band saw

I took the bottom of the pump off to see if the rotor turned (it did) and anything was clogged. The picture shows it upside down with the cover removed. You probably know how it works - the coolant enters through a hole in the center of the cover (Right arrow) and the rotors push it up through the t...
