My father and me have been working on this today(all the hardwork itself was made by my father haha). It was all “handmade” since we don’t have a lathe or a high speed drill. We used a low speed drill, a rasp, sanpaper, some tools we had at home and an electric saw. It was made from a 58mm cilinder of beech wood. I have not weighted it yet but it is 58mm×37mm(we wanted to use the “golden ratio”) and about 3mm gap. Tomorrow we will be working on the finish:)
I’d like to see a short clip of this in action.
I might record some. It has a good response. However you can make it sleep some seconds and then return it with a good amount of power on it. I’ve been 30 minutes doing 0A so I can’t tell if it is that good haha
Nice work!! How much does it weigh?
Just weighted it and its about 65g. Isnt that too heavy?I think we’ll try to get a few grams out. Also, how much is a “normal” axle diameter?I think mine is slightly thick
I think 1/4" or slightly less is the usual? Not sure though.
Anyhow, see if you can do a trapeze/brother stall on it, that’s a great starter 0a trick to work on.
Yeah. I can do a normal 1A trapeze on it, and a trapeze stall if I do it while winding. I’m a starter at 0A so I cant tell if it is good or not haha.
I think it really just depends.
I like em around 50 grams, but if it plays good you’re fine!
I think it is too powerful haha!Definitely I’ll try to substract a few grams to 55-60 if I can
