Re: Shopjimmy

I've used Shopjimmy and PTS, both places are reliable.. Shopjimmy isn't so good with shipping cost, they were kinda high a few times for piddley parts. I used to use PTS a lot for tv tuner repairs. and they rebuilt a complicated power supply for a huge plasma tv for me once. It would have been cheap...

Re: WAT IZZ IT?

CeaSaR >> are you speaking of a thing called a Violet Wand ? I used to use such a tool, but it was way different, the base was the same, but it used a metal probe instead. I used it to detect leaks on neon tubing that was brought in to me for repair ( I used to make NEON years ago. I kinda miss it. ...

Re: Yet another battery charger question...lol

The unit i showed you just controls the turning on/ off the primary of the transformer... but i could let it control another relay for higher input current. If i did get it, i could change the transformer on it from a 220v to a 120v. i think i did that with something else before. as for a solar conf...

Re: Yet another battery charger question...lol

This unit ( model 19740 Lestermatic II ) It has a control board in it.. It cuts the battery off once it's full.. But this would overcharge AGM / SLA Batteries. And yes i am trying to maximize the battery life. These batteries are on one of my solar projects. I only need it if there's more than 2 day...

Re: Ghosts

I never knew that was possible... I always did it the hard way..go all thru the menu..the sucky part was trying to get to where you needed to be to get to the Horizontal hold menu. Usually the horizontal was out of whack. You wanted to get that set 1st so the H.O.T. didn't short out from being so ou...
