    one of the signs for my brother's new garage

    a few weeks back, he was telling us about the new house that they bought, and of the much larger garage he is planning on building. one thing that he said about it inspired this sign.

    I saw some designs recently.

    The surface of the material was all black.

    The engravings exposed the light color under the black.

    It looked awesome.

    I bet your design would look equally awesome. You could create that image and color in Vectric.

    Did you check the fuse on the speed controller?

    The fuse has a plastic cover over it making it look like a capacitor. It's pretty much in the middle of the board. Pull off the cover and there's a fuse in a clip. I don't recall the value without going to my shop to check. My speed controller suddenly stopped a couple of months ago for no apparent reason and it turned out to be the fuse.

    I'll check that out too. I have to go over there in the morning. A fuse will be cheaper than buying the whole thing. Thanks Bill!

    Yep Bill, that was the problem. Pulled out the fuse, and sure enough, the little wire was broken. Now I'll give them a call to see what size it is.

    Hey, Dan. Did you resolve your problem? I finally remembered to check my fuse. It's a 5A.
