Over the next week I am building a seed ball machine "Seed Baller" so for all those hands on people I will post a how to . MATERIALS - Dryer or washing machine motor - Dryer belt and pully - Blue Barrell - 4 x castors - Portable RCD - Mounting frame for casters and barrell. Step One Moter Build The best motor for this type of design would be one out of a comercial clothes dryer or washing machine.The one in this build is out of a Maytag washing machine. I would have preferred to use one out of a dryer as there is less modification reqd but could only get my hands on the washer motor. This is the motor straight out of the washing machine. The mods I need to do are:- 1) Change the drive shaft from washer belt to dryer belt (washer belts are not big enough to fit over a blue barrel) 2)Get wiring diagram and rewire motor to run off an applience lead. I recommend this step only to people with electronics or electrical experience/skills. After all there is always a hazard of electric shock or blowing the motor up if wired incorrectly. Once again it is easier to wire up a dryer motor (for maytag anyway) than a washer motor as the washer motor I am using has a capacitor start winding which makes for more connections and comprehension of the wiring diagram. BTW most comercial washers and dryers have a wiring diagram inside them (taped to the inside of the machine where the timer lives in my case). I wont explain in detail how to wire the motor because if you cant confidently figure it out for yourself then you should probably get a pro to do it. Just find a Perme electrician and offer them some of the finnished product. **NOTE** : The original DRYER motor that I was going to use did not need the Capacitor as shown above. Before installing the motor into the finnished "Seed Baller" it would be wise to build a box/shield for the motor to go into as there will be water being sprayed around. Hence the use of the portable RCD. Just like you dont see the exposed motor on a cement mixer. Now that the motor is done for now lets put it aside and start building the "Tumbler" and its roller stand. I will build it this week and post next weekend. Any questions are welcome.
