Nicknamed "the pig" due to its ridiculous size and weight, this was the next project to be given attention.
I was going to build it as a 12...but haven't owned a 10 in ages, so big as 10s a nice start
Lazar opti 1533d motor bored out to 3.36"... triple 1" slug, 1" top plate
10 ti basket
8.5" HDD spiders, either 2 or 3
plane dust cap
12" basket ^
got my 10 basket, mocked up before top plate arrived
Clean the glue off
top plate back from bumpinbuick milled and bored
Building my shim.. single cardboard tube (thick wall ) split, then patched solid to the poles OD.
Added a layer of stiff cardboard to take up most of the gaps room... then wrapped in layers of tape (1", same as top plate) to get the gap tight
Not seen, didn't take pictures...mark where the top plate will lines up with the shim, take the shim off the pole and insert it into the top plate the same as it would be removed.. I attach stoppers to keep the shim from sliding down through the plate...then apply glue to both surfaces
The shims long enough that it slides onto the pole without pulling the plate...very helpful.. then slide it down holding steady and....
Bammmm... attached....leave the shim in until its fully cures, the plate could always creep sideways and mess up the gap
beautiful glue bead
Parts should be here soon and ill update the rest...
Note - although there are alternative ways to put a top plate back on a motor, this method works well for me... hasn't me failed yet
