In that case, I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to arrange a switch & 60 Hz reference. Whether your utility would approve the arrangement or not is a different matter. Here's a web page describing su

Then either the plastic pieces or the wheel are defective, IMO. I have the same setup from Enco, and mine fit snugly. The wheel should be snug on the arbor. However, IMO it's fairly normal for a new

Just a WAG ... I'd say the "short" was through part of the mouse and high enough resistance that it never drew enough current to trip the breaker. Most likely the wire was not chewed through all the

The current will be fine, but I have some doubts about doubling the voltage. Plus, if I remember right, their light bulbs don't use the same base as ours. Randall ___________________________________
