Lol. That's what happens when you leave things lying around around here. Turn your back for a second and they get sucked into the vortex. :twisted:

I'm surprised (and glad) that it is still working !
What best than a Brugnetti part to serve the Aurora rebirth. :wink:

There are exactly zero markings on the motor so I guessed and stood a long way away before turning it on the first time. :)
It runs rather hot - possibly not intended for a 100% duty cycle - so it may have to be replaced fairly soon.

Thomas,

Your writing is just splendid. I found myself in Plattsburgh this last week, dreading that I didn't have my passport on me. Because if I had, you can bet your britches i would have driven over and bothered you...

Cheers!

Lol. Thanks Jake. Plattsburgh is only an hour away! To think - just a short drive and you could have been deburring boiler tubes ;)
