Re: Vinyl Cutting and heat transfer presses... Anyone ?

Hydrographics are cool but not the direction i'm going.. So, a 24" cutter with a stand ( that supports the media roll to keep things going in a straight line ) .. driven with a servo motor ( vs Stepper ) and software that won't go obsolete and without support in 2 weeks, seems to be what i need...

Re: Multiple batteries?

some BMS can handle it, while others can not, without telling is EXACTLY what battery model, brand, etc you have, this question will remain unanswered.

Specifics matter.

Re: What is the thinnest cutoff wheel available?

how long of a cut on what type of material ?

Zip disks on angle grinders do quick work of most jobs...

If the material is thin enough, metal shears..

Band saw if the part will fit in it.

Hack saw..

Re: Round peg.. square hole.

Yeah.... this pack has something like 8 shallow cycles on it in since June 2014.. the cells that remained over 3v should have lots of life left in them, can't let it go without at least trying..

It's going to be a tight fit but i'm determined to get it back in it's box. ...

same results here with the zippies... early death regardless of cycle count and low DOD use..

Meanwhile the turnigy one's are holding up, got some that ran hard for 2 years, got pricked and de-puffed and are still going strong 2 years after.. one's on the trike are from 2009 ! :shock:

with the controller outside the motor, heat is greatly spread out and overheating won't happen under 1000w .. :wink: ( guesstimating watts.. but confident in my guess )
