i took a picture of the lathe tool i used to cut the wheels, the tool has two tip cut on it, the tip on the left can cut the front profile of the wheel, the grooving tool can be used to cut the inner axle and part it off,
the two points are 10 mm apart in x-y so that the digital read-outs don't have to be reset.
the tool was cut on a wire cutter adding the correct clearence on the lathe tool.
3rd picture is the frames with the ABS spaces added
a long time i know, anyhow i have started to remake the new design,
i have a number of parts i have been making in the next few post.
first picture is the wheels, i turned these in one operation, i made a tool on a wire cutter edm,
it had two points so i could cut the front and back in one set up.
hi all, i have been doing some drawings lately. I have found some better motors and gears. This will improve running.
there both 12v and allow room for a flywheel. The garratt drawing is new, it is based on the NA mech parameters. As there is starting to be more wheels here i am tempted to get them made outside by an engineering firm. The garrets drawing is not finished, but most of the overall structure is done.
