No more of this page 2 crap. lol.
I read the stuff about the atlatls and found it quite interesting/amusing. The next morning in my english class (which was moved to another room due to our teacher not being there), I saw a picture on the wall which looked quite familiar. The teacher had a picture of an atlatl on the wall. I started laughing for a minute and my friends were all making faces like this: lol. And when I explained they continued with the creepy faces... One can learn so much from this thread and how it might pertain to everyday situations. lol.

Default chewing up spur

When using a 128 spur and a 64pitch pinion, ever have the problem of the two not lining up exactly square and routinely chewing up the spur.

Just so you guys know, Skuba's off to Germany to assist Mr. Kinwald. I think he's back in a week or so. Hopefully he can get on the internet and keep us amused.

GO SKUBA

imjonah-Use patience when setting gear mesh with 64 pitch gears. Set it so that there is just the smallest amount of play between the spur and the pinion; use your thumb to rotate the spur to check the gear mesh at another spot along the circumference of the gear. Be sure that the gear mesh is not too tight or too loose along those other points. Also, be sure you firmly tighten your motor clamp, as it is possible for your gear mesh to change from an impact, or from the torque of acceleration/braking.

Be sure you are using quality gears. No pinion gears or spur gears are perfectly round. Generally speaking, 'cut' or machined gears will have tighter production tolerances than molded gears, but are more expensive.

Default YO YO YO!

Hey all!!

Just arrived in Germany...wish I could read/speak German... oh well

I will try to keep you guys informed on what's going on over here... anyone want me to bring anything back for them...aside from hot Euro Chicks? ( I am keeping them all)

RE: gear mesh question: Mr. J. type has answered the question sufficiently... sometimes pinion gears are "bad" and can cause premature wearing on your spur gear... you might want to pick up a new pinion gear to be safe.

um.... ASK SOME QUESTIONS GUYS!!!
