Oct. 15th, 2012 09:33 pm Electric Offroad mike madness

Over the last year or two I've been having a great time tinkering with electric vehicles. I've come to love ebikes as endlessly fun and practical... But the need for MOAR POWERRRR!!!! has overcome me.
My 2KW bike just isn't enough anymore.

Nov. 8th, 2011 08:14 pm Cup Day Feeds

Just spent the last several days doing catering contracting for cup day here in CHCH. Its been great to get out of the classroom and into some real cooking in a real kitchen for a real Exec Chef.

What a blast, I'm totaly shagged now, been on my feet since 4AM, But waht a day
Theres a crazy energy in a busy kitchen that is just infectious, I am starting to see why people love cooking for a living, no job I have ever had have I worked a 14 hour day at breakneck speed and still been smiling at the end of it. Fuckin ripper

Ah well off to bed, back in class early tomorrow to start the pastry section of my course.

Aug. 4th, 2006 07:32 pm Star/Delta Fun!!!

Well late today (friday) I was working on a lift here in CHCH (I work for a major lift company here)
it was a hydraulic lift, with a PLC based controler (in other words, one of those CHEEEAPPPP shitty lifts)
apperantly cheap enough to not bother with a mechanical interlock on their Star/Delta Contacters,
andway, because of the freaky PLC controler we couldnt get the lift off the buffers (we had sunk it till it was sitting on the buffers)
se we manualy started the hydraulic pump, which involves 2 people I was in charge of the main contactor and the delta, my workmate was in charge of the star contactor, first time it went fine, we started the pump ok, managed to mopve the lift nowhere (it was a unfamiliar valve block on this hydraulic)
it seemed we needed to energise a valve to get the lift to start to move up, so we changed our wiring to open the valve when the motor went Delta........

so we start again, We get the motor started on star, I then get my work mate to release star so I can press in delta,. but I'm a bit too fast, and manage to push it in before he has released the star contactor

Well.. that means we have a Direct 400V short...


we're greeted by a huge blue flash, lots of smoke, and flying peices of molten copper in all directions.. 15 minutes before knockoff time.

se we spent some more hours there replacing contactors, which arnt cheap BTW.......
and my nice Stylich Bolle Safty glasses are fucked now too, they have spots of molten copper embedded them now :(

well hey, better that than my eyes
