Love the idea of making your own tools to do a job that previous tools don't or can't do. Feeling the excitement, gentlemen. Love your work, keep it up!
bobwatters - 2 mĂ„neder siden
I'm no hammer expert but I'm pretty sure by the way they pulled the pulley off that gear is WAY too loose; the only thing turning that gear is the key. They should have heat up the piece that holds the gear so it would slide on the shaft snugly. It should be an interference fit with the key there just to stop it from slipping, especially with the continued vibrations that machine is going to see.

Ask Matt if he knows the Britton's (Zach, Holly, Ian, Adria, Ellie and Elias)? Small world, they live in Tuolumne. I live down in Cody, WY and we visit them several times a year. Always end up in Twain Harte. My sister used to teach at the Mother Load. Cheers!

Gonna need a bigger pry bar
Clément Busschaert
ClĂ©ment Busschaert - 2 mĂ„neder siden
hi hello. Google can't help me with this question.
What are those units you mention about the shaft and the boring bar? I hear "thaw" but I can't find a definition for this that makes sense as a unit. Auto-generated subtitles print "thousand".
It wouldn't make sense that it's "thousandth" (the measure was 0.020 when you said "two [thaw?]")...
I don't even know how to spell that word, so googling it is hard.

Did you check the gear lash to make sure the space between the gears is correct to prevent teeth sheering?
Defyreality13 - 3 mĂ„neder siden
So, did you guys test the motor prior to putting all that work into getting the gear on it, lining it up, putting everything back together. or just Hoped real hard :) because i've been there, where i should have tested something, but was just in the zone and trucking thru the work or assumed everything would be fine. sometimes it works out, sometimes you made more work for yourself. nice to see it fired up, and it sounds amazing.

You should be able to get that piece within 0.001 in school our first project we needed to get a rod of hot rolled steel (sometimes 0.020 of variation) within 0.001 it just takes time and patience and a gentle hand
