A few people have asked me about the 120/240 volt conversion so here are three of photos of it. All the wires are the same colours and it stands on a plate that uses the same fixing holes and allows more air through the controller.

Regards

Dave
Dave:

I just purchased a Mk3 100V version which has an external transformer to do the 120 to 100V step down.
I would like to do the 120 V conversion.
Is this a custom transformer or an off the shelf unit ?

if the former, please PM me to let me know how to get one from you.
If the latter, is there a part number or specs you can share ?

Best Regards, J

Hi J

It is a custom Transformer, I'll have a look to see if I have any left. So far I believe we have done 4 so there might be one !

Regards Dave

Default A new to me Mk3 - just arrived.

Whoo hooo!, what a great day!

I just received a new to me Mk3
It is in really good shape cosmetically and it ran fine at all three speeds when I did a quick speed test.
The previous owners reported that it was just serviced and re-calibrated.
I don't have any reason to doubt him but I plan to look under the hood at some point to make sure all looks ok.

I have yearned for a Mk3 for quite a while and I finally picked one up.
The Next step is to build a custom plinth for it.
For now I am just going to use 4 layers of 3/4" baltic birch ply while I accumulate the right materials.

I also have an Analog Fidelis chip but am not in a big hurry to swap out the old chip unless you guys feel it is a must do right away thing.
Comments and thoughts welcome.
