Good stuff, impressive considering the "rudimentary" means at your disposal. By the time you get two more done you should have manufacturing down to a tee.Are you considering some lubrication for those? 10k rpm is pretty quick and I'd hate to see that work wear out prematurely. I've seen graphite powders do an okay job for that type of box, without making too much of a mess.
Oh and I wish I could weld, cause it took 12 threaded holes to put this together. Do you know how annoying/hard it is to thread holes in steel? The bulk of the body is built from aluminum, but I built the brackets from steel, as I was afraid aluminum wouldn't be tough enough.
Hi,Perhaps a bit late for this build, but if you want threads in thin aluminum plate, you can get threaded bushings that you pop-rivet into the holes.It's just drill, pop and you have a solid, long lasting thread with minor weight gain.
