Default and a little something on the drive belt

Also got this from Brian Cherry via email.

Another thing worth finding out about is how to fuse 1/4" mylar leadout tape it doesn't come apart. It makes the best belt and delivers the full stability of the motor. All the methods I've tried drift apart after a couple weeks 24/7 running. Second best is fused nylon thread if someone can do it. You could use 2 of them for a pretty good result.

Default And this from the Teres site..

Quote:
A precision aluminum pulley was custom machined for the Teres as off the shelf pulleys are generally not of sufficient quality for this application. The pulley is superbly concentric with a run-out spec of less than two ten-thousandths. To retain the near perfect concentricity the pulley has a friction fit on the shaft and no set-screw is used.
Who knows where Teres got theirs made ?

Cheers
Because the DC motor torque increases when it slows down it can turn virtually any platter. The greatest effect of extra platter mass is that the run up time increases - if you went to a platter of more than 10 kg you might be waiting a couple of minutes for it to run up to speed.

BTW from what I've seen of Vinyl Addict's work if anyone can make the pulley properly he can.

Also from an email by Brian Cherry.

One point about pulley material: it is important! I had samples of brass, aluminum and delrin made up.
The Delrin is easy to press fit and use but compared to the metal pulleys was lacking.
The aluminum was good in that it is very light so any run out creates less vibration at the motor. However it rings and does affect the sound.
Brass is deadest and sounds the best. Only problem is a little bit of run out can be noticed as vibration on the motor due to its higher mass. However it does make it easy to sort out the unacceptable pulleys.

Sounds good. But would you like to make 25 or so pulley's Vinyl Addict?

Put me for the "deluxe version" of the Pcb + pulley + motor (is it the Maxon 110191?)

Thanks

Default am I too late

Hi All
am I too late to join this?

but before I send any money can I check some things.
am trying to upgradee my PTTOO using the ironless motor from permotec (rs no - 432-9765 ) but have been using a very simple variable voltage circuit.
will this kit work with this motor?

thanks
Rob

In the beginning they did press fit the pulleys but have also used set screws because I read a thread somewhere recently that stated that. I don't know what they currently use.
Press fitting or line to line fit may offer a very slight benefit in concentricity over a snug fit with set screws but if carefully made there should be no problem.
Anytime I make pulleys I bore the hole which is a bit of a challenge since it is only slightly under 3mm diameter but that yields the best concentricity results.
Keep in mind too that there is already 0.1mm - 0.2mm axial play on the shaft from the factory. Maxon specs a force of 80N for press fits.
