Motor shaft

Postby Ahab79 » Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:32 am

I have a pretty decent out runner motor brushless. But the drive shaft is just a bit short. I'm trying to figure out a way of extending it. Any idea's?

It's got to be black. No sherbet dip either!

Alright so I melted black and red licorice. I tried them together and separate. I'm now on my 8th motor as the rest have been ruined beyond repair. Licorice was not the answer.

I did use a spare dog bone connector and it seems to work.

Slip brass tubing over the short shaft, extending it. Slip needed extra shaft length in the projecting tubing, and glue it together with crazy glue.

You could disassemble the motor, press out the shaft, measure it up and make a new on thats the length you need, and press it back in. or use a longer shaft coupler. how much extra length do you need? If you could post a pic of the setup, ie, motor mounted in place, the shaft it's driving, the hardware you are using may be able to source something.
