Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

I recently re-took my 5 year gas exams. The instructor sad The VW full electric Transporter only has a 50 mile range in winter.🥶 and I guess if you use the battery power for heating less. Best dress up warm when you go back to the van to the next job. But because of encouragements to corporations if...

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

Once you have to voltage amplify may aswell forget the behringer and build 3 class B push pull valve amps with a choke load on the output delivering direct to the three phases of the motor at 400v per phase. Whichever way you look at it chokes / autoformers are involved. Might be better to buy a rot...

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

So I have to step up 56 to 400. Simplest route is a three phase 400v autoformer if there is such a thing. Its looking out of my price range.

And three step up autoformers to match the motor voltage should do the job.
Ref step up transformers any idea what outlet voltage of behringer for audio might go to?

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

Not bad price and probably perfect power wise better than inverter.

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

I think making a three phase turntable has more chance of success than fixing my machine tools problems. My uncle has bigger better more automated machine tools. But they wont come to me. He has step children who will inherit, and you will see them on the Yorkshire Auction House TV program. Oh yes h...

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

I beg you’re pardon my laithe is only an L5. At the moment though it needs a better motor. The problem is that most motors available run twice the speed an old laithe like this was designed for. I guess if I google the issue I’ll find my answer. I suppose I could always half the speed with a differe...

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

Not trying to be clever but I have a Harrison vertical Milling Machine that is three phase which Im tricking with a capacitor to start a false phase, and boosed the voltage with a giant transformer wound with 3mm diameter winding wire but though it works its never as good a true three phaseI I could...

Re: 60Hz oscillator for turntables (also produces three phase)

Thank you Morgan. Im not sure I’ll build it for a while though. The uTracer 6 kit has arrived and Im to say the least overwhelm’d by the sight of that so far. Slowly slowly catchy monkey. I was going to build the ETF 6 eL36 but sod it I have a great sounding EL38 amplifier of my own design. Evry tim...

Re: Dying Rectifier?

A pair of tv damper diodes is an option remember though the b pluss out (cathode)is the base pin not the top cap (anode). The heater to cathode can take a lot of voltage difference usually. For sound in centre tapped full wave valve rectifier set up potato mashers are great if they are still cheap e...
