Sans Electrocution

It works!

Did the wiring for my motor today.  It works!  Even has an on/off switch.  I’m sure I can make it look more professional, but it looks very DIY chic right now.

It’s a used Bodine in-line motor, I found it used on Ebay for about $80 with shipping.  While not the same, the specs are similar to those in a Diedrich IR-7.  The company’s spec page here.

The Motor

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

The motor for the roaster arrived yesterday, and I have managed to find the wiring diagram.  The project for this weekend is to wire it up and make it spin, without electrocuting myself.  For those curious, I found a used one of these puppies on Ebay for $80 with shipping, not bad.
