I know experienced slotters won't learn a lot but for all others, it could be useful.

It's important that we do just that. Newcomers join us all the time. Some of them will become full enthusiasts because someone took the time to help them.

As we try and help them, quick references are priceless. This is one of them.

Free slotburger for you. Well earned.

"I know experienced slotters won't learn a lot but for all others, it could be useful."

You're wrong, Christian. Some of us veteran slotters don't know much at all about these new motors, by new, I mean, anything new after around 2004 or so. This is very helpful.

Christian, a lot of us experienced slotters know a lot of stuff that's not true. It's like the old saying "what you don't know won't hurt you but what you do know that's not true can get you killed".

Great primer. I had some ideas of what the terms meant but this cleared up some misconceptions.
