$15/20 Boardnamics Caliber Motor Mounts


#21

omg this is so good. I’ve been looking for some mount that’s simple like TB’s and still affordable. Yours seems to be perfect!


#22

@Boardnamics, I think your strategy is working :smiling_imp:


#23

What width of belt supports the motormount with belt tensioner? max 12mm or more?


#24

Check a few posts up and he says what he uses.


#25

These are pretty solid mounts and at this price, and made in the USA, this is a downright steal


#26

Oh thanks i completely read past that, so 15mm width pretty good


#27

You vouch for them? I’m thinking of using these for the dual 5055 build.


#28

I had one before and it was solid.


#29

You could buy up all of Johnny’s “pulley kit’s” and then sell total motor mount and pulley kits.


#30

My plan is to sell complete drivetrains for caliber E trucks. The pulleys would be a challenge to machine but possible.


#31

don’t machine basic pulleys go for chains if your makeing something.
People who love belts will still buy the chains for science.

Just buy a few sprockets and drill holes in em thats it.


#32

There is always gonna be a drivetrain debate. There’s threads on it all the time. If I were to do pulleys, I’d buy pulley stock and cut it to 15mm slices.

Sprockets, not sure


#33

i might have a chain drive train in the makes :smiley:

Just need to make some 3d printed parts somehow


#34

Factory in full swing

I made a mirror copy of the idler arm so now if you order 2 idler mounts, the idlers will be on the same side. This was requested for a while :slight_smile:


#35

I’ve ordered a total of 4 mounts a few days ago. Pls tell me this is what I’m getting
I’d hate to have one idler facing the wrong direction :grimacing:


#36

They all will be the correct mirrored pairs


#37

did anyone mention that a lil groove or notch where the idler pulley nut is is helpful? just a thought… on my marc mounts I like how it holds the nut for me when tightening down the idlers instead of needing an extra tool to hold if/when it spins… this is one thing Im thinking about on this dickyho mount im using for a diff board.


#38

Yee. Thank you :+1:t3:


#39

Are you milling that by hand or a really big router?


#40

Ah nice picture, on the site it says that the idler version is capable for wheels bellow 97mm, would 97mm be possible?
