Rewiring the platemaking machine
- This afternoon we completely rewired the ballast board of my A&V
Orbital VIII platemaking machine, replacing the CosmoTronic 20/40
ballasts with WorkHorse 5s, which feed two lamps instead of one. This
was one of those experiances I would never want to have to repeat
again in this lifetime. Amazingly, when we clicked on the exposure
switch, all the lamps lit up.
So, anyone needing any used but working CosmoTronics (which are no
longer manufactured), I can supply.
