Quoted from nicoga3000:
Thanks. Mine is a lot messier looking than yours, but everything seems to be in order.
I did shoot a video of my sound issues.

Also, is anyone else's magnet really loud? And do you notice your fuses popping on and off again a lot? My Balrog motor works good, but sometimes has a hard time starting. I've also managed to bump it out of place from a ball hitting it while not engaged. I imagine I just need to get in and tighten some stuff?
fuses? If your blowing ring mag fuses make sure to replace them with 5a as with mine it kept blowing them, I thought that my ring coil was going and replaced it, new one did the exact same thing, so then after some reading it turns out its fairly common and that 4a sb is slightly two low for what it draws, replaced it with a 5 and its smooth sailing my guess is maybe my mains voltage is a little high in my area.
for noise, it does make some noise, but over time coils will heat up expand and the wires will loosen up so it will be a little louder. Actually if it bothers you I wonder if wax potting would work? They do that in microphonic guitar pickups, if there is a higher temp wax one could use..
For balrog, if hes sticking/jerking it probably means your gearbox is going, in my old lotr this happened, opened it up and one of the gears teeth were worn down, happily a new gearbox is only 100, smooth as silk after!
