It could cover:
Material usage, specifications etc.
Machine & hand tools.
Working with composites.

Good idea. Added.liveforphysics wrote:Include a section on connector styles.
The idea is to have one extra forum for general technology - all the items in the list... This would help to keep techniques from getting lost in vehicle specific forums.Dauntless wrote: Perhaps you feel something is being missed. Casting/Molding merely pops up from time to time, but since not much is said I don't see why it would have it's own group.

Many of the people who come here don't know V/R=I or that I*V=W. And many don't know how to do basic troubleshooting.

I personally think if we are going to add a new sub forum, one for trouble shooting/ help needed threads would serve a better purpose. As it is now it's a bit confusing where to post if your bike isn't functioning properly. I mean dose it go in the general bike forum cause its an e-bike, or does it go in the technical forum cause the answer to your problem in a technical one, or does it go in the battery forum because it might be battery related. Having one set place for problems would make the whole process a lot more stream lined.

BTW how do you plan to restrict it to "clever techniques" ?

If you want to ask "why is my hub motor making a noise?", you'd ask it on Ebikes Technical. If you wanted to ask about or detail a modification with theoretical considerations you might post in the Motor Technology section.
