You are a teacher right? If you could punch one of the really annoying kids, that would be payment enough for me. I'm a substitute teacher.

Well, maybe that thing with the gauges will help you out if you need to modify it.

That guy, if I read correctly, picked up a handful of those gauges for some $5 each.

Yeah, for special needs kids. Don't know why, but people don't like it when I slap them around too much...

I HAVE been playing with the idea of hooking up some sensors to the motor for temperature.....

Hey Paul, since you already built the shunt, couldn't you just use this?:

4 Digital Electronic Voltage DC 300A Panel Meter 34-654 - eBay (item 130336793476 end time Nov-10-09 22:56:11 PST)

50 or 100mv outputs though, but they weigh more than an ounce!

I also didn't see the link for your shunt/meter.
Can you post it?

Thanks
