Looking to replace the 204 frame motor I watched my favorite teach on the subject
and that pointed me to the plate on the motor I have
Reading deeper into this, this is an OLD style of motor frame. 204 Stopped being used in 1953… Of course, mine is a discontinued motor frame…
Looking more at this I see the 203 and the 204 frames are similar it’s the screw mounting width that is different. I think an adapter plate could work. The only dimension that matter is D and U. U is 3/4″ so the center of the motor must be 5″ from the bottom of the plate. Obviously P must be smaller or equal. Watch out for the boxes that stick off the side for the wiring to enter.
LOOKING AT A MODERN NEMA CHART:
All the newer motors have 7/8 shaft meaning the pully will also need to be changed. The 145T looks interesting… Some shopping:
There is hope.
there are charts for the motor mount brackets:
Took a look inside a JL subwoofer… quite the coil and suspension system. http://www.jlaudio.ca/home-audio-powered-subwoofers-fathom
JL audio dominates the Car stereo market in terms of driver quality. The salesman said the best line “We learned a lot from our 12 Volt line of products in designing this home theatre sub” so from now on, Car audio will be forever “the 12 volt industry”
I most certainly had a busy “reading week”. It started with finishing up a job My brother Mike started. Moving 7 pallets of equipment from my moms garage in Saskatoon. Followed by great visits with Family and friends. I’m sorry I did not get the chance to meet with everyone I had planned to visit with. Things got a little busy in the IT support world and there was so much family to visit!
Three consoles were packaged and palleted up for shipment across the country.
Modules were packed, boxed and palleted. A small fortune in bubble wrap and pallet wrap were employed.
This is the PSU for a console along with a 1″ Studer A80 8 track Recorder that was made transportable.
I’m excited to work on these projects again in my “Spare time”
Stay tuned for updates of what’s happening with this lot. We’re very excited for what’s planned :-)
Here is the prototype for the dinner Ward-Beck Systems Dinner Box 4 – Ready to be soldered – dB-4
The parts can be quickly ordered here and assembly the simplest DIY project out there.
Soldering and tests to follow!
Well after some time away, I’ve gotten back to the Dinner Box
The dinner box is a PCB that users can solder EDAC connectors that mate with Ward-Beck Systems Auxiliary modules.
With a standardized 5 PIN XLR power connector, users can simply power up (4) WBS filters and Compressors.
In Addition to power and audio, there is the interconnections stereo linking of the M466 compressors using either M466M OR M467 Noise gate modules.
the dB-4 also allows user to mix and match equalizers: any of the M462, M462A, M462B or M464 Filter interchange seamlessly into this bucket.
A balancing card for M472 eq modules is on the drawing board.
Here is a revised version.
The major change is the addition of XLR connectors… The idea of using a dB25 connector is now optional!
It did not last 3 weeks…

Both latches broke after putting up with other nonsensical deficiencies.
The inside compartments do not work nicely and are very bulky, the lining in the box takes up a lot of the volume and offers little to no protection. The tool holders in the lid fit only the Husky tools illustrated in the picture. If you take the lid lining out, it adds no volume to the case as it’s a lattice work of low grade PVC.
I think it’s actually made from old Garbage bags
Do not buy this product or any product with similar latches
Zero stars is not an option on the home depot site…
