Finally got around to (almost) finishing my new RSG.
Was partially inspired by the one Bill Wysock made for Cabbott Sanders.......
Speaking of Cabbott, I trust he is well. The last I heard he removed a
finger inadvertently with a band-saw. As he was a regular poster to the
list, the silence is mildly disconcerting.
Anyway. Had a bit of fun making the RSG. Machined various bits from
aluminium stock on a friends lathe and am pretty happy with the result:
I know Bert has concerns about the use of Lexan for the rotor but G10 is a
little hard to find down here and the prototypes I built didn't suffer from
any excessive heat build-up. I think this is mainly due to the relatively
long electrode length and considerable windage!
Now back to the power controller ;-)
