H-Can #4 is ready for duty.  Samiam gifted me a set of solid neos from some throwaway motor, so I fabbed-up a set of shims for even more mag-grab, and epoxied the whole stinkin' mess into the can.  After that, I prepped up one of those nifty peachy keen JK aluminum end bells and then built me a .350" long stack/shaft.  This could be fun!

Hi John,

 

Flat trajectory 338 Magnum drag motor...

 

 

Thanks,

g

We're thinking along the same general line here Geary.  Being something of a traditionalist, I was leaning more towards a .308.  ;)  With a scope, a bipod and a sandbag, I'm sure it would get the job done.  :D

Yes the 308 would get er done...

 

I will go down to a 300 Winchester Magnum for this motor, still packs quite a punch.

I'm thinking of a hot wind here.  Even if it limits it to drag use, it seems appropriate.  I guess I could do something milder like a #29 or even a #30 that some "outlaw" class somewhere might allow also!?

A 26-25 wind would be easier on the fingers than a 24...

 

This is getting into scary territory.

Well, if it were going into a drag car, a #24 shouldn't be any harder on the fingers than a #25 Geary!

...speaking of a #24, I did a 19/24.  On such a short stack, resistance numbers are vanishingly low...no surprise there!  Some might ask..."why did you do that?".  I would answer...because I can!  :)

I call it my "Krell" armature...you know...it's going to keep drawing as much power as it needs until it melts the door, or something.

Not to go too far OT, but "Forbidden Planet" has got to be one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies like ever!  With Hollywood's propensity for reboots, remakes, sequels and prequels, it's amazing that no one has gone after this one.  I mean, "It, The Terror From Beyond Space" (another classic) is said to have been a major influence on the Alien franchise, but nobody has the stones to go after "Forbidden Planet"?  :D

Honestly, I'm glad that modern Hollywood hasnt screwed-up this true sci-fi classic. Just imagine the modern spin on this truly great story. Robbie-the-robot would be replaced by Michael Fassbender doing his android replicant thing. He and the Earl Holliman replacement Johnny Depp would be caught manufacturing psychotropic drugs to cause hilarious substance abuse comedy. Leslie Neilsen replacement Bradley Cooper would be accused of sexual harrassment of the no longer naive Anne Francis, daughter of Dr. Morbius played by Gal Gadot as a career scientific researcher who crusades for animal rights and against climate change on the otherwise barren planet. Finally, Walter Pidgeon is channeled by Paul Giamatti as an older scientist driven mad by Krell technology and his repressed gender confusion. So poignant. So timely.

Back on to the subject here, this arm just came back from balancing, and I was REALLY interested in getting this one assembled because it's one of the wildest motors I've done in a long time.  I also was a little apprehensive because of all the work that went into this thing.  I mean, if it didn't work, I wasn't in the mood for a "teachable moment".

Cutting to the chase...the motor sounds wonderful.  Yeah, it draws stupid current, but not for a #24, and it doesn't trip my power supply's circuit protection.  The motor really should get shunts, but the racer should do that the way he likes it...heavy springs, light ones, shunts..."wahtevah".  My work here is done...whew!
