Ouch!

I haven't smoked in over a week because I'd gotten bronchitis, but I have a bowl packed to enjoy with some beers this evening. Really looking forward to a nice smoke.

Yes. It is tall. Mine had a leak at the stem. Good otherwise.

Rube Goldberg lathe is a failure. Cones on the ends of the shafts do not provide enough bite, plus these heater motors came out of my buses because they were not quite up to snuff anymore. I figured they would run fine for 5 minutes or so. Not so, they are really weak. I am running them in series right now. I might try them in parallel later but I still need to get them to bite onto the workpiece.

Rewired in parallel and the speeds almost match. Added a collar on one side to add some surface area. No luck. I think the thrust load is just wearing the bronze bushings out of the motors, which opens enough of a gap for it to start slipping almost immediately.

I followed up to "added a collar" I have no idea of what your are saying, but I know you do.

Could you dumb it down for a mechanical moron.. Pics, even cartoons would be swell.

These motors are designed to spin a squirrel cage fan. The only real load on them is the weight of the fan, which acts perpendicular to the shaft of the motor. In either end of these motors are bronze bushings instead of bearings to center the shaft and armature inside the motor case. They are cheap but not so strong. The collar is just an aluminum handle I had and put on to hopefully add enough friction to keep in spinning.

Actually they are ball bearing motors. I'm not sure what is going on.

Thanks, the picture of the collar makes that part totally clear now.

The motors look fairly heavy duty. Are they not powerful enough maintain a good RPM on the dowel(?) the part you want to spin fast so you can lathe it? <-probably the wrong word.. work with me here.
