If you have one of the old motion sensors with a photo eye most likely a LED lamp will not work with it, LEDs don't offer enough of a load like incandescent lamps do. The way to fix that.....and there are several is to turn on a relay and the relay turns on the LED lamps.

I received a vintage Trace SW4024 inverter the other day that someone had installed and left the electrical covers off allowing mice to enter and do their damage. The plan is to series stack the inverter with my existing inverter giving me a 240 volt split phase output. The whole inverter is contaminated with mouse waste causing corrosion on electrical connections, circuit board traces and components. I sprayed WD40 on everything inside hoping to stop further corrosion until I can get to this project. If I can save this inverter this will add greatly to my plan for energy self sufficiency.

Making up a series stacking cable for the Trace inverters, very tedious work soldering conductors to the DB25 connector.

Now remember the golden rule folks, what you build also shall you maintaine. None of this business going over to your buddie's house to work on his engine and drink a case of beer. You need to stay home and work on that property you wanted so bad.

I'm trying to setup a small machine shop to do my own welding, cutting, milling, fabricating, and metal lathe work, and with that comes tooling.

came to us as a stray and had a wonderful healthy life with us. This photo was taken the day before we had her put down and you can see in her eyes that she is not well. RIP Xena.

Some people call them outbuildings, I call them "Dependencies" The operation of the property is dependent on theses structures. Think about it.
