    That's right,you'll be hearing from the law firm of Dewy,Cheetum,and Howe about your reckless posting here.
    Remember the lack of any credible evidence is proof the conspiracy is working!

    coil of wire vs. resistive pot for choke

    If we are adding resistance for a choke whats the difference from using a coil wire than a resistive pot?


    How does length of wire effect the frequency change?

    what frequencies are the motors running at?

    would a frequency modulator work?

    or small step down tranformers?

    Macgyver told me I could use a smalle speaker as a choke?

    No real difference, in theory

    ...but much more expensive, I'd think.

    The resistive pot would really be a high-current power rheostat, capable of handling surges of 40+ amps. I don't even know if you can find one in the milliohm range, which is what you'd need to make it comparable to a wire wound choke.

    Totally agree! Don't need chokes with toothbrush motors........
    Why do I do this to myself?
