current sensing resistor

My examples were identical each time.

I wasn't adding "loads" on the neg. The reason it is called a current
sensing resistor
and can be a 0.25 ohm resistor for example is because
it is only really there to be used for measuring what current is moving
pass there and is NOT acting as any significant load itself. Again, it is for
measurement and is not about being a load itself.

If you have a resistor there, you can measure what a solid state oscillator
or an SG is drawing from the input battery. If it is an SG, the wheel is
NOT the only work being done.
