    Something in the 120hz range and lower.

    I know that relays are used for buzzers in alarm clocks with coils, etc, but I can see how consistency might be an issue beyond X frequency.

    I'm at a...

    I thought about the 26AWG, but the highest voltage carried is low. 5 volts, I think? This is all trigger signal, relayed in the welding machine itself.

    I'll do some preliminary testing to see if...

    After pricing tube mic cable with 7 conductors, I ended up getting a different shielded cable. It's not as flexable or as robust as a mic cable, but it's quite a bit less expensive and it is 100%...

    Nice. I like the hole idea. So did you just set the guard up so the hole aligns with the side of the grinder wheel on the bottom/ side to get linear grinding?

    They have another grinder that is...

    $39 Harbor Freight tungsten sharpener

    So, after seeing this on the shelf, the last time I went in to Harbor Freight for some cutoff wheels, I thought I'd bring in a piece of 3/32" tungsten to see if it would work, without doing anything...

    I've been looking at mic cable. 8 conductor is more common for solid state tube mics than 7 wire. If I run 8 leads, I'll have a spare or I could use the shield to ground the foot pedal, to create a...

    Wow. That digital pulse box is some task. The primary reason I wanted pulse control was for higher frequency DC, like around 60-120hz for lowered heat range on steel, but it may be more effort than...

    Decided to skip the adjustable link on the pedal. All that would do is adjust L arm to pedal distance, which I don't feel is necessary. The idea was to get the rack and cog adjusted to absolute ohm...

    It's definitely going to be apart in a pile of wires, while in trial and error, before I end up using anything in the pedal. The volt range for the signal seems like it's well within the micro switch...
