Hi Mark and superhkm,

Mark,
Fortunately, it doesn't appear that the shaft is bent. It spins freely and without any noise, so I am not really concerned about being able to make it do what I want. You are correct that the terminals slip fit onto a brush post. My issue is that the terminal broke off taking with it one side of the slip fit portion. So, now there are only 3 of the 4 sides holding it in place. I think I am going to need to solder directly to the brush post to get a solid connection. Not the end of the world, but not what you want to do to a new motor.

superhkm,
PM me and lets figure out what, if anything, is reasonable. I don't want this to have to come out of your pocket. I know how much effort goes into making a GB happen.

DaveM

What do you think about using a kind of superegulators (Jung style) instead of the battery?

Why ask? Just do it and tell us what you find.

The circuit itself is an adjustable series CCS / shunt reg so it probably won't make much difference but you'll never know until you try it.

Just as a progress report. We have the program done and are waiting for time on the machine. I believe it is time that people start sending me their addresses and info.

Bas Hornman, are you still up for doing a Euro distribution?

So, Please Personal message me with you name, address, quantity of pulleys.

I think that Paypal will work the best for me, but I am open to other methods if necessary.

I think I am going to stick with $10 per pulley plus shipping. If there is any profit after fairly compensating my place of work, I will make it a donation to DIYAudio.

Just a little tease. One pulley is done. All of the pulleys are not done yet only one. I need to clean up the tops of them from where the lathe left a little nub. It appears that we have a total of 39 pulleys that are nice and tight. I also have 5 that were setup parts that are a bit looser fit than the others. These could be used by people with the ability to tap them and use a couple set screws to locate the pulley. Our initial list was for 40 pulleys. So..... at this point I think we need to make this a first come first served situation. If you have not PM'd me, get on it.

For those who wanted to increase their quantity, I think we will wait until all those who initially responded have a chance to actually claim their pulley.

So, things went fine with the machining. But there was one bump in the road. The general manager walked through the shop as the parts were being run and asked "what are those?" Ooops!!! I felt like a kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar. It appears that we now may need to pay the shop a few more pennies once she gets done with figuring shop rates and blah de blah. I think we will be OK, but I may need to collect a dollar or two more per pulley to make the GM happy. We will see.

I will try and get the ends finished as soon as I can.

Hi Dave,

I forgot to respond. I'm still up for helping to distribute around europe.

I don't understand the "unaccounted" heading? Did we have to send a payment at one time? Must have missed it.

Regards,
Bas

Bas,

You are fine and have not missed a payment date. I just meant those who have replied with emails to me are "accounted for". That is all. I am trying to get a complete list of real names, emails and addresses so I can try and get this all organized.

Dave,
The pulley looks great! I am unable to access your PM, so just wanted to let you know I would still like 1 pulley.
Thanks,
Sean
