I fear the Motor is dead or near that point… and I hate spending money
Arghhh!  A piece of my machinery came close to death last night!  No. No. I didn’t die or get hurt… the machine did.
On May 25th, 2012 I wrote a Blog Posting describe how my old Atlas Lathe motor had taken a turn for the worse… and I replaced it with a second hand motor for $50.
It was a second hand motor at that time… and last evening the possible defects in that second hand motor started to show.  The motor was very hot and at one point it shut down right in the middle of when I needed it the most.
Now if you have read the post that I wrote on May 25th, 2012, I did some wondering at the time. Wondering if my dad was watching over me from his heavenly reward…
Well today is the second round of my dad looking at what I am about to have to do… go back to the motor shop to see if anything can be done for the motor I bought so cheap.
Now maybe my dad thinks we should buy another motor – maybe even a new one to save the time and my sanity…?
Oops – can’t blame my dad for that one… but rather the bit of Scottish DNA that I have rolling around in my body. I am tight and hate to spend money on things that I don’t need to… or don’t want to… or…
But the motor was only $50 and that $50 has produced Hundreds of more dollars over this year and 4 months.
Today is a “Blood and Body test” day… off to the Lab shortly… then off to look for a new motor.  No complaints here… I will meet some amazing people today… and some amazing benefits will come from all of this…
Wahoo – I am alive and well… and ready to go!
