Another point I forgot to mention. Dan and I were talking about what kind of limit switch shut off the slide drive motor at the ends of it's movement. I looked for some sort of limit switch on the motor or gear box and couldn't find any. I connected a volt meter to the motor and watched the meter while I closed the slide to the stop, this is where the bending was going on. When the slide hit the stop, there was a click from back in the generator opening and the voltage dropped to zero for about 5 to 10 seconds. As I had no one to operate the switch while I hunted down the devise, I will assume it may be an automatic reset circuit breaker.
