I too considered using J B Weld but rejected that idea figureing that it was an epoxy too, forgetting that it is impregnated with metal and therefore should be better able to withstand the heat.

I guess that the problem I was having with the bond failing was due to " OLD EPOXY " and since has been corrected by using fresh from a new package.

That was IMO only a contributing factor as I believe that I was generating too much heat by over propping with the 1260

I have since run a 1080 @ 3600 rpm for 30 min without overheating the stator & magnets

The excess heat was causingthe motor to slow down and if I stopped it, it would not restart. It just jittered failing to start and run.
I still want to run a 1260 @ 3K so I will try some more windeing combinations, most likely a Delta wind next.

Thx to everyone, your input has been helpfull!
