I’m wanting to build my own motor mount and managed to get hold of a piece of 10mm aluminum. My plan is to make a mount consisting out of three pieces, two for the clamp plus one motor plate… pretty much like most of the other ones you can see on here.
However, I’m wondering if 10mm might be too thick for that purpose. The clamp part should be fine, I’m worried about the motor plate, though. I will be using a Turnigy SK3 6374 and a 15mm belt (don’t know the exact width of the motor pulley). Will the shaft be long enough for the 10mm plate so I can still attach the pulley properly and if so, could the space between the motor and pulley cause me some trouble? I know it’s usually smarter to have the pulley as close to the motor as possible
Making a thinner plate would take me more time, which I’d definitely like to save. Any input is appreciated…
