    That ram was made back in 2004.... I can imagine the oring on the piston not being all that happy with 13 years of idleness. Does the rod/piston move smoothly?

    Last time I epoxy'd magnets I did make up a batch of epoxy, dabbed it in between the magnets and had the motor spin around in the lathe untiel the glue was hardened.

    In any case, the Iskra's are European made (Slovakia) and that is reflected in build quality and pricetag.

    In Bullfrog the Iskra 24V 1.2Kw motors @10S were bulletproof combined with the Robot Power Sidewinder. Never had any problems with those. One disadvantage tough, they are heavy compared to...

    It depends on your knowledge and/or acces to machining time. But for a beginner, an electric lifter is easy enough. If you're aquinted to industrial pneumatics, a low pressure lifter or even...

    Any decent hydraulics suppier can help you there. Iskra's are most used on hydraulic pump groups for lorry-tail gates and such.

    Yes, it will. Scooter motors are a tad bigger than battery drill motors. The MY1016 works perfectly with the Tz85A in high stall apprications. The Sidewinder survives Bosch 750, Iskra 1.2Kw...

    The LiFePo4's are not under the Fuse Rule because the battery Chemistry is inherently safer than LiPo. Worst that those can do is puff up and emit a lot of smoke.

    We tested a Revolt RV-100pro unsensored on 3S driving a 20kg disk on bronze bushings today. It needed a small push to get start, but it made the revs calculated. I'm really curious how it will...

    I guess we have a little confusion about cells in series and cells in parallel. Good LiPo and LiFePo4 packs have balancing leads, especialy to charge each cell. That is also the reason for the...

    The HPDE over a very resilient open frame isn't a bad idea , and there are some fine examples of that. Unfortunatly, never seen one done in any degree of succes in heavyweight. But don't worry...
