Leftover Dryer Parts
« on: November 07, 2018, 12:19:48 PM »
Built a motorized trailer dolly for my boats with the motor/gearbox/controller leftover from scrapping an old
American dryer. 1/3hp moving a 5000 lb boat.

That's pretty cool.
It's not a job if you love doing it.

awesome!
Yes, we've won our share of awards, and yes, I've tested stuff and read the scientific papers, but ultimately take everything I say with more than just a grain of salt! So if you are looking for trouble, just do as I say or even better, do something I said years ago!

Must be a screen printer to be that Rube Goldburgish.  Probably went to Purdue!

Thanks guys.

Gearbox is 50:1 and chain drive is 4:1.

Ralphie is one of my dogs and he's built like a brick chithouse so I figured the name worked.
