Whoa! I'm the only member on-line...

Well, I guess I'll take the opportunity to tell an off-color joke... A man and woman were in their living room and she was throwing peanuts into the air and he was catching them in his mouth. Their daughter and her boyfriend walked in and since being distracted the man turned his head. A peanut land...

I had a decent Weller standalone iron, I believe this one, for years: https://www.amazon.ca/Weller-WP35-35-Watt-Professional-Soldering/...

Re: Thinking about dyno's for brushed motors

I have been using that rpm meter on my Le mans motors for awhile now. It works good but reads some odd #s sometimes as it jumps around...eventually showing actual rpm So I ordered that same rpm meter and also have a nice multimeter.

Re: Thinking about dyno's for brushed motors

I'm still collecting stuff but this is what I come up with to attach the reflective tape to. I took a smaller spur gear that I had laying around and opened it up just enough for a pinion to fit snugly. I haven't glued it together yet, but I spun it up on a 15T modified. It spun true, without any vib...

Re: Thinking about dyno's for brushed motors

Now it's my turn to share how I'm building my motor dyno. A little late to the party, but I got to borrow from some of your guys' great ideas. :mrgreen: The trickiest part is finding a way to attach something to the motor shaft.

Re: So what did you get in the post today ???

I just might have a new problem/addiction on my hands. Good thing the wife only sees about less than half of packages left at the front door. I work from home so even if she's home I usually can ninja my way to the mailbox and smuggle goods to the basement before she notices anything... Lol that's ...
