Thread: Ghost in my shop!

  1. #1

    Ghost in my shop!

    My clearview DC system has a remote that uses a 110V receiver that controls 220v relay that turns on the DC. Which I really like!

    When I turn on my lathe (powermatic) -- at a certain range of RPMs my DC starts up.. On it's own -- push the off button and within a few seconds with lathe running the DC starts back up.. A real nuisance !!

    Ghost in the shop. (right frequency ). Ghost that is...
    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    When I use the remote to start my Oneida DC the ceiling fans and lights in the family room 30' away come on...but when I stop the DC with the remote, the fans and light keep running. Dang ghosts.

    Paul i have those ghosts too. In my shop i turn the lights on and the air cleaner comes on, its a Grilly with infrared remote. Seems the lights give off enough in the right sort of code to activate the air cleaner.
    cheers

    But is it not a good thing that the DC turns on regardless?

    Yes Andrew not a very good thing!

    I have never had any trouble using the remote ( on and off)

    Don't like the "Running" on it's own volition. Ghost of killed trees that my lathe has chewed up!

    That would give me the Willies... it's bad enough that critters use my shop as a winter haven without having to worry about the ghosts too.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
