Physical Build Progress

Looking pretty good now, and it feels solid.  Started wiring, and I should be done around Wednesday.  The biggest challenge was getting the tie rod drag links and ends.  There’s no better way to translate this kind of motion though.Image

    What is the part# or torque rating/rom of the KMG gear motors?

  2. Torque rating for this particular motor is 160 oz/in at 19rpm. Rating is 23rpm, and it runs a touch faster than that at 12.4VDC no load (which is where my battery hangs out) I don’t know the actual stall torque, but you need to keep the overhung load at or below 100lbs when you get further than .75″ away from the output boss. I’m violating most of those rules in this build.
