That perfect motor

Last year I found the perfect motor for another boat build but I was too slow. I picked up what I thought would work and it did but when I went back to get 2 more they were all gone with no more to be found. The story of my life right. I found a place in California that has them but was wondering if anybody had any dealings with them in the past? Good, bad....Here is a link to their site.

Here is the link to the motor in question. It's one of those fancy Swiss made Maxon A-max coreless motors.

I picked up three 9V versions of that motor years ago on eBay. I have one in my Springer, and it is very smooth... except it really whines (more like screams) at low speed with the 15A Marine Viper ESC.

I found the thread I started about it... titled "The perfect motor"

Hmm. Interesting that this topic came up as I just purchased two 12v dc motors at Princess Auto. On sale for $3.99 ea. Larger than any motors I have in my tugs. Couldn't find the part # on the motors on the Johnson web site. They are Johnson. Very smooth running. Tried them free running on 12v and drew only .3 of an amp. Tried loading it holding the shaft and couldn't stop it, it drew 1.5 amps. A lot more efficient than my other motors. Tried the same test on 6v and got almost the same results. Just have to start looking for a big tug to put them in. They are not high revers, so ideal for direct drive.

I got 2x 700 sized Johnson type can motors of Ebay for $15ea. They are 3500rpm@12v (no load) and 0.4 of Amp. Very smooth running too, going to try em in USS California see what sort of speed they give and current at full power...

I'm trying to get the parts together for the driveline of my next boat. I'm trying to cram three screws with three motors into a 4" wide hull and still make it look good. I found some spacers that the motor will clip right into, provide some cooling and have built in mounting tabs. Pretty nifty eh.

They're original intended purpose was to act as a hydraulic cylinder stop on a dental chair. Just some of the extras laying around here at work.
