Skutt Kiln Sitter Power Switch

Recommended Posts

Benhim    3

I disassembled my power switch which was a mistake because I can't seem to get it back together. I can't seem to find a tool that will fit inside the small holes on the back of the ceramic insulator where the nuts attach to the screws. I have a small socket that fits the nut, but I can't seem to find one that fits inside the hole.

Perhaps a pair of needlenose pliers? Or if you just need to hold the nut to mate it with the bolt, perhaps wedge a matchstick or similar in there to hold it enough before friction can take over?

My Rheostat was burned out so I wanted to check the power switch to see if there was a lot of carbon scoring. Had no idea they had elves put the switch together.

Got it back together. I put the screws in backwards and mounted the nuts on the front against the plate.

I assume that you mean the Kiln Sitter. If so, I know exactly what you are talking about. I solved the problem by grinding the outer barrel of a nut driver so that it would fit into the recess. I used a belt sander here at Paragon.
