Michael's MR-02-EV

Well spotted ... when setting up I was turning up the power supply dial whilst watching a volt meter with the probes accross the battery terminals which was ... dumb.

I very artistically framed-up and took the photo ... then noticed the power supply meters!

Breaking up the pack

Parts from the U.S.

I purchased my motor, inverter and vacuum pump from Metric Mind in the US and used their ‘preferred’ freight company FedEx. FedEx locally looked after everything including all duties, taxes, freight fowarding costs and were very helpful.
