Was having a carpet laid earlier this week and decided to fix a squeaky floorboard.
Never had this board lifted before.
Look what I found! :eek:

For you lovers of 'old' equipment found these in a cupboard at work!

Some of the scrap motors we throw out. The big one is a 850HP squirrel cage 3 phase 8 pole from a steel mill. It was beyond economical repair so the customer said scrap it and get them a modern one. That is an exception, they don't normally come that big. Usual size ranges from FHP to about 30Kw.

Already asked asked and the answer unfortunately was an emphatic, 'No chance.'
Would have liked them myself.
They even have the original spec sheet with them.
Will try to get a copy.

That's a shame :cry:

To find that in a cupboard you must work for a well established company???

Its well established but has changed names over the years.

and more importantly why is there a single socket under your floor is for the mice to do their housework?

They didn't need a double! :LOL: :LOL:

is that a clampmeter with 3 interchangeable dials???

Yes Col, 100amp, 200amp and 400amp heads.
If I remember correctly the spec sheet gives things like the dimensions in imperial measurements.
Doesn't comply to GS38 obviously!
That plumbings a right mess! I still use a square D Wiggy at work.

The biggest motors we have at work are 250kW and all the lights go off briefly when they start!
Original name??




then just over 1 year ago amalgamated with Dutch company ERIKS and became ERIKS UK with branches throughout the country covering a multitude of different products related to industry.

www.eriks.co.uk (I think) :LOL:
