Is it just me?

Posted by Andy on 11/12/10

I am not sure if it's just me or what but I seem to notice at least on my linear machines that my "1.25 inch coils" run longer hours without overheating than my linears "1in coils" Have any one else have notice something like that? maybe it is just me i don't know.

In my experience short coil machines tend to be warmer, yes. Shouldn't overheat to the point of impairing function though. I only really like using them for liners and smaller round work so I don't have to run them too high. I only have 1 short coil shader which is a Junebug (Joe Ryan) machine that never seems to heat up at all, but I think that's because its a lower tension setup.

if a machine is gettin hot to the point where you have to stop using it then something is wrong with it. none of my machines get past barely warm. one inch, full size, one a half coil , half coil one inch shader, one inch liner, none of em.

LESS CABLE=MORE HOT, so all the machines with 1" coils become more hot than 1,25", this is the OHM LAW,

that u wanna have the same resistance and coils don become hot u need put more cable on the short coils, example the 1,25" coils are 8 WRAP, so the 1" coils must be 9 or 10 WRAP, or u use a thinner cable but u gonna loose little bit power

hope u understansd, my english not the best...

Thanks DENIXX I totally understand it now.

Spring tension also plays a part in this, higher tension means the coils have to work harder to pull down the A bar. That could be contributing to the hot coils.

sure, also SPRING have important part on this

Ohm's law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points, and inversely proportional to the resistance between them.[1]

The mathematical equation that describes this relationship is:[2]

I = v/r

where I is the current through the conductor in units of amperes, V is the potential difference measured across the conductor in units of volts, and R is the resistance of the conductor in units of ohms. More specifically, Ohm's law states that the R in this relation is constant, independent of the current.
Not sure if this helps but that's what ohm's law is.
