    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? :geek:

    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?

    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.

    Those specs look good to me Jim - have at it! :rock:

    ....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. :rolleyes:
    Here's a link to the discussion on crank taper for some more of the tooling....
