120v Motorbike???

Hey guys... so i managed to snag a 120v motor from a ryobi leaf blower... how would i need to go about making a battery pack for it? and how would i mount it??? i was thinking of relaying batteries with wire and tape.... but i DONT want it to be a bomb on wheels!!! XD and for the mount i was thinking of welding some bolts into the motor and then onto the bike near the sprocket.... even then.. how am i supposed to attach it to the axle to make the wheel spin?? weld in a rod or something i suppose?? i also made sure to grab the switch cause i dont feel like making one and it has three settings... off, 1(slow), 2(fast).

LEDs off house current?

I have recently conceived a desire to pimp out small household appliances, like say a hand mixer. I want to add LED running lights around the joint where the top part of the case and the bottom part fit together. Of course, I also want to still be able to use the mixer for its intended purpose, so I can't just slap a wall wart on the cord. Does anyone have any hints on a safe way to divert/convert about 12v of DC power from the 120v AC power cord? Ideally, I'd like a compact solution, one that will fit inside the case of the appliance.

 I run a car wash and I need a way to quickly tell if equipment located in hard to get to places is on and working or not. What would be great would be a remote bank of lights that came on when a device was drawing current. What would be perfect is if I didn't have to wire it into everything - for instance inductive sensors (like the cheap ones you can buy at HD that beep and flash when current or voltage is present) that can be placed on the outside of a wire run and report back to the bank of lights whether or not there is current flowing.

Instructables prize power question

Hi! So I have this burning question. If I were ever to win a big prize in Instructables contest that included an power appliance, what should I do if it only works in US? Because here in Europe, we have 230V 50Hz power and you guys over there have 120V 60Hz power. Some time ago, my girlfriend won  a vacuum sealer and the thing is just sitting in its box because we can not use it. The only solution would be a separate converter which costs a lot. And for the bigger stuff it would cost even more! My Worx Semi-Automatic screwdriver works just fine over here (110-230V) My suggestion for the Instructables personnel is that with growing numbers of creators overseas, the prize power problem should somehow be handled (if it is even possible) Cheers, Andreas (happy instructables member :)

Voltage regulator to get from 70vac back to 120vac?

Hi all, I am using (and for strange reasons am required to use) track light outlet adapters to power some LED light strips. The LEDs use an AC adapter that requires a minimum 100vac to run properly. The problem is that the track lights are dimmed substantially, so the voltage coming from the tracks is only 70vac. Any idea what I can use to bump the voltage back up to the 100+ voltage range? Tripp Lite has a some regulators, but they don't go down to 70vac. APC makes one that goes down to 80vac, but that's the lowest I've found. Is there an off-the-shelf regulator that goes down to 70 volts? I found this contraption that looks promising and maybe a little sketchy (alibaba style). Any other recommendations? I guess the other question is what is the risk in running the LED strip lights if their AC adapters are getting 30v lower than they recommend? The lights appear to function fine, but will the adapter overheat? Burn out quickly? Cause a fire? If it burns out, say, once a year, I'll probably leave it, but I have no idea what the consequences are. Thanks in advance! 0    ..    o uuuuuu nnnnnn

12v to 120v sine inverter boosting

I have a 20 year old van. The a/c leaked and it is much cheaper to buy a 120v window unit ($140 with a 3-year walk-in exchange warranty) than to pay a shop to rebuilt the vehicle a/c. I chose a 5k BTU window unit that uses 4.1 amps running, and have a 1k watt sine wave inverter. Alone, the inverter will not start the a/c unit, but will power the fan. I confirmed a trick to start motors with an inverter. I connected an 8" bench grinder to the inverter and started it. It took a few restarts to get it up to speed. Then I started the a/c and it ran without problems. The bench grinder motor was able to supply the reactive power the a/c compressor needed to start. Both continued to run without straining the van's alternator. BUT, I don't want to travel with a running bench grinder going, that's not safe. Is there another way to supply the reactive boost that is safe to travel with? Once I get a simple stable way to run the a/c I'll work on a mount to vent the hot side. The van has sliding windows.

Single and Triple Phase? Answered

Ok, so I thought I knew how the power phases worked and then I got myself confused.  Our house has three phases and it offers power at 120v, 240v, and 480v (or at least can I think).  All three wires on the power poles go to transformers and then to the house and so on.  I have seen houses that just use one which I think I understand unless they try to get a dryer then what do they do.  I am going to ask a little more than phases here to just to make sure I get this.  In you wall outlet one is from a line on the power poles correct? and the other is ground which works because at the generator site the electricity is grounded on one side.  Now before I get ahead of myself, how can there be single and triple phases in a 120v outlet and what exactly are they.  Now, at a 240v outlet you have two hot wires coming from the power lines right, and then one ground.  Now I think all the lines on the poles come down to 120v, so how do you get 480v from three 120v lines.  3*120 does not equal 480v.  I am confused.  Also will having triple and single phase even effect how things work.  Like we have a 120v single phase compressor and it works just fine at our triple phase hose.  So it doesn't really make any sense at all.

Looking for Help! 120v ac to control variable speed 90v DC motor Answered

I'm at best a novice when it come to electrical and circuits so if what I've put together is a total disaster maybe you can inform me on a better solution. I've taken a treadmill that was given to me and salvaged the motor control board along with the 90v DC motor the control screen on the treadmill was smashed so i didn't bother to keep it. After a few days of googling and YouTubeing I ordered a scr motor controller but it was only single phase 220v... we here in Canada run a double phase 120v.. so to the best of my ability I wired up the single phase with a rectifier also purchased online. As I would flip the switch the motor would come on full tilt at what I'm assuming would have been 160v DC..I decided to scrap that idea. So after more googling and youtubing I found a page where someone had cut parts out of an old circuit board and just used the main circuit that took ac power in and DC power out.. so I figured I'd give that a try... and of course that didn't work either hens why I'm here writing this now. so I thought to my self, well what if I take the main components like the transfomer (tested the transformer to 120v on primary and on the secondary i was reading 18v av onmy multimeter) to step my power down the bridge rectifier to convert to DC along with a capacitor to clean up the ripple and a potentiometer to control the voltage. I wired these items up roughly then pluged it into the wall and when I flipped the switch nothing caught on fire so I figured I'm off to a good start, but as I started to turn the dial on my pot nothing happened.. until it was turned to the very top that was. then the motor started to turn probably at about 14rmp now I plan on using this set up for a wood lather. Am I going about this like a total buffoon? any help would be greatly appreciated

Is It OK For Me To Use This Transformer?? Answered

I have a few questions about my transformer that I scavenged from an audio amplifier. I assume this transformer was used to drive big speakers. This bad-boy weighs in at eight pounds and is pictured below. The coil has a resistance of 2.2 Ohms. Is that normal? The Impedance of the transformer @ 60Hz will be higher that 2.2 Ohms, right? The transformer was wired into the wall outlet (120V AC) with only a #102 (1000pf) ceramic capacitor and a 125V-6.3A fuse in series. that means that the power comes from the wall goes through a fuse, a transformer, a ceramic capacitor, and then back into the wall. The fuse was burnt-out so I am bypassing it for now. I fully intend to get one asap. The #102 ceramic capacitor either isn't working or limits the voltage too much so I am bypassing that as well. What is this capacitor used for? Some of the voltage levels that I am measuring from the outputs of the transformer are as follows: 5v, 30v, 40v, 60v, 80v, and possibly a 100v measurement. There are a lot of outputs on this transformer so it is hard to remember all of the voltage levels. Is there anyway to tell how many amperes I can safely draw from this transformer? (I have no datasheet and cannot find one) Thank you for taking the time to read my plight! I would really appreciate a reply! Thanks!

Help sought for DIY 12V for 120V Blender Boat Motor

Howdy, I’m hoping someone could give me a hand with jerry rigging a DIY trolling motor battery for a small boat (not a toy, but made out of many many water bottles, pvc, etc.) that will not get too much use. I need it to be very inexpensive and reasonably light. 10 D cells in a PVC pipe would be great. 20 would not be too bad. I am pretty much electrically illiterate. Here is what I have so far. I have an immersion blender … one of those things that Emeril Lagasse calls “boat motors”. I can attach a drive shaft and propeller to it. Because it is designed for being in liquids with more resistance than water (though with a smaller prop/blade), I think it will have sufficient torque to get some push. I will not know if it is enough until I give it a try, but I do know that weed wackers can be so converted and I don’t think they have much torque. The part I am stuck on is hooking it up to batteries. It is a 120V plug in device. I have a small 75 Watt inverter. I can plug the blender into the inverter and that into a car lighter and it runs well. I have hope! I understand that I should have 120 Watt inverter, but 75 is what I have. I have an accessory car lighter outlet to plug the inverter into. It has a red line with a fuse box mid way and a black line, identified as a ground line with a loop at the end. The directions say to screw that loop into the frame of a car and connect the red to the hot battery line. But as I am not using a car that is not of much help. I tried stringing 10 AA batteries together end to end, temporarily held snug with duct tape, and connect it to the inverter with the accessory lighter plug outlet, but I did not have any luck. The motor did not spin and the inverter power light did not come on. I used electrical tape to connect the red to the positive end of the string and tried taping the black to the negative and also to a knife to ground. I tried AA as I know those will get used one way or another. I did not want to invest in D’s until knew it would work. As I understand it, D’s will last longer. (I am not interested in re-charging). Since then, I came across a few bits of info on another site. One thread mentioned using a spring from, say a flash light, at the negative end and a bolt at the other. Another said that PVC was great for grounding. Some useful bits of info are that in addition to the 120V, the motor runs at 1.0 Amps. I do not know if the 60 hertz is relevant. Does any one have any ideas about how to do something this? Do I just need to replace the fuse and try again with D’s? How do I connect the lines? Wrap the red around a bolt through a capped pvc tube and tape the ground to the side of the tube, with a spring in the other capped end touching the negative end? Do I need two 10 series in parallel? I can stack batteries end to end, but how do I connect parallels, especially without soldering? I do not want to use a 12 volt car or marine battery. This motor is not going to get enough use to justify the cost of such a battery and charger and I do not what to deal with the weight. If I can get 10-15 minutes of power from a stack of D-cells (hopefully more time), I would call that a success as this is a learning experience as much as anything. An hour would be much better. Thanks in advance for any help.
