So I did a post a while back regarding the neat contactor/relay setup at the range (which is now 40 years old and is having issues with wear).
I was contacted via email a day or so later by a person in my area (NW Indiana) who reads this blog, and who offered to help. He’s more current than I am (not that that is hard, I haven’t done any relay logic in decades) and despite some schedule issues, we were able to meet up on Friday and he looked over the setup. He helped me to understand what I was missing (I could not figure out what the 4th contactor did…He figured it out…it does NOTHING, (at least not anymore) and made the logic clearer for me….and offered to help me clean up the setup (once very clean, but modified at least once over the past 40 years). and find parts to make it possibly even more reliable. A pretty capable dude.
All volunteer. An hour and a half of his time…Not a member of the range. Just a reader of MoTR. Just ’cause he thought he could help and was somewhat close…
There are some awesome people on the internet, and some of ’em read this blog.
Thanks, again, Joe.
