Hi!
I could not find a formula to directly calculate the losses there. I found this pdf with a formula on page 7. Unfortunately in german, and with a pitfall for noninsiders: The losses are in Power per Weight. And of course the formula only fits to thin laminations compared to their width. http://neu.bucherhandel.de/media/bi... und Blech.pdf servus, Martin 



Not a half but a quarter of the original losses when halving the thickness.

So if I made stator plates out of some really thin shim stock, say .002" (.05mm, I think...), would the thinness make up for the lack of silicon (resistance)?
Good Luck!

Hmmmm most cheap motors use .5mm lams and the better ones use .21 lams so you can expect an decrease in losses around 25%..
I'll have to see how that formula plays out with several of my motors... Thanks, B 



Prinz...I can't find out how to contact you. I've got some questions about sourcing stator laminations. Send me a PM with your email address if it's not too much trouble. (sorry for hijacking the thread...I'll delete this message soon








Maybe I'm blind...but I can not find his email on the www.powercroco.de. Could the google translator have eaten it?!!
