Hello Dwane,

I would not mess with shaft replacement!!...In my experience they are VERY hardly pressed in, plus shaft have spines which sink into the laminated armature steel plus on commutator.

You may end up ruining commutator-windings and possible armature frame...

If you think do not have enough space to add the slip ring...then think about adding a flat-horizontal type that works with a vertical brush (parallel to shaft)...and install it in between two of the lower frame extensions to Center stator frame.

Other choice is to check if your shaft is isolated from outer casing...or even if not you could use whole housing as the positive from source, then just jumping from comm shaft area to one element.

Brushes should be isolated from metal housing

Anyways...just my advice.

edit: Hi UFO,
I have just seen your post, and I would confirm your comments about shaft. I might look for another, although finding one like yours is going to be difficult: with parallel laminations.

Hi guys,
Have stripped the motor down. Not quite what I was expecting. Stepped shaft will complicate the grinding requirement for the wire feed, Also, the diagonal armature laminations will not assist me with testing what I would have like to rewind. Also, I think it will well nigh impossible to extract the shaft without doing a lot of damage to the winding and the commutator. I do not know anyone with a bin full of old motors.

Back to square one.

Regards

Dwane

Hi Dwane,

That's why I posted about using ground. Or in other words, use the shaft itself for the wire feed. No grinding, no slip ring.

Hi bistander,
I do remember that now, thanks for reminding me. That's correct. The shaft is isolated, so can be used as a source. However, as much as the diagonal windings on the armature assist with a smoother operation of a motor, i was expecting parallel windings. Not sure if these I have will hinder any attempt at radiant collection. Suck it and see might be the best approach!

I would have had the shaft machined out of a parallel wound armature, and rewound it for a couple of tests I want to try. Longer shaft will be helpful.

Anyway, I'll set up a basic drive as per the approach on the thread as a learning exercise. Meanwhile, back in the jungle, I shall look for a different motor to hack.

Edit: Isolated from the coil and commutator.

Regards

Dwane
