Starting with volume 2 as my web building program does not allow that much rules on one page.
Today I started with building the frond wheel clamp and started wit the controller arm witch will house all the control components.
The wheel clamp was a bid more work then I thought but managed to get is (close) to the plan.
Cutting the plates to the desired length.
Next was cutting under 45 degrees but also under a angular.
Perhaps not a professional way to do it, but it worked.
Cut and cleaned ready for welding
And her she is, needs a lot more of welding but the start is there
Started on the arm with will house the control panel
Constructed a bid strong but it needs to house the following
2) Eddy current controller
3) Cooling fan controller
4) Exhaust fan controller
5) Cooling fan angular controller
6) Space for a future controller
Can swing it easily to the left when I need to mound a bike on it, or work on it.
Started on constructing the adjustable fan holder.
The idea is that the fan can be adjust up and down also nearer and further away.
So it can be set on the right position for each tzr witch I will be testing.
Tubes cut ready for welding
Outside tubes weld into place
Four outside tubes on there places
Four slide legs
All four cut to the desired height
Welding the push construction on the lower part
A 4000N linear actuator
550mm height when fully down
750mm height when fully up
Not a big jump today, started at the adjustment part for forwards and backwards controller.
With this option I should be able to manually angle the blower as close as possible to the radiator
Distance at closed
Fully open 30cm
Example: in basic mode
Adjusted as tight as possible
To get a idea about the fan, I'm planning to use these types (example picture)
You have them really big about 20kg pushing around 4500m3 air.
That would be more then enough for my little 125's and 250's
