Thanks for verifying that.
Mine is probably the same.

Good products, lousy documentation...

My one cylinder engine can tick over fairly slowly but not, I suspect, below perhaps 20 r.p.m. Without a MUCH larger flywheel, that is!

Hi,

i received all the parts and checked their function using a breadboard.

I swung the magnet past the sensor by hand to check the display. That worked.

Tomorrow I will mount the setup on the lathe to check the accuracy of the gauge.

The 9V battery will be installed in the case. Then there is the switch for the supply voltage of the tachometer.

Excellent.
¥ou obviously read the instructions and found the correct magnet pole for triggering the display.

It is interesting to me to read the 1 and 2 star reviews on Amazon, and see that the users did not read the instructions!
Always entertaining to me to see those mistakes being made. Unnecessarily.
Glad you are making yours work.
And I look forward to seeing your final product.
