Garage door opener, gotta share this, unusual, unique design. one moving part.

11-21-2011 02:20 AM by Craftsman on the Lake | 156 comments »

Update two years later 9/16/13: The opener is still working like the day I bought it. First one that’s lasted this long on my large wooden door. I don’t know where exactly to put this so I guess a blog entry is the best. First of all I am just a guy in Maine with an 18 ft wood garage door. Heavy and older. (the door… I guess me too) Anyway, I am not in any way affiliated with any garage door people or companies or stores that sell them. I’ve had a few garage door...

Sanding machine communication line and ground line burnout.

01-05-2019 04:49 PM by fkwoodcnc | 150 comments »

The cause of the burnout is caused by burning the earth wire. 1. Change the earth wire first. 2. Remove the neutral wire with the red mark. 3. Replace the two burnt communication wires. Last time we suggest that the earth wire must grounded well. Please check attached picture. We marked yellow is ground terminal block.On earth wire must be settled under the ground 1.5 meter with a metal bar.

Remodeling a family cottage #4: Window casings and LED lighting

08-08-2013 09:25 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 82 comments »

Well, it’s been awhile. I got all the oak planed and jointed and made all the window sills and casings and got them installed. I also installed the oak facing on the underside of the header from the load bearing wall I tore down a ways back. I installed some LED light strips on both sides of the header. They have an RF controller so that I can change colors, flash, strobe, blend, dim, etc. The power supply sits in a cavity on the wall where all the internet stuff resides. this will b...
