OKEE DOKEE,
Got one all mounted up and ready to go.
Waiting for the Gecko and power supply.
These little suckers are very nifty. It comes as a kit to fit almost any shaft dia. and 2 different mounting plates to match many bolt patterns.
Anxious to see how they perform.
Will post back when running....Wish me luck. New technology, I may be the first sacrificial SUCKER !

The thing I didn't like about them was the 30,000rpm limit. That would lower my travel speeds to slightly below the sound barrier. I'm just not ready to take a performance hit like that. If all you potentially loose is $37, then your more of a small lollipop than a sucker. I hope they work flawlessly!

Hey Overloaded,
Never did say what you were going to try it on. So what's the scoop so far?

RICH,
Here is what I am/was planning:  http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,8101.0.html
I have hit a stump however. (Or it hit me)
May have to get out of this for a while.
Thanks,

Hood,
I may need to change employment. Would probably destroy my time at home.

Well I'm servo illiterate so can't help you there. Now stumps, well they don't call us "stump jumpers" for nothing back n the
coal region, we just jump over them.  :)
I was hoping that you would get a chance to check out the resolution settings and also see how prone to interference they are.

All is not lost...yet.
Also have a PA22-160 to recover. :P
Really eating up my spare time.

Some stumps we couldn't jump......Got out the ol' "Improvised Munitions Handbook" and wallah...(had to replace some of my neighbors windows, and a few of mine as well) ::)
