Off and On.
First day at school was not nice, with poor coal and no low speeds...pop
corn from the fire all over the place. Second day my instructor brought
coke, and there was a world of difference then.
Since, I have been unable to locate any rheostats for the Champion Blower.
. . . . .This is on the front plate.
No. 3291H106 8452 8 ohms
Champion Regulator 50 & 51
Champion Blower Forge Co.
. . .I figure with 8 ohms on 112VAC this should be about 14 Amps, which
would mean almost two HP (6.8 Amps/HP I believe, maybe it is 6800 watts/HP).
I doubt this HP is the case as the motor is quite small...5" dia, and 5 "
Anyone have a link to where the motor controller can be purchased?
Are they repairable? Evidently all the windings on the slide are
contacting...maybe just dirt is shorting them out. This is a large rheostat,
almost 6" accross.
My instructor and I would be happy with any assistance...thanks.
PS...I tried Google, and as with all my searches there...nothing.
