What: "Manual machine tool duty for a motor is like embassy duty for a Marine. Most of the time all that' required is a presence and authority. Once in a while real work is called for and a heavy cut is taken (or a mob quelled) and that's were a motor or a marine earns its keep. This is low duty cycle. Many factors contribute to the need for external cooling and lower than name plate RPM is only one. Other factors motivating a decision to add a fan are high duty cycle, high ambient temperature, nearby sources of radiant heat, lack of local air circulation, low line voltage, frequent momeentary overload, dust infiltration and accumulation, and probably more that I can't flog from my morning brain."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
