    Simplex flipper

    I finished this today and decided I needed to get back to taking some better photos, it's not great but it's better than the cell phone pics I've been doing lately :)

    Final photos for Blade

    So it will be 10 knives, I gave up on trying to save the 11th yesterday. I still don't know what I'm calling the new prototype's, I'll have to make up my mind soon because I need to print info cards for them.

    VFD problem

    Thanks for the clarification :) Surprisingly I can solder but otherwise this job is way over my head, I'm going to buy another identical drive and send this one in for repair, then keep it for a spare. Thanks for the help everyone.

    VFD problem

    Hmmm, I was looking at the QBT or the STVN, but the GBT and the BLT look suspicious too.... :D I'm sorry man, I have no clue what an SCR, IGBT or DVM are.

    VFD problem

    I don't know if it's the motor, because it oscillated back and forth (like it can't make up its mind to go forward or reverse) I assumed it was the VFD, it is a KB and I've found a replacement but I haven't pulled the trigger on it yet (wouldn't ship until tomorrow anyway). I was talking to Jim...

    I have a KMG with the 2HP variable speed, it was running fine the 1st half of the day but a little while ago when I turned it on it sounded and felt wrong, it kind of vibrated. I shut it off and looked ofr the source of the vibration, couldn't find anything so I turned it back on and it just...

    Cool, I haven't seen it yet but I realized today that I didn't even let you know it was on the way, and I sent it to the shop instead of your home so I just thought I'd check :)

    CPM 154 or Elmax?

    I haven't compared the two in side by side cutting but I think the Elmax should out perform the 154. Don't get me wrong, the CPM154 is an excellent steel, I used it for years, but things are changing now that steel companies are paying some attention to cutlery.
