    Tony @ TNT,

    There is a reason I DON'T use a sewing machine motor for tire grinders - the speed is way too high unless you rein it in with a speed control. If the tire is expanding from high RPM,...

    Honestly,

    I don't KNOW a Chinaman & chicken story, but perhaps Mike has it confused with the circle track driver & the chipmunk. I told him that one for sure, along with the Eskimo women & the...

    Gary,

    That particular machine has a 100 grit 8" aluminum oxide stone. The profile is hand cut with a series of diamond tools. When close, you grind a lot of popsicle sticks to visualize the...

    Stevie,

    I agree with you man, ease up on the rant. The problem is that nobody ever made a GOOD molded shunt brush for slot racing. The ones I recall were marketed by Champion: The shunt was half...

    Alan,

    James,

    I've had a lot of tire making experiences over the years, and I'm not talking a few sets to go racing with, but rather producing them on a commercial scale.

    Fred,

    I can't see any reason that is brand design specific. You will still have copper left on the comms at .190" dia, and a bit MORE overlap. Push start armatures in my experience are open...

    Ed,

    If you buy an ounce, and only use it for endbell bearings, 9/10 of it will perish in the bottle.

    Thats OK Tracy,

    I can expand on the subject some. Original specs for a C can call for .835", and magnets were pegged at .150" thick, thus yeilding a .535" hole. Mura magnets (plain, red dot or...

    Michael,

    This will vary depending on which sanding drum you have, which rubber you're cutting, and the depth of cut. It is best if you use a variable power supply, so you can keep the Hudy drive...

    BV 1956,

    Read again carefully. The red dot is the NEGATIVE magnet side, and most of us consider south = negative. This is only true in the Falcon 7 or hawk 6. A D or C can will only exhibit this...

    Mic,

    Yes, such a thing would spool up quicker, but at a small loss in total power. This is a case, since you aren't honing the magnets for a larger arm, that the only changes are to a larger gap...

    Mike,

    I would guess the 95% tin and 5% antimony ones that do better melted, likely by Slick 7.

    SR, good choice of benchtop power tool. What do you NOT share with Hermanator?
