I'm still waiting for my 22/20/2 w/ 1/8" shaft. It's been 3-4 months now. I'm beginning to think it's just not going to happen.

I'm glad I let Kirk drill a pinion for me. I thought about ording the 1/8" shaft. It would be nice to use the pinions with the set screw on the MEC gearbox.

just hook up the motor to a speed controll and let a grinding wheel grind that hardned metal down to 1/8 "
make a protective box so no shavings enter the insides
and let it rip

took me 3 days to recieve the motor in mail and 25 minutes of grinding , dipping in water to cool, grinding, measuring, grinding , then all done

i tried it originally with a file from sears but the hardned shaft dulled the file

i think i still have the pictures if you are intersted and have a bench grinder

IBob,
How many amps are you pulling? I just ordered this setup fro MEC and hope the 40 amp Jeti controller I have will handle 10 cells. Otherwise I'll try 8 cells.

I use Jeti (gold Label) W/BEC speed control and 10c/2400. Never a problem. 14X7 is favorite prop for this combo! BOB
