Default Deans Speed Jig Question

I purchased a speed jig and have been usingit to make very nice 2000 packs. Today I bought some new 3000s and went to build them, no go!! They do not fit into the jig. I ended up filing the edges of the jig away some to allow them to fit.

Has anybody else had this problem, or did I buy the wrong jig for 3000s??

i have this jig and i think the last ttime i made 3000s with it i didnt have much of a problem, but i think i do remember it being a pretty tight fit though, not enough to have to file anything.

Hmmm looks like I lucked out. These things WOULD NOT fit in even tight. They are tight now after I filed the thing down.

They are Team Corally Pro Sanyo High Voltage 3000.

OK thanks guys!

i think the sanyo nimhs are slightly bigger in diameter than the panasonic smh. the sanyos are also a tight fit when im using the jig, compared to the smh's which fit easily.

AMGracer, I know what you are talking about, I had to take a dremel to my deans jig in order to build some Sanyo 3000HV packs. I beleive the jig is okay for the SMH's but the HV's a slightly larger. Dean's is aware of this issue an has updated their jig so that the new Sanyo 3000HV's will fit, you just have the older version.

Ahhhhh I thought it could not just be me . Do you know of a new part number or how to tell the new jig?

My 3000 cells fit in the old jig, but you have to use some force.

I found out about the update a couple months ago, bummer!

That's cool to know. I also had that same problem as some of you guys did with the fit of Sanyo 3000 cells. Have they released an updated version? How would we tell from the old one versus the new one?

Okay, the new version states that the new Sanyo 3000HV will fit for this jig. I'm sure their site will tell you this also but their new site is under contruction.

Didn't you get one that has a foam block that you stick on one end of the jig? The Jig should be big enough for any 6 cell batteries and the foam is to snug the pack up.

Both the old & new models have the foam in one end, the new version is a bit bigger width ways as the Sanyo 3000's are slightly longer than other cells.

I got it from Dave Guyatt, he has a mobile shop and attends Wynum & Meakin Park race meetings, about $30, I think.
