Default Re: T-Shirt Dryer

Hey Jeff, Just after we talked I checked my battery array and found that 7 out of the 32 deep cell batteries had dead cells! I had to replace all 7. Talk about a day wasted. We've had really crappy weather as well... The winds blew about 20 shingles off my roof.

Today was the first day I could spend any time on my dryer. I was afraid I might blow a circuit with this but the photo is proof evident that I can handle it. I have the lamps broken down into two different arrays in parallel. I will be able to turn half of the lamps off and the other half will still be controlled by the timer. This should be a little less harsh on the electricity if necessary.

We actually have an electric car club here... I've had many a discussion with friends on this subject. I work with aeronautical engineers. You can only imagine the ideas these guys have in their heads. I look forward to speaking with you again. Let me know when you've got some spare time and we'll have to arrange another call.

Bob ?;O)
