    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!!!

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

    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 .
  6. 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
  11. The 4 arrows point to wires that go into the motor.
  12. 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 .
  13. 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?

  15. 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
  18. I can't find out anything about this motor. I can't make out the kw power output on the label so emailed the company and they can't tell me because it's so old. I also can't find the same motor anywhere on the internet to find out more. I'm pretty sure it is 1.5kw.
  19. have you checked the original spec for capacitor rating and voltage?

    There's absolutely no point in another scheme which doesn't have the "teeth" to follow up on bad practice AND expel members take a look at this: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/building-regulations-advisory-committee/about/membership

    Here's a thought....wouldn't it be ironic if this new scheme boss was EC , who disappeared VERY quickly from Certsure with NO explanation or notice period and has not been seen or heard of since

    This begs a question, who in Westminster is organising this? the DCLG? we need names to contact ........

    Why are the government asking the incumbent not fit for purpose money hungry CPS companies to create another half baked scheme when what we really need in the industry is a totally independent body to drive up and maintain standards of qualification and workmanship something which has been totally lacking since Part P was introduced
  24. If I understand your requirement wouldn't buying a product off the shelf like this do the job? https://www.heatingcontrolsonline.co.uk/optimium-wifi-immersion-heater-timer.html
  25. I'm not sure that leaving a "home made" device in an empty property may not be sensible if something went wrong ................

    its just about the money for the schemes ...............
