Re: Power Supply

You are not looking for a power supply, you are almost looking for a miracle. If you must run this thing on 110 volts, the simplest thing to do is buy a tig welder and a 100 amp 110 to 220 control transformer and be done with it. Make sure your incoming service can handle that currant. An engine pow...

Re: how to get 9 volts 300ma

i bet a small nine volt battery would do unless you intend to use it in a constant duty mode. Than it would be easier to use. I doubt the probe uses 300 ma.

Re: OPNIONS WANTED sounds too good to be true

Re: 24VAC rectified to ?

60 hz. transformers from my experience with them go at around 12 watts per pound for a good reliable one with a 100 percent duty cycle. A watt per ounce would probabally work for general use, but oem specs must always be considered.

Re: electronic scarecrow

My humble apologies to any one that feels insulted or otherwise disturbed by anything i say. Sometimes people seem to overlook simple solutions to problems that can be solved without creating garbage such as spent batteries and other things. I try to point them out. We all have egos here and it has ...

Re: OPNIONS WANTED sounds too good to be true

I am not defending or refuting this power generator this string is about, but onr thing I tried to point out is Nikola Tesla (a showman and prehaps a shamen,he was) was quite unlike the POWER COMPANIES not motivated by profit. I find it hard to believe some silly dupe in a power company would even s...
