Good weekend results. The Jet 3HP motor spins freely with no internal noise nor smoke, just the outside casing needs alot of TLC. Probably will inquire about changing out bearing to see the $$$ damage.
Also, updated my electrolysis tank a little. Used plastic 3/4” brackets to keep the 12” rebar rods in place but yet loose enough to pull out when needed for the smaller tank. Bought rebar tie wire as that’s the closest thing to steel I could find at Lowe’s, because of the rebar tie wire strength to hold objects in the water as these infeed/outfeed rollers are not exactly light.
I have the infeed roller cooking for the last 3 hours and looking much better results in this short time as compared to my half hazard quickie slapped together version 1.0 electrolysis tub.
