Thanks Cyco, when I was in high school I had red bloodshot eyes a lot. Must have been COVID 😜

It's sad that I was expecting this to happen, but it's still disappointing.

Please keep yourselves safe, and keep yourselves informed about covid. We keep finding new symptoms. Latest one I heard of was red eyes, but they're also saying persistent hiccups could be a symptom of covid 19. Go online, read up, and check multiple sources.

Well can't say I'm surprised and yet still disappointed.
It does take the pressure off to finish my project now I don't get to show it though.
To think I could have doubled my IQ my moving a hundred meters north.
Catch you all next year.

G'day again gang,

No doubt you've all been watching the news about how well Victoria is dealing with the Corona Virus (NOT) and since we are now in 6 weeks of lockdown things are no longer looking very promising for our Eureka Nationals in October.

So unfortunately we have decided to cancel the whole event.  Cry

Sorry about this but we really don't have much choice as you can well imagine unless someone comes up with an "instantaneous" cure between now and then.

for Life

Hello Everyone,

Looking to buy either a completed Purvis Eureka or in an uncompleted project state.  Preferably in NSW if possible, however, I am open to looking out of state.

If you have one for sale please contact me on my email;

Many thanks!

Been a while I know.
Pretty much finished Electrics - New loom.
Just a few wires to go onto the motor and of course run the cables up to the roof which isn't on yet.
So on that it was time to install my lifting arms and new Linak actuators.
I picked these lifters up at the last AGM and I big thanks goes out to LINAK for being an awesome sponsor.
These also came with the LINAK Electronic control system which includes soft start motor controllers and wireless remote.

Pics Here:

In a previous post I mentioned using Gun Blue on my arms. Pic1 is the chemicals. This worked great.

I had to make lower supports for the lifters so a bit of 6mm steel welded onto some 13mm bolts did the trick. Pic 2
This has the advantage to allowing for easy height adjustment and the motor can still swivel as it moves up.

The lifting bolt on the front arms had been mashed Pic3. Note part of it is 3/16 threat and some is 5/16 thread. These had to go.

Pic 4 is a before and after of the new bolt. I moved the bolt 30mm further down to give better roof height as well as some separation of the Linak arm to the pivot bolts when down.
The trade off in doing this is that more torque is needed by the Linak motor. These are rated at up to 20 amps so I ran nice heavy 30 amp cable all the was to the motors.

Of course then I had to re-Blue the arms. Pic 5

Pic 6 is to give you an idea of the up position height.

Pic 7 is how I secured the Linak arm the lifting bolts. Captured Nut in the Linak U section. Not much torque on this nut so a little lock tight and it will stay put.

Finally Pic 8 is actually a movie of the arm movement. Its only 5 seconds long but that's all it needs to be.
The key in the front is the emergency open if the remote fails.

Sorry if this plays on its side. Windows player was like that but VLC plays it correctly.
Hope to post the finished wiring soon.
