For the motor mount and wheels: (A tip for the people who are interested in cheaper mounts.)
I got a lot of aluminium at home, but i want a sturdy mount, that’s why i am going with 8mm thickness atleast. My X-Carve will not be-able to cut this i think or very slow. I will also get custom mounts like these i absolutely loved the 6x6 design and will put these on the back with front-wheel drive. And what i mean by making custom rims for the flywheels is this. These will be made on the lathe and later on with the CNC. I went to some companies to ask how much this would could me to do. They were all between $400-$700. I understand they have to config all the machines and stuff which makes it this expensive. But i though this can be done cheaper!
How i solved this is, i went to my local schools and one of them has tech classes and they have all kind of crazy machines. What i did is i went in and asked nicely how much it would cost if they could CNC the mounts for me if delivered the material and drawings myself.
What do you think ? FREE. He told me he would make it a lesson for the kids there so they could understand the machines more and so he had some more materials for teaching. I was so happy when i heared this. But ofcourse i’m not going to be a jerk and let him actually do it free. Will definitely buy them a gift of some sort.
