Yep, HF then - that's good, less to go wrong and lower power consumption too. I've got a whole warehouse of reasonably new Switch Start's and another with all HF - the HF one is a good deal cheaper to run!

My main 80A, 30ma RCCB keeps tripping for no 'apparent' reason - the individual circuit's breakers don't!!
very annoying!
....but, has behaved since I bought its replacement!!!!

Well that's good news then

Know what you mean on the spares front - got some stuff that'd have been well past its sell by date, quite some time ago, if it were to have had one!!

Now I'm really not a fan of all the namby pamby modern regs designed to save people from their own lack of common sense, but...

a residual current circuit breaker, that detects earth leakage current (i.e. that damp/damaged metal cased machine) and trips before you enjoy the quick electric hairstyle bit does make sense.

Although if you remember to test said item with the back of your hand before getting a good grip on it you'll be allright (probably)!!!!


Agree that they do 'wear', as do MCCB's that are repeatedly tripped on over current, which supposedly will eventually fail in a spectacular fashion. I'm guessing due to wearing out the arc surpressing parts and turning into a giant sparkler.

LOL - know what you mean and they're fine when they work as per spec., but when they continually go off just by throwing a switch, they're a complete PITA!!

Cannot remember full details but a section of office / stores / compound / containers had a spell of randomly tripping the power at Toddington.
Over a period of time they managed to narrow it down to the office area although everyone was convinced it was cable damage in the compound area and had spent literally weeks on a wild goose chase.

The culprit was finally traced to a fridge in the kitchen area. Took literally weeks to corner the little bugger but they got it in the end.

LOL ! Elusive lil' suckers those rogue fridges!!

Mine just doesn't have any rhyme or reason - can be on/off/on/off for a couple of hours then fine for a week/month - wouldn't mind if it wasn't for it taking out all the clocks and 'puters - plus the router can take half an hour to get its head back together!

Been ok for about six weeks ATM!!
Next time is its last - the new one will get installed

Well by the time I got my head together today and felt more like me, there wasn't a lot left of the day, before hamster juice time after tea!

I did how ever manage to get the top back on to the VA-r, picked up on the hitch and positioned so's I could suss out the tilt ram feed pipe lengths, which I knew (in my heart) were going to need altering !!







The black marks are where the centre of the fittings need to be!!!!!



Also got the chance to crowd it round, full tilt each way (with a 7 ft bar) and measure up the ram rod return stops, that I still have to get made up, which shouldn't be too much bother!
I know what I'm going to do with 'em, just got to do it!

Otherwise all looks hunky dory on clearances, etc.. Reset the motor pipes to clear the gussets and checked everything for tightness, just in time for tea!!

As usual, there're lots more in the bucket http://s1275.photobucket.com/user/v8...b%20VA%20Rotor

Looks like your really getting there Gra

Following your thread makes me wish I'd been more proactive with the camera with some of the suff I've put together in the past. Will try harder with future projects

Keep up the good work

Glad your feeling better

James
