I posted this further down the page looks like no one seen it.
Can anyone explain simply how a centrafugal switch works to me ..thats if this thing im abvout to describe is one..
This fritz I'm doing up has some sort of doofer bolted to the end of the armature shaft on the outside of the motor that looks like a mini generator,with what looks to be like a comutator in the middle with two magnets on the outside.
the commutator bit does not have any feed or return electrically......dont know what's behind the magnets .....but wiring exits from behind them.....and the wiring then goes into the main electrical cupboard.
how does this lot work ...I need to know because someone has bi-passed a lot of stuff in the electrical cabinet.
I like things to be original..it just pleases me.
I just love the old frankenstein electrical gear it just looks so powewrfull and forbidding and was probably very expensive in its time.
anyone ever seen one of those mercury vapour rectifiers in action...a sight to behold!!!
also does anyone in the uk have any siemens rotary drum switches and contactors from the late forties early 50's in good condition in the uk.
all the best..mark
