Forum layout

I'm just wondering, if I'm the only one that liked the green layout better. :geek:

Re: Wheel for Lumia

I have the opportunity to buy a LPM with a Ophir sensor so my Lumia project is on hold. I have found a gear set and frame parts to build my Lumia. Don't get the double post above. Did not mean to do it.

Re: Wheel for Lumia

I like the worm gear motor. I have some robot pieces that I can add to and setup a system that will give me 8-RPH or less. I'm going to get a gear kit that has 4 worm gear sets in it. I think it will work, it just will look like the gear box from hell, with the rotation axis going 90 DEG 5 times. Th...

Re: Wheel for Lumia

Thanks for the info guys I will have to see what I can come up with as far as mounting goes. can't really do much in the way of fabrication where I live.
I will try the PWM motor control and start working on a pulley and belt system.
Thanks again

Re: Wheel for Lumia

I can get my motor down to .05rpm any slower and it gets jumpy. The output shaft is offset so I can get about 5mm overhang. Just barely got the two beams on the disk. I glued a magnet onto the disk and it works fine. Soon I will epoxy a ring magnet onto the shaft and then a disk magnet on the glass ...

Re: Wheel for Lumia

Got my wheel today, all 40mm of it. Only problem is the motor is 35mm so not much room to play with. But as I now know of Delphi glass, Thanks Bob, I'll be getting some of their plate and a cutter to make discs. I like the magnet epoxy idea and will be using that method. Thanks to all for your help,...

Re: Wheel for Lumia

Draco. I used this to make templates to find the center of a disc. Trace the disc on a piece of paper and cut it out, a razor works well for this. Next fold it in half then fold it again. Be sure to keep the folds even. Next cut the very tip, no more than 1mm of the tip off with scissors. When you u...

Re: Wheel for Lumia

The motor in your link is much like the one I plan to use. It should get down to .5 RPM running it at 4 volts. I have been playing with motors and I think I can get what I want with the motor I'm getting. At this point. Thank you Bob for all your help. I see much more Lumia down the road for me, I'm...
