$15/20 Boardnamics Caliber Motor Mounts


#122

Fuq! My motors arrived today. I lost my patience :sweat_smile: Can you add some holes so I can add a pulley cover later on?


#123

Waiting patiently on mine :grin: thanks for the affordable mounts!


#124


good lookin out, kevin! :star_struck::heart_eyes:


#125


Making progress


#126

trying to figure out what belts I will need. Going to be running 36t wheel pulley and 16t motor pulley. I tried to do some searching. What’s the best way to figure this out?


#127

I run simulations on a program from Gates to find the right belts. The 320mm I include would work great for that ratio


#128

Didn’t even know you included belts! Nice, looking forward to getting the mounts. What size width are they?


#129

Use this, he has the center distance at 70mm ± 8 which Iassume means you can adjust it that much

I never accounted for an idler so that link get’s thrown out the window if you’re using one.


#131

12mm. Some people swear by 15mm but 12mm works just fine especially with an idler


#132

Ah I am going to be using standard caliber II trucks so the wheel pulleys I 3D printed today are 9mm. Hmm.


#133

I’m planing on using dual 6355 with 15mm belts on e-calibers. I was told this would work fine on another thread. Regular calibers I’m not sure. I am gonna be using bolt on pulleys so that probs helps.


#134

This says i would be good with 275mm length belts hmm :thinking:


#135

Because it doesn’t include idlers into the mix which take more belt length. Both the idler and non idler would work though


#136

Oh I ordered the non idler version so I guess 275 would be more accurate for me maybe :slight_smile: can’t wait to get them! Cheers


#137

Yay! Made a fixture and can now mill both sides. This means there is now a chamfer on all edges so they are super smooth and shiny!


#138

wow nice. Does that thing look like the “diamond cut” like this?


#139

Yep. Really adds to the look. It’s way nicer in person. This also makes my job easier cause I no longer file them by hand.


#140

Damn these are clean looking.
I want to take the surf rod trucks I put on my Riptide and use them for my upcoming Redember deck.
Thinking I’ll go with some calibers on the riptide since its a budget board.
Mounts look perfect.
Works with 50xx motors too?


#141

Yeah the idler version and non idler work with 50mm motors. Still have to make a fixture for the 50mm arm (without idler) for chamfer
