For your pleasure,
Here is a dxf of some stator configs utilizing standard NEO's & DOM steel for the flux cans.
I guess i'll put this here at the risk of duplication when I actually make time to finish the motor prototyping project.
I bought a stock of .008"t shim stock to make laminations & planned on insulateing them with a thin nomex sheet between each lam. The steel is (1080 low carbon) no where near real lamination stock but the only thing in my price & availability range.
After considering my options, I decided photo etching was the only reasonable way a guy in his basment could pull off making a batch of perfect laminations. I Have the screenprint that nests a 3" & a 5" motor in a single pc of stock.
but my shim stock was rolled...I cut it to size on a paper cutter but it has a permanent "cup" in the stock that needs to be relaxed before I can start the printing proccess. (i'll clamp the whole stack between 2 plates & take it to red heat & let it cool slowly to unstress the steel)
Around the new year I purchased the latest Pulsed EDM board from Ben Flemming. Once I have EDM capability it will be a walk in the park to cut proper punch dies for MASS PRODUCTION
Any one have any idea on what it would take to make a nice Laser for a bench top cnc ?(Co2 60+ watts?) I searched a little one night, but A clear example W/enough documentaion for me to plagerize didn't apeare....havn't got back to that one yet.
let the conversation continue.
