    Re-awakening an old thread,

    So, I picked up one of these for a tenner off GT, it's a Breville Breadman with the big block 425W motor.

    Can I just ask, if I remove the blue and yellow from the board and connect to the mains with a switch, I'm good to go? (w/ earths intact)

    I don't want to seem patronising (God knows how guilty I've been in this department) but if you're not completely sure what you're doing with mains power wiring at least get someone who is to check it over - preferably a sparky. 240 volts can be unforgiving and even if it "works" the next person (or child) who comes along can get a rude shock.

    Hey cepticwhat sort of motor is that?
    It looks nice and neat and a complete package
    I’ve also been looking at a similar type of motor on eBay for about $14 12v 120rpm that also has a 10kg torque

    It is the base housing from an old Kambrook Bread Maker that I purchased new in '97. I replaced it with aI$10 salvo's machine that makes bigger loaves.

    Using the existing housing keeps the motor and reduction pulley in alignment. The motor cover is the aluminium bread pan with switch added and vent holes drilled. I wanted to try this option, using an 8mm to 10mm spider coupler, as it minimised the sideways torque on the pulley, removed mounting issues and allowed me to enclose the belt, 240v and other bitey bits.

    Here are some pics of how I mounted the housing on the bamboo base board that came with the mill. I had to cut and notch the base board to mount the casing. A hammer sorted out the aluminium bread-pan mounting points. IMG_20181213_103050.jpeg IMG_20181213_103212.jpeg IMG_20181213_103248.jpeg IMG_20181213_103347.jpeg IMG_20181213_103507.jpeg
