Removing Oyama TO fan
Curious problem: I'm disassembling an Oyama TO to explore deactivating the thermostat and stop cycling This is a mechanical setup with two dials, no bulbs. It looks. like I need to remove the fan to get at the thermostat, wherever it is, but I can't seem to move the nut that holds the fan in place. Any suggestions? I think it's 8 mm but won't budge. Any advice welcomed, KKTO build is moving slowly,
geezrmike attached the following image:

This is the best best kept secret that drive me mad when I found the reason...Grin
Pure sorcery !!! The screw is reversed, not normal ! Roflmao
Reason being to not unscrew itself due to motor rotation... Grin
Wondering why not simply reversing motor rotation instead... is simpler to do, imo, instead performing a custom thread of the motor shaft...
That is worth a laugh or two - thanks, I wondered if that was possible. Will explore further this evening.
Just like a counter shaft nut on a motorcycle.
Always learning
