Neat-o. Was the motor free too? Where'd you get it? Who did the rebuild & what was done?
Looking forward to watching the progress.
Nope, got the motor for $200 (I'll post a table with my costs so far and a running total as I spend more on it). Got it from a forklift wrecker. I rebuilt it myself with new bearings and a 10 degree brush advancement. The comm and brushes are still fine, so I didn't touch those. Media blasted and repainted the case with polyurethane enamel (light gray).
I'm getting the NiCad cells for free from the airline I work at. They are "unservicable" cells, which means that they're no longer fit for use on aircraft, but so far all (11) of them seem to be just fine for my purposes.
You scored free SAFT NiCDs?
I H8 you so much right now....
