110V Buzzer

I need a simple 110V low current buzzer.  Not some 120Db claxon.  Just loud  
enough to remind me to unlock the spindle brake on a mill before I hit the  
start button.  I could add a second relay trigger by or parallel to the one  
that activates the brake solenoid, but the last thing I want is more junk  
dangling inside the control cabinet.  A low current modest volume buzzer  
tied in parallel with the brake solenoid valve would be the easy answer.  
Originally I had the brake control switch tied in with the emergency stop,  
but I found that caused other problems like not being able to jog the  
machine and losing the job elapsed time clock on the controller.

Any suggestions.  I know.  I know.  Do it the more complicated way.  Its  
probably cheaper to since I have power supplies, relays, and buzzers just  
laying around for low voltage stuff.

I have considered a light bulb, but I'm not sure that's annoying enough to  
keep me from hitting start before I release the brake.  An interlock switch  
doesn't work either because I need to be able to jog the machine with the  
brake locked sometimes.


Hi Guys,
How's it going?

P.S.  I am really getting to enjoy DIN rail mounted components.  SO much  
easier than looking for a place to shoot some screw in an alarm box.

Welcome back Bob,

I am guessing that you need a little help from outside sources to  
remember what to do before you break something.  BTW this will not get  
easier as you age.  Believe me it will only get worser.

I did a quick check on eBay but the part numbers are available elsewhere  
as well.

If I understand right then one of following may do the trick.  One may  
OVER DO it but I will leave that up to you to decide.  :-)

I don't think I ever had any of that stuff laying around (thank goodness),
but I bet Kurt over at KC has some.  He rivals me for horded junk.  Well
actually my junk has gone way down I've thrown so much away in the last year
or so.  I actually have a couple empty shelves in the shop now.  Doesn't
mean there isn't anything laying on the floor, but now I have less excuse
for leaving it there.  LOL.

Maybe I was just looking for an excuse to chat with youse gouyes.  I did the  
old Ebay look see but didn't see the same answer you did.  My first results  
were 120Db sounders.  Yuck.

I work on these machines all the time.  Probably know about them than some  
of the MFGs.  Swapped out a servo control yesterday, and when I got done  
tuning the axis was smoother, faster, and had better acceleration than the  
stock setup.  Then I retuned the other servo controllers on the machine for  
similar results.

Right now I am looking for a vise with a huge opening and a small footprint  
for a machine so I can use the full working envelope of the machine.  Sigh.  
Looks like I am going to have to make one.  One more reason to buy another  
piece of equipment.  Still haven't ponied up for a surface grinder.  I need  
a bigger bandsaw first.  It never ends....  Thank goodness.  I'm having so  
many more good days now.
