Electric Motor Question
A few weeks ago I posted about a Porter Cable dry grinder giving problems. Reports I have seen say $45 - $55 to replace the electronics. That is approximately 1/2 of the original cost; it is not a practical solution as far as I am concerned.
The new PC variable speed dry grinder ran long enough for Glenn and me to put on new wheels, balance and align them. Then it started blowing fuses. Unfortunately I had left it in the box until the warranty was no good.
What would happen if I just took the pig tail wires and hooked them directly to the motor through the switch and said, "To heck with the variable speed?"
I assume that the motor will run 3,000+ rpm (yes I know what ASSUME stands for; that is why I am asking for confirmation or any other ideas). I would prefer the 1700+ speed. However 3000+ is better than nothing.
Thanks and Enjoy,
If pics would help, I will photo any part you wish to see.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
