I was just getting my feet wet with the 4th axis and writing the code , on my boats the electric motors are watercooled and I figured a cooling jacket with fins would be cool . This was just an experiment to see how 50 and 60 fins would look and is now sitting on my bench as a paper weight , when the new motors come in I will make the jackets with fins going from one end to the other

I have 4 right now Rich , the Stealth is capable ( black boat in video ) of almost 80 mph at 100% power , 80% is about as much as I have pushed . these are multiphase brushless motors capable of 10,000 watts output at max power (14 horsepower )

Hello everyone , I bought a taig mill a few months back and am now starting to learn to run it with mach3 . for now I write my own code with the blending of wizards till I eventualy learn CAD . I just installed a vacuum pickup by the cutter bit to keep the mess down to a minimum and to also keep the path clear for the bit . the next upgrade will be DC drive with a variable speed control . I will be making parts for my remote control boating hobby and will be selling made up parts for other modelers by request . here are two videos one of the mill and the other of my other Passion . please enjoy and all comments are welcome

Got it thanks , the reason I didn't see it was that I am running 1024 x 768 resolution and it was 90% hidden at the botton , also why does the GO TO and GO TO Z work backwards compared to the normal program screen

Out of all the mach screens tried I like using this one by far the best ( softlights )
