Moving to Sydenham

Hello Frank
May I take this opportunity in welcoming you to the forum.
I wish I could do a swap and move to Italy! Well at least during the cold spells here (8 months of the year)!!!
I trust you'll be a regular forum member as soon as you're a resident here.
Have a safe journey

A new topic

Well said Bet!
So what shall we talk about?
Err errr errrrrr I know...
What happened to the large black cat which was reported by a few. Apparently it was spotted in the Sydenham area.
Was it a hoax or some well overfed domestic cat?
Does anyone know more? Did any forum members actually witness it?

Your Motor on the Woodturning Lathe

Hello Gemstone I've read your question regarding the burnt out motor for your lathe. 1P relates to Single Phase. ie normal domestic voltage. 4000RPM NOM means 4000 revolutions per minute, NOM = Nominal no load speed. The conversion for HP to Watts; 746 Watts = 1 Horsepower. 2.25x746=1678.5 Therefore...
