Yeah but it was a 3 litre capri battery , not a 1300 one
|Thread: This weeks offer at Lidl|
well it's still "new" but i did look anyway and they're fine . It's the i.c. boards i'm sure ..
I checked the cable and fuse , they were ok . Spinning the motor by hand generated up to 35 volts on my cheap digi meter , so i assumed the motor was ok too .Which left the on /off switch.
I wasn't going to test it with mains electric , so i flicked the tester to ohms and hooked it up to input and output.. The neutral side didn't register anything upon pulling the trigger...but the live did.. So a switch fault ?? I removed it from the housing
Would i buy another ? Absolutely ! I have three others and they're great .. but i won't be running them on a genny. I know i could take it back and they'd refund me, there's 2 years warranty on them but I'll keep this one for spares for the others should I burn one out..

Well chopping the wires to the variable speed and joining them up, resulted in a still non functioning grinder !! Cable has continuity..fuse is good .. Got to go out now , i'll test the switch and windings later !
Umm ...I've read that the electronics in mig welders dislike being run from a generator , or rather the generator needs to be a much larger kw for it to work ? Well , today i used my newish Lidls variable speed 1200w angle grinder with my Honda EX500 genny...( 500w ) It ran it ok to start with, I didn't overload it , as obviously it wasn't making much power running on 500w ..and i was only using a 1mm disc to cut off a 8mm bolt so i wanted it to keep spinning fast . When i went to cut off a second bolt , the grinder wouldn't work.. Nor on mains .. Fetching my second Lidls grinder , that worked ok with genny power and i finished the job .. Do you think i've damaged the variable speed board ? I can't see that I could have burnt out the motor windings...

That's nice. When i was a lot , lot younger , and had hair , and a mum , i built a kit car...a Burlington SS , that looked a bit like a Morgan ..and Morgan drivers used to wave at me ,and i didn't ever wave back, as mine was a fake!! Me mum loved going in it , me wife hated it ..I put a 2.5 Triumph engine in it and drove it like an idiot and frightened her ...I gave it away to a school mate .. I'll find a picture...

Wasn't there was a " water pump" that worked by igniting a gas in a u bend , or a chamber , with a clack valve on the outlet end to stop the "pumped "water returning under gravity ....or something like that ??
Might have read an article it in ME or Stationary Engine ..
