I have noted (perhaps its just me being stupid) that when these things are new they draw a certain amount of current, best I have seen being 83 mA worse 200+ mA, I was thinking maybe as brushes wear down then more current is drawn but I am not a motor man, but it seems a good way to check if there is some life in the motor or at least what life will be there.
Can anyone put me straight here??
I want of course to sell good motors for good prices but also if I know a motor has a limited life left can offer these out much cheaper to someone that just wants to get a machine running to get some old tracks off etc etc
I am playing with Some Portastudios now and have a load of Tascam Cassette decks arriving, finding a source of belts is annoying as I order belts from 3 people for one machine and get 3 different sizes.
Probably as I get a belt in and I see it works will buy exactly more for my stock but put a few here.
I am not a daily blogger just write when something comes up
