The tape over the electromagnets core (which is the MANUFACTURES direction for doing this) is the way to go.A resistor to lower the drive magnet current will reduce that, while leaving the rest of the electronics with the full voltage so that they can function correctly.
I have it on good authority that some one should look for the companies data sheet. Some one much smarter than me suggested doing that, but didn't follow through.It's only the TS that doesn't appear to be listening. Several different people have recommended following the manufacturer's instructions. We can't force the TS to do it.
There wasn't anything for the person that suggested that the TS look for the company's data sheet to follow through on. The TS either did or did not take the suggestion. Their choice. Someone else posted the instructions from the manufacturer on how to do this (and I have it on good authority that this person apparently isn't even very smart). The TS either did or did not take that advice. Their choice. It doesn't sound like nobody is listening -- it sounds like just the TS isn't listening.I have it on good authority that some one should look for the companies data sheet. Some one much smarter than me suggested doing that, but didn't follow through.
Exactly what I suggested in post #13. However, my concern is how much current the pot can handle. Since I don't know how much current is passing through that coil, nor do I know how much the pot intended for use can handle, I can't be sure if this solution would work. My approach would have been to test various resistances using actual resistors, not pots. Potentially a 1 or 2 watt resistor. But again, I don't know without hard numbers. Voltage and resistance of the coil must be known before a feasible solution can be reached. We can assume a single cell battery such as a C or D cell battery, therefore max voltage may be 1.56 volts (new). Don't recall if someone listed the coil resistance, I'll review all the posts from the TS to see if that was stated. If I find such I'll edit this post.
Because current in collector coil limited by coil or coil+pot resistanceBut reducing the current also reduces the feedback, so there is then the risk that the oscillation will stop.
