Made a bunch of changes recently which freed up a lot of time and a little bit of money, and since my job entails running cnc’s figure it was about time to build me an electric longboard. The heavyweight is quite a suitable name since without batteries it weighs 18 lbs.
First was to take apart the sk6374’s and figure out how I was going to mount these stators onto my roja hybrid hangers. Did not foresee a problem though since the hangers are cylindrical.
And as you can see, decided to put thermally conductive potting epoxy on my windings
Decided that the original flange for the larger bearing was too flimsy, and it also needed to be a little wider so I could tap larger screws thru it to later on secure the liner which slides over the can and bonds the urethane. Also the tiny little bearing on the other side just would not do, so made a new flange which fits regular 608 bearings, and beefed it up a good deal.
Had some urethane cored out for me and made some liners to bond them to. Ended up making the liners out of steel, it is a little heavier but far stronger and from what I understand thru asking about on the sphere, steel on the outside of the can helps keep the magnetism where it belongs which couldn’t hurt
And that is where it rests for now. Am making a big move out to Australia come sept 20, and will be taking this with me and getting in touch with onloop about putting a space cell underneath the deck, as well as getting jacob to set me up with a couple of vesc’s. Will keep updating this thread as everything comes together, and will take video of her maiden voyage!
