Default Merry christmas from Hickory NC via NY

Hi, I was a maintenance mechanic for a large bakery in upstate new york for over 30 years, during which I had the privilege of working side by side with some very sharp peeps. Some were union electricians, which is where I learned most of my electrical skills. But we did most everything in house, pneumatic/hydraulic,machining,welding,fabricating,ect. I retired from there and moved to NC a couple of years ago. Now I work for a small metal company, again doing most everything. Maintaining,installs,repair, fabrication, machine operation. Always busy, working mostly alone now.

This is a professional electricians forum Mx.
Are you working in the electrical field?

I worked for many years in manufacturing myself and did my share of mechanical work. On third shift, mechanics and electricians worked closely together. Many nights I did nothing but mechanical work.
But I was an electrician.
Where would you put yourself?

They dont have any full time electricians, I am it. Although not a union electrician, I have taken several classes over the years.
I do the electrical troubleshooting and repairs. Some plc programing. Electrical installs for machines. I also do the mechanical work. I joined the forum because I just installed a vfd on a machine and it is running, but i am getting slip under load. I am going to post questions under the proper topic. Hopefully I can get to the bottom of it with some help.
