So my Nautilus burned a cord right at the base of the machine so I had to cut up an extension cord to rewire the machine on the spot to finish the job... Jim Davidson is my hero on this stuff ,,,,, Thank you Jim
I didn't have a soldering iron or shrink wrap but I got-er-doneDid that once with a Cimex that fried the plug. Was in the middle of a hospital sitting in a wheelchair wiring a new plug with a box cutter and some tape. Pretty sure my old boss still has it like that.
How well do the field crimps hold up? I've considered them since I hardly pop hoses and don't have a press to put regular crimps on. My usual options are pay too much at a shop or go butter up my old boss to let me use his.Redneck Engineering is a must have skill for a cleaner... I have built all kinds of things and rigged stuff that was broken to get through the job, which by the way a handy thing to have in your repair arsenal is called a Field Crimp... These are quick repair ends for your pressure hose that you can use if you blow a hose during a job, I like to have 3 or 4 of these on the van at all times...You also need a set of Cable Shears found in the electrical section at home depot get the quality ones that are sturdy enough to cut through hose not the cheapo ones... https://www.steam-brite.com/reusabl...cSEbyPgqltTA_9GIvKYPm1PxIwVv3n1xoC24AQAvD_BwE
Careful, some hospitals and other facilities may require UL-listed electrical attachments on equipment that operates in wet conditions. If you cut off a molded plug and replace it with something non-molded, you void the UL listing and can get in trouble if someone decides to inspect you.ten gauge cords with proper 20amp ends are your best friends first thing you need to do is cut off all those molded ends proper hospital grade 20amp plugs
We have our own 1/4" hose swager and use field repair couplings too. Field repair couplings are just as good on Neptune hose as a swaged one. I have not used them on any other brand of hose and can't speak for their durability or longevity in that regard.How well do the field crimps hold up?
