  1. I'll take those please
  2. Thank you - so the bridge rectifier is acting as a proportional control of flow and therefore speed? If that's the case probably superfluous in my application. Very grateful thanks.
  3. Sorry - will get one tomorrow. Here https://www.mouser.co.uk/ProductDetail/Vishay-Semiconductors/VS-26MB140A?qs=CDqwynd4ZNpY0LehKXjjEw%3D%3D is the item in question. Battery in the box is 12v which has a Split charge system attached. Normal 13 pin plug so I would guess it's intended for 12v normally. I'll have a closer look at the circuit tomorrow to try and see what it's connected to. Thanks for the responses!
  4. Don't know! It's definitely a bridge rectifier but I don't know whether that could be used to reduce voltage. I'm happy with relay ladder logic etc but what little electronic bits do is just a black art to me !
  5. Should make clear that this is in the existing circuit and I don't have one in mine.
  6. Looking for some electrical help please. My hydraulic lift trailer is not lifting or lowering. I've designed a two relay circuit to power the pump in forward and reverse which works well. My issue is that I simply don't understand why the attached component is there! I believe it to be a bridge rectifier but only three connections are in use and there is no AC anywhere in this area - it's all 12v DC. Could it be there to cover someone pressing both buttons at once? Can anyone help?
  7. Signed up - apologies for the delay but I'm changing bank account
  8. If he's really looking for a challenge he could try and make the 'snorkel' headlamp washers which are stupidly priced iirc. Don't know where you'd get a unit to work from and what the market would be though.
  9. I know you probably don't need another project but couldn't you DIY one using a Slew Ring?
  10. Don't know if it's your thing or if your itinerary works with availability but the 'joop jazz boat' is around at the time you're in France. http://www.pianodulac.eu/ The piano du Lac us outside our house tomorrow so can let you know what that's like if you're interested.
  11. It's the over £40k £325 a year extra I want to avoid. Looking for a 4wd estate and you quickly get over that threshold for quite ordinary cars! Happy to accept I'm a tight fisted northerner but the Porsches mean I pay enough already!
  12. I'm considering a change of my daily and the numbers put a low mileage 66 or very early 17 reg at a distinct advantage!
  13. No - the first year is a once only so normal rate after that. Obviously no passage of tax between owners now so will have to budget for 6 or 12 months straight away. Other complication is the extra tax for cars over £40k new registered from April 17 onwards (iirc) whilst it's 5 years supposedly it starts at year 2 so will apply on cars up to 6 years old!
  14. Don't know Alfas but this looks good https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154012244440
