A lot of patriotism as well.

RCT, When I served in the USAF they taught us to never re-paint an electric motor. This can supposedly cause overheating. I have never tested this but thought If I didn’t paint I didn’t need to test. Patriotic saw you have here.

When I was in the USAF I heard the same thing. The Engineers in the USAF’s tend to think that the most impotent aspect of design is weight. Extra paint weighs more. Working for the US Navy I found the insulation value from extra paint can affect heat transfer but not vary much and on this motor the old paint was removed before the new paint went on. Of course most of the paint was already gone. The paint’s insulation is much less then the sawdust build-up and I have done what I can to reduce that. thanks for the input.
What did you do for the Air force?
I was a Flight Engineer on the C5 Galaxy, after cure chef, an base supply

I was a Crew Chief or Pad Chief as some called us, in a Titan II ICBM system.

Have your say...
