We've all faced those rush jobs, where a customer is desperate to get his motor back faster than humanly possible. It is our nature to try to do the impossible - that's why we are in this business. We enjoy a challenge and the opportunity to help people. Turning a motor around quickly, when a customer is in need, is rewarding. One of the most time-consuming steps - drying the windings after they have been cleaned - can be frustratingly slow when an anxious customer is calling.

This procedure will help in determining how long a bake cycle is really necessary. This saves time and energy - both of which cost money.
