I have a Beseler Dicro 45s that I am thinking of disconnecting the fan. It has a little vibration that I can feel when it runs. I have cleaned the blades and put a little oil on the motor bearings but it still has a little vibration when I touch the outside with my hand.
I don't expose it for very long times and between exposures it might sit for 5 minutes. I would think that would be long enough for the lamp to cool down enough to not worry about heating the insides up.
I thought I might also put a switch on the side or front to turn the fan off when I need to make the exposure. From what I can tell, the electronic circuit board is just for controlling the lamp voltage.
Has anyone tried this idea before?
Any ideas maybe without buying another fan motor.
