I fucking love HP.

Why, you may ask, given that I've ranted about their crap so many times now? Great question!

I love HP because every time I go to town on their hardware because yet again it got me infuriated somehow, I don't feel bad about it afterwards. Instead I feel oddly satisfied, liberated from another piece of crap from them. And besides, usually it's their or Acer's shitty hardware that gets me worked up anyway.

That said, fuck you HP. Filthy Microsucking pieces of shit.

.. anyway. I've just went around disassembling an old vacuum cleaner this morning, to liberate its 800W single phase AC motor. I'll probably have to underrun it with a step-down transformer but at e.g. 200VAC it should probably work no problem 🙂

    If I read HP in italian and then interpret it with the slang of my city HP sounds a lot like "go home by foot".
    And I live far from the city, this is why I never go HP.

    I hope this motor is going to suck...

    @Gregozor2121 chances are that it will.. its coil windings aren't epoxied in resin, they're really just flapping in the breeze. I guess that that'll negatively affect the lifespan of it. So far I've tested it out of the enclosure though (with gloves on just in case) and it worked without a problem. But at 230V it quickly gets hot, even when its cooling fan mechanism was still attached. Hence why I think that I'll need to underrun it. Still though, considering that I got this for €10 at a garage sale, can't go bad! Buying this from China would've probably cost me at least 3-5 times more.

    @ralnivar oh, that lube. Not a gearhead here so no idea if there's even any in them, let alone how to reach them. Maybe @GyroGearloose can chime in on this?

    @Condor
    We you took it as if it was a negative thing! This is a motor from a vaccium so sucking is preferable!

    @Gregozor2121 oh, THAT kind of sucking 🤣 well at 800W it sucks even better than a whore on crack! Similarly you wouldn't want to put yer member in it though 😜
