Re: Blade stuck in work
- I was just noticing that the Chinese motor on mine has
vent holes on the bottom of the motor but no vents on the
shaft side. I wonder how much cooler it would run if vents
were added to that end?
I was thinking of this type of thermal cutout;
but I see these are only rated 6.3A for motors...
