Lightbulb What's Eating Your Stator? Demo of Eddy Current

Theorizing that increased eddy current in the stator can lead to excess heat and stator failure. I'm blaming the Junction Box, with nothing more than circumstantial evidence, at the moment.

If Roadhopper was still here, I'd ask him to design a better JB for us.

Best part happens at 2:35.

Interesting theory. I don't think steel or aluminum experience eddies quite like copper does ... have you seen the 'drop a magnet down a copper tube' videos? Same principle. Will have to read up on it.

And what did happen to Roadhopper? Didn't see an exit post from him. I miss his projects and experiments.

1992 US-nonCA * tuxedo mod * r/r relocated

Wiring Diagram + annotations * still undergoing revisions, but still more useful than the generic one. Let me know if you find mistakes or think something additional should be added

Some say that Roadhopper left and went into the wilderness to design a better JB for us. They said he vowed never to return until he had succeeded.

Others said that he slowly went mad trying to come up with the perfect JB.

Me? I prefer to believe that he is still lurking around here somewhere in the shadows, just waiting until he is needed again.

Don't take my word for it. I'm just a foolish newbie.
When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.

Good thing there's no aluminum in a stator, and lots of copper surrounded by spinning magnets.

Roadhopper wanted to design a new R/R.

I've done the magnet through a copper pipe, good way to win a beer bet. Most people will get it wrong if they haven't seen it.
