Talk:Requirements for LifeTrac Wheel Motors and Couplings
I've framed the requirements as best I can.
- fill in the XXXs
- peer review (optional, but suggested)
- pass it to GrabCAD, to amend the competition.
Without knowing exact dimensions of all parts of all parts related and adjacent to this coupler, how can someone make a design?
Because FeF and other builders have no ability to manufacture internal splines, buying a spline hub off the shelf is unavoidable. There are 2 types usually available: This coupler is usually attached to the wheel assembly with a shrink fit.
This coupler is connected to the wheel assembly by bolts and nuts.
Both designs require lathe work, #1 for the shrink fit and #2 for centrification.
I can't see a working design with the components and tools specified as allowable.
