we seem to be attracting many newbies all the time. many ask what type of motor to buy. we advise as best we can, and tell them to bench test their motor...
we need a sticky on how to bench test a motor!! IE: how to measure amps INTO A BATTERY, how to place dc loads on the bank if voltage gets too high, how to measure voltage, how to hot wire a doc wattson with a 100A shunt.
i think a good solid sticky could eliminate a lot of questions! i could write it, or if someone else wants to write it that's fine also.
just wanted to throw it out there, as i know i had questions about the subject when i was benching my motor.
