    Sometimes you just need 4000 volts!

    Oh yeah, it sure was!! Now you might think I am joking about using a 400 pound "pole pig" in connected in reverse to generate 100 Kilovolts from a 480 volt industrial AC supply, but that's what I did back in 2002 on another project!... Yes, that's the thing inside the large can you see on a...

    Sometimes you just need 4000 volts!

    I am doing an R&D project for a client that requires an adjustable center tapped 2000v AC source. Can't say too much about the project, but so far testing has shown promise! Brad

    That seems feasible. Running in reverse, the 16:1 step down should offer about 12 volts / 50 amps from 120 AC. I would imagine that tripping a breaker would be an issue since these beasts are not current limited. When I tested this power supply, I dropped a piece of celery across the output...

    Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Yes!! Get 'er put on the road for a test run, even if you have to hold the bare wires in your teeth! Funny... first test of the Yard Mule, I was toggling the motor wires right off an old car battery. Spark! spark! spark! Brad

    Sometimes you just need 4000 volts!

    Part of my day today included cobbling together a crude fan cooled 4000 volt center tapped power supply. Rather than spending $3000, I went to Wallmart and purchased 2 new ovens for $75.00 a piece. There is a high probability that I might have voided the warranty! Fresh out of the box and...

    This is interesting tilting delta ?

    Something about a delta always looked more "right" to me. If I finally get to do a velo one day, it will be a delta for sure. Brad

    Modifying Warrior Trike Plans

    Front suspension on a tad is always the bulk of the engineering puzzle. Lots of small machined parts, plenty of crash testing! ... a fun project to take on though! Brad

    Delta Wolf Chain Length?

    Can you actually get those links for this type of chain? I have only seen them for the larger pitch. The chain tool is much better anyhow... 10 seconds and you are good to go! Brad
