so some progress

http://www.vapourforge.com/jake/rw/bots/beetle/shredder/windings_perspective.jpg

the motor is now "mounted" to the bot,
we drilled out the original mounting because it was too high and we made a new one that's part of the bot itself. Also meant we don't need to worry about mounting screws ;->


http://www.vapourforge.com/jake/rw/bots/beetle/shredder/windings_top.jpg
you can see the windings running out through the trench into the little void there.

you can see the lower bearing mount here.
I got a pack of 10 bearings from vxb, but they seem kinda sloppy.
also a pack of 50 e clips from CBC

Nice work! How did you get the original aluminium core out of the laminations without disturbing them? I would like to try that with an HK motor I have, but there doesn't seem to be any place to grip the laminations while puching out the centre tube.

@nick just chucked it in the lathe then drilled it out.
@Jaemus yeah, lots of Al ;->

Hopefully the outer ring should weigh about 1kg

unfortunatly it looks like it'll max out at probably 1000RPM so i might need to stick an extra cell in it

1kg outer shell + 112 grams inner frame = 248g for all the guts?

Thanks for the info - too bad my lathe is way too small to try that trick on the featherweight motor I want to use Sad. Might have to try it out on something smaller.
