  • 1/2 ball light heddon

    I seem to have a little problem. I'm blowing circiut boards on my indicator on mask unit. I have heddon masks. We had someone wire the turret jam switch on the same posts as the deck jam switch( ts2-2/ts2-3) well this left the machine running even with a deck jam. Not a good idea, to say the least. So, I wired it the way the wiring diagram says to, and started blowing the low voltage fuse. tracked that problem down, and now guess what. I blow the 1/2 ball light circiut board. I'm not good at electrical by no means, so if anyone can help, I really need it. Thanks

    I think I know where you can get some used circuit boards, and repairs. I will check tomorrow and post back to you.

    Feel free to call if you have any questions.

      found the problem. The wires from the transformer had gotten switched around. the wire that goes to ts2-4 was on ts2-6 and vise versa. too much voltage I guess.

        Hello Chuck!

        I am the mechanic at Guntersville. How are things going up in Madison? Did y'all get any flooding problems with all of this rain? We found a few more roof leaks that's about it. How's that tourney going? Are the guys from down here still leading?

        Drop me a line sometime and we can share notes.

          Running them on 32 volts, not good for the life cycle. Here in Wash-A-Holeing-Ton I've seen mechs get cheap and use 12volt 1156 auto lamps and put a power resister inline on the back of the masking unit, until one caught on fire, it was an old Astro mask that had the zipper black plastic and the resistor was laying on the plastic........ Fire in the hole,........Damn bowlers can run fast. Some people shouldn't be allowed anything sharper than a spoon. Wheat farmers, fix everything with bubble gum and bailing wire.

          Anybody ever see a detector go around in a circle with the 1 to 1, now thats funny. They get pissed when you laugh........It's better then crying about it.

            Hey Bruns,

            we got a little flooding. Had to stay closed for awhile because none of the employees could make it to work. they were lucky. I live about 100 yards from work, so I was in here working. Thats the way it goes I guess.
