    Am I caught in a Behr trap?

    I have two Behr switches. One has four posts, the other has 5 posts. You can have either one for the price of postage. PM me. I use a PWM switch bought on-line. The PWM switch only turns on and controls the speed of the fan. I had to install a separate switch linking the compressor and the thermostatic switch controlling the temperature. The Behr switch does all that in one. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HEXJUX8/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Deep & shallow head light buckets

    I have done this. It's not a 100% solution. But, it worked for me.
  4. Hello, there is a round metal horn plate that it goes to. The wire is red in my pictures. Caveat. The pictures are for a Petri hub. But, the idea is the same.

    Like new from the factory...

    What is the purpose of the strap to the hood?

    Modeled, printed, fit checked, uploaded. Made the walls three times as thick as the original.

    Thanks to a very kind faq member (Hal), I received the 6 fuse cover and a bonus hooded Tii clock shroud today. Of course, I modeled the shroud first. 😁 STL file is up at the usual place.

    New Reproduction: Mud Flaps

    +1 My company has contractual obligations to support products that have often 30 - 40 years service life. When we buy 5000 - 10000 of anything, they are cheap. Not so much with small lot sizes and quantities. The "set up charge", minimum material buys and other production costs have to be spread over smaller quantities. Where we no longer have the original tools or drawings, significant efforts have to be expended to "reverse engineer" the parts, create models, drawings, select and test materials (original may no longer be available).... Then, toolings will have to be made, T1 and T2 samples off the molds, first article inspections to verify dimensions, modifications to 3D models or drawings as required.... Then, actual qualification and testing. I applaud and commend your efforts to reproduce these parts. Bravo.

    Dual Extruders

    Made another attempt at co-extruding. Black and silver were co-extruded. Blue and white inserts were extruded separately.

    Dual Extruders

    This was my first attempt at printing using dual extruders. The two colors were deposited on the same layer. I used an ooze shield to help. No, the two filaments were not from the same vendor (in hindsight, I should have). Yes, I used ABS. I cheated with the threads. The fit was really tight, so, I cleaned the threads with an M15 1.5 tap. There is no plan for the knob. I am still learning this 3D printing thing. PM me if you would like the files for the knob to play with. I can't publish them - Don't want the IP guys to go after me.

    Should work. From the look of it, the damaged right side should be a mirror image of the left side. Thanks.

    Thanks Hal. A beat up cover would be fine. Do you also have the fuse box itself? The process is to model, print, fit check and repeat 🙂

    I can. But, I don't have one to copy from. Volunteer?

    Went through a couple of iterations for fit checks. Had to make some features much thicker to compensate for 3D printing. Model completed. File is at Thingiverse.
