Default Motor break-in!


I too have read (maybe in a Magazine) the RE-cut the Com after break-in thing somewhere, so 'holycow' is not just making this up on his own. I tried it once or twice based on that article, and saw no performance benefits in doing so.

Using a sharp Lathe Bit, then a few minutes of break-in at low voltage (3-4v) with no load, Should have little effect on Com concentricity (trueness), in my opinion.
