Re: Chieftain Rifling Plug

While I was printing the test rifling plug, I thought I'd do a test on the final drive quill shaft adjuster: 20200626_231954.jpg This was eyeballed from some of the pictures posted here so not sure it's the correct size. I went with 19mm diameter as that looked about right on the cover. If anyone kn...

Re: Chieftain Rifling Plug

Yes, it's an Anycubic Photon S, with Elegoo "ABS-like" resin.

I'm only using the Elegoo resin as the grey Anycubic resin seems to be impossible to get at the moment.

Re: Chieftain Rifling Plug

I have to say I'm pretty happy with the output. Apologies for the photos, it's so long since I've used my camera that the battery seems to have died :-( 20200626_213920.jpg Plug once released from the supports and backing plate 20200626_214005.jpg Plug fitted to the barrel I'm going to set the cost ...

Re: StuG III - Installation KWK limit switches

Looking at the pictures in that thread, it looks as though the traverse should just move the gun back and forth if you keep it in one direction too long. A motor has no knowledge of its position, so you cannot just use the transmitter to limit it. With some work, you could replace the motor with a s...

Yes, I think we'd be tearing up their tarmac and overdosing on ice creams if we were there at the moment!!

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

I did find another video on beer stabilisation and the Russian tank, which may have been a T-64, did appear to be spilling some.

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

It would be good to see your system working under slow conditions, maybe with a glass of water on the end of the barrel... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dd0Azxb2N0 Chieftain only had a cross country performance of about 18mph, which is roughly walking pace at our scale, and probably wouldn't be t...

Re: Chieftain kit arrival

I love the test rig :-)

It looks to me as though the actuator operates much faster when controlled by the receiver than by the Arduino. Do you think that is the case ?

I don't think Google understood what you said here: "I found that sensors are more sensitive than raw giggles" ;-)
