Oh, the value of a mate with a lathe!
I actually borrowed my mates simply to push a shaft squarely into a bell..never even switched it on...just used teh tailstock with the bell squared up in the main chuck..
Vint - that's an interesting option that I hadn't actually thought of, I've already contacted John this morning to ask about the 2820/12s, so I'll see what he comes up with.
Someone else had the same problem, and ordered a new one..a week ago..in here somewhere...bearings? new ball races shouldn't be hard either. Biggest worry is 'did it demag, or did it just blow?'
Not sure how you would test for that, oher than with a new stator and seeing if the idle current and KV were on spec...expensive experiment..if the results are negative.
