Thread: my build from the start
Ah yes...if you have a VFD/Inverter rated motor... mine is c1998 1.5kW (2hp) 3-phase 1400. it'll run ok at 1600-1700... i wouldnt like to take it to higher than that... so geared up 1:2 it'll give me 3000 - 3500 at the spindle...., maybe a tad more....
all that is some good info guys thanks for all of it
now i bought some ally plate today is it a good price?
80mm x 247mm x 12mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 £4.75 GBP £4.75 GBP
103mm x 227mm x 10mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 £4.95 GBP £4.95 GBP
125mm x 185mm x 10mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 £4.50 GBP £4.50 GBP
69mm x 481mm x 10mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 £6.50 GBP £6.50 GBP
110mm x 540mm x 6mm Aluminium Plate / Sheet 1 £6.50 GBP £6.50 GBP
Subtotal: £27.20 GBP + £7.06 GBP Postage & Packing
i want to use it to mount the motors on.
I usually reckon anything better for Aluminum than about £7/kg is a good price... that first piece is 0.65kg, so £4.56 would be a good price... overall you got 3.82kg Aly for £27.20, my guide price would have been £26.77. You paid slightly over the odds on the smaller offcuts and did slightly better on the larger ones... overall, not bad.
cheers irving once again :) just wanted some ally to paly with an impulse buy :-)
brain has gone west, 3 holes centers at 35mm what is the circumference ?
help an how did you get the answer.
219.91148575128552669238503682957mm ish :)
2 x pi x r
unless iv got the wrong end of the stick
3 holes around a circle 35mm apart if that helps what is the circumference ?
Erm, surely that's just 35*3 = 105mm? I've probably got a different end of the stick...
