I didn't mean that either. Poor choice of words on my part. I just meant that if he hadn't been helping me he could have been working on his engine.

I'm really over book with work and "Johnny" is my boss
"CASH" is his family name

Nice to hear that your circuit is workingThm:
I'm currently assembling a circuit on a bread board to give a physical
view of the circuit and will be posting it on the new ignition forum
It was fun chatting with you ;)

Luc--The only way I get a finish like that is with lots of emery cloth.--Don't tell anybody!!! I'm to busy doing "real" work to play with little engines right now, but you are doing great!!!---Brian

Luc--Did you get your lathe fixed? My BusyBee 2227L lathe has given me great service, but it must be smaller than yours, as its only 110 volt. About 2 weeks after I bought it 5 years ago the starter switch burned out, but they sent me a new one when I called and that's the only trouble I've had, electrically.----Brian

Hi Brian
they receive my new motor yesterday, they called me to go and pick it up
and I ask them to check it before cause I was going to have a "fit":mad:
they called me back 1 hr later saying " don't worry Luc we wired it checked
it and everything is fine";D
Drove down there and because of so many problem with these motors, I told the technician show me that its fine be fore I leave.
:mad::mad::mad: dam it didn't reverse th_wtf1th_wtf1 is going on here.
took his multimeter and start doing some testing, needless to say I was steaming.:fan: after a few minutes of testing we realize that the wire ID
were not on the proper wire...... the motor was running on the starter cap and circuit all the time. When I got home check my old one and it's wired the same. The wiring diagram plate is wrong.
I should be installing it today after storing my 3 motorcycle for winter
and hope its the end of this story.:wall: I told the store manager if I have one more issue with this lathe I'm just going to bring it back and get another one

cheers

Luc

Luc--When I first started to build model engines (and things) I tried to pick two bolt sizes that matched "over the counter" cold rolled steel shaft. I used #10-24 fasteners because that is basically a 3/16" shaft with a coarse thread on it, and #5-40 which is a 1/8" shaft with threads on it. I buy my #5 fasteners at Brafasco or Fastenall, and you are correct, a #5 fastener is not that common. However, they are almost a perfect size for much of what I build. A #5-40 bolt has a maximum diameter of 0.125", the head is 0.205" diameter x 0.125" high, and the counterbore should be 0.25" diameter x 0.125" deep.

Give me the metric system any day, although you can get standard and fine pitch in a few sizes. :)

Ive found 5-40 to be a tough size to source in Canukistan & also more limited lengths. 5-40 is not a common hobby shop size for typical RC, its 4-40 & 6-32 & M2.5, M3, M4 etc. are abundant in RC cars & helis etc. There are mail order type places or maybe Spanauer ?sp? out your way (have not used them myself).

KBC if you want to buy a box of 100 (good stuff USA only, no clones)

Travers has them (including offshore), but I think minimum $ order?

You decide if its worth it, but here are typical tap drill sizes @75% thread:
4-40 #42 0.0935"
5-40 #37 0.1040"
6-32 #33 0.1130"
