there are more things that 1 can do, but this was a quick build because I like the way the motor worked!

If I really want to make it sweeter, I would add the RTHO gears!!

thanks folks!,

Rick

I was trying to think of where to buy lapping slurry, when I thought about making my own, that would let determine the thickness

ie.. thinner = less motor strain but longer lap in time, thicker is faster lap in, warmer arm

I tried to fine a nice balance.
the easy way is to buy RTHO gears!!

I build a dummy arm shaft use a Dremel and lap my gears without the actual arm in place. No chance of burning up that arm.

Thanks Mike, lots of great info in those clips that can also be applied for building/tuning outside of fray.

Cheers,
Michael.

well life sucks! :(

I the arm died!! the speed dropped from the 1.6 on the dyno to 1.38 max

WTF
after lot of time trying to figures it out, I finally ohmed it!

25, 25, 51

I am impressed that it does the 1.38 on the dyno with them numbers!
I have paid for custom built cars that were slower

One of the poles blew a wire (the one that reads 51). Sometimes it can be repaired. If its the last wind or one of the last winds that broke, it can be unrolled and resoldered. I've repaired lots of 'em that had this happen.

Modern alternatives to Neolithic techniques

I also own many hammers and bludgeon with them frequently.

For those of you viewers who would prefer a more evolved, and precision assembly method; a common table top drill press can easliy be rigged for squeezing any number of slotcar things together and pushing them apart.

For example> Put a nail set in the chuck and rotate the deck away from the open center bore. You can squeeze rivets tight for hours on end and never bludgeon a single hapless rivet.

....how about using the nail set in the drill press to bloat the idler gear boss on T-jet gear plates?

...or substitute a common short drift in the chuck and use a stepped oak block with a hole in it for pressing axles, wheels and whatnot.

I like the baby drill press because you can chuck up darn near any cylindrical tool that doesnt exceed the chucks working diameter and roll with it...

...except hammers....of course :freak:
