I didn't learn to drive at 5 mph.....I think I did more burn outs and **** raising before I learned to drive sensibly..haha So now that I have successfuly sewed a finger and made a few other mistakes maybe I can slow down and do some serious learning. Sort of like putting it in drive and easing into the gas pedal instead of low gear and flooring it. haha
I'm look at doing my door panels, carpeting and trunk for starters.
Any good ideas for using the old clutch motor??? maybe a bench grinder??
Unfortunately, the clutch motor is a dinosaur. It has and had one specific purpose, which was to operate an industrial sewing machine. The infinite control electronics offers has eliminated mechanical processes as the system of choice for connecting and disconnecting a load from a motor. There are no good uses for the clutch motor now, other than holding a door open or being an extremely heavy paper weight.
