Very nice! Wher’d you get your sensor at?
China.... via Amazon.
As good a place as any for this I suppose... @gggGary came all the way to KC to deliver some rotors.
Well dang! There’s a breakfast I would’ve liked to been at. A couple of my favorite people.
That Gary sure gets around!
Hot Dang ! About time you two got serious? (Lol) about this rotor thing .
Great news for everybody !
Very cool piccy! Can’t wait for those rotors Jim!
Hey - you two guys dress like Red Green!
1100 miles round trip in the van in one day 4AM to 10:30 PM, not a prob for a bud like Jim, sides I got to meet his lovely wife Sue.
S'matter Pete don't you know midwest fashion rules? Note the guy behind us also.
What.. no selfie with duck lips!!
Ha! I own a few plaid flannel shirts. But sadly no chainsaws or snow blowers. Maybe I’m not a true midwesterner. I WAS born in Iowa however. Would that give me a pass?
RE the rotor. I have seen recently on Allen Milyard’s Fbook Page, on his latest build a velocette V twin he used, and excuse if I get the spelling wrong, Neodynemium magnets to replace the coil on the rotor. Of course this then makes the whole issue a PMA, quite why he has done this is down to him.
For those of you with a technical bent, his web site and Fbook Page are well worth a look.
Furthermore this site demonstrates the art of ingenuity is alive and well.
Your a true midwesterner if you have a snowblower motor powered chainsaw and and chainsaw powered snow blower.
Think I'm kidding?
I don't own any flannel....I'm getting some! I'm starting to get gray hair too! Haha!
So... looks like the final configuration will be 450 turns of 22ga. That still fits (barely) into the rotor and comes out at 5.1ohms.
I'm already looking for my bubble wrap and packaging tape . Kansas City eh ?
You are going to be quite popular JimD54
Band of Brothers
I like it.
Do they make you eat out of the skillet there?
Those specs look good to me Jim - have at it!
....and yes Gary - I've got lots of plaid too. My many daughters refer to it as my Uniform-of-the-Day for weekends in the DCW.
I have a collection of Pendelton wool shirts in plaid, that are my main winter wear. Tend to make you look more like a farmer than a small town gentleman on holiday though.
Prolly should'a put the question here instead of starting another thread.
Here's a link to the discussion on crank taper for some more of the tooling....
