Thanks for the strokes Enpro.
I have the 3220 but I am doing some work to get things ready for more power.
One of the things I have been meaning to do is make a third bearing support
for the 250 chain drive sprocket. As you can see it has a spud sticking out for
It is threaded into a 1/2" shaft but is just dangling out there without support,
so I made this support with a 6 mm bearing pressed into it.
I also have had an issue with the power pole arming switch melting down. They
are good in that when they make contact and spark, that is not the surfaces that
make contact when they are completely plugged in. The contact area when they
are plugged in is not very large and it creates a source of resistance and gets hot
and melts. the biggest size wire you can use to slid in the connector is 14 gauge.
I think that is pretty wimpy so my solution is to use 2 switches in parallel.
I am also trying to clean up the wiring and use 10 gauge and not put the final
flow of power through a deans connector but a high capacity connector. I chose
a CC 8 mm barrel connector because I think I can solder 3 wires into one connector.
There is enough room. Haven't tried it yet, but I did get the shunt and extra capacitor
I still need to make all the solder connections to plug to the CA. That and cut the motor
shaft to size and add connector to the motor and install and that is about it. Getting close.
