    Just one of her many jobs. Wouldn't surprise me if she is still involved as a consultant with Certsure or one of it's subsidiary companies although I assume these committees have to have a register of interests

    EC has a meaningless body?? not last night she hadn't

    thanks pheonix, this is the sort of information that i am looking for. i wanted to know exactly what is going on with tester and this answered some question. where can i find more like this? all the best simon
  6. In that case they are "run" capacitors, not just for starting. They effectively create a second phase and contribute to the power. I don't think there is much you can do about the start acceleration. Someone else may know a way. ??
  7. I have the motor working fine in reverse rotation by swapping the two wires under the copper bar. It doesn't have a centrifugal switch as when I took it apart to fit the bearings it was pretty much empty inside apart from the magnet/windings.

    I often wondered why they disappeared so quickly . I quite liked Simon Dee. He was sort of the Noel Edmonds of his day but likeable. Noel Edmonds just being the creepy uncle at family gatherings
  9. Try reporting them as "intermittent smell,of what seems like burning but you cannot be certain and there are vulnerable people in the property" dont say "it is burning OR it smells of burning" as they will turn up, no smell, no burning and go home
  10. It looks to me that the two capacitors are connected in parallel. It also looks like they are in circuit all the time which fits with the other opinion you have been given. A start capacitor would be wired via a centrifugal switch to take it out of circuit as the motor speeds up. Was there one when you stripped it to do the bearings?
  11. The problem is that these cables would have been installed by the old regional electricity board, depending on which of the three areas UKPN coveres you are in, this would have either been The Eastern Electrity board, The South Eastern Electricty board, or the London Electricity board. In the 1990s, these were first privitised (they became companies and not boards) then in the late 90s the whole thing was split up, you'd no longer pay your bill to the REC, but the cables in the ground and the cutout were looked after by the DNO, you'd select an energy company, and they'd appoint a metering operator to look after the meter (Yes, its as big a courgetteup as the bloody trains.....) Anyway, a strange situation came about with regards to flats and other similar properties, where a single cable is brought in, some distribution was installed by the board and then a cable to an individual head in the flat, to which the meter is then attached. The DNOs decided that they didn't want the resonsibility of these, so they end their responsibility at the main cable head for the building, the metering companies only do their meter from the local head in the flat, leaving the bit in between in a no-mans-land. Now the official line is that this is the responsibility of the BNO (building network operator). So who is the BNO for you? well mosty likely their isn't one, the supply industry has just managed to palm off responsibility for fixing the problem onto an enitity that doesn't exist. Dispite the fault that it was themselves in a previous incarnation who would have installed those cables 60 or 70 years ago. Its also further complicated (as Deke says) that those cables are on the unmetered side, so they don't want anyone outside of the supply industry working on it, yes, the same bunch of companies who refuse to accept responsibility for it themselves. Yes its a complete mess. None of this really helps you get any further, I just thought a bit of history would be interesting!

    Well that’s a typical setup for standards these days more fire chiefs than people who actually know, oh and I see EC is at the heart of it, another meaningless body that will be wrong from the get go, at least she is consistent. oh and as for Kerch, I really thought the therapy had helped you too move on clearly not!!!

    I actually went to Deeley Plaza and the book depository is now a museum with the 6 floor widow area exactly as it was on the day. In the road are three red crosses which depict the bullets point of impact. There is also one marked by the underpass. The grassy knoll and the picket fence still remain and the atmosphere is incredibly surreal. Now what I would say is that from the 6floor window the view down to the underpass is somewhat restricted by the trees, whether these were there at the time I don’t remember, it’s been a while since I read up on this. away from the plaza about two blocks down is another museum which is said to be the real museum and includes the gun that LHO used. if you are interested in this then it’s well worth a visit as nothing has been changed since it happened.

    Oh Talking about conspiracy theories ........

    Any conspiracy wasn't generally known of in the UK until the one time James Bond actor , George Lazenby appeared on the Simon Dee Show . For those of a younger vintage this was a popular talk show in the 1960s . Lazenby was , I believe , the first to talk about a conspiracy theory over here , it went out live and in short order , Lazenby was dropped as Bond and Simon Dee went from one of the most popular presenters of the day to driving a London bus ,, never worked on TV again .

    And so it begins again .
  16. Usually you reverse either the start winding or the run winding but not both . Not sure about that motor though . Could you not just turn the motor around 180 deg. ? :C

    There was a documentary on tv a very long time about this

    Thats a new theory Murdo , not heard that before.

    Oh Talking about conspiracy theories ........

    That’s because the CIA in the car in front let off 1 or 2 stray shots .... one of which hit Kennedy
  21. The 4 arrows point to wires that go into the motor.
  22. Theres a video on Youtube of an interview with a surgeon who attended President Kennedy after the assassination . He casually mentions the FRONTAL bullet entry ....which as I remember we were told didn't happen . All shots were from behind from the famous Book repository . Video below he mentions the front entry bullet wound at about 27.40 .
  23. How do I find out which capacitor is the starting one? On another forum someone reckoned it is a permanent split capacitor so does that mean it won't have a start capacitor? Do these images work?

    CLANCY'S ALIVE!!!!!!
  25. I can't access those photos for some reason. However, can you read the value of the start capacitor? If so try a smaller one, perhaps 50%, (less micro-farad, same voltage or higher). They are quite inexpensive and you won't do any harm as long as you don't leave it powered up whilst stalled, (i.e. if it doesn't start). Your application is free of starting load so it should start easily.

    So thats where she went . She moved on to avoid a stalker but he'll read this any minute now !!

    It sounds like you have got it, it simply conducts a pfc test between the live and earth probes, if the earth is on earth, this give you PEFC, if its on neutral it gives PSCC. The tester also has a neutral lead for the return for the electronics in the tester, now ideally this will always be on neutral, so on PSCC you have N&E stacked together, on PEFC not. If you do what Noz does and always live them stacked together when doing earth loops, you should be aware that you are powering the tester itself from earth, this can be a risky decision, the tester will do its best to prevent a dangerous condition from the test current down the earth probe if the cirucit is open earth (its limited duration, and it'll monitor voltages while testing and not let you if things look wrong. Putting the neutral on the earth is just like connecting any other load between live and earth, it'll work, but is potentially dangerous if the earth is open. Im not saying its something you need to avoid completely, but you should be aware of the risk if the earth turns out to be open
