i have a testicle question for you... 

I'm building some new conveyors and s**t at work, and I have to put a couple of extra motors/gearboxes in. Can I put more than one motor on one contactor and overload, or is that a no no?

can be done but generally for best protection its one to one.... or one contactor feeding 2 overloads   if they need to run at the same time that is

Cheers for that. I'm trying to keep costs down, and am trying to avoid the sparky bill if possible. They are only very small motors, I think .18 kw? I was just going to hook them up in parallel with the existing ones.

Even small motors need protection.... But its your call if you hook one up to the other in theory the overload will still work but not as fast if there is a problem
