@OC:

Any new thoughts or designs on how to do the latching mechanically?
Do you think that 13 stators are required, or can we work with the old WhipMag parts to work up a latch that works?

Cheers,

diffident

Whatcha gonna be doing when this contract is over?

I'm done here in SAC in the next few days and then it's on to places unknown. To be sure I need to unwind after this one -- a real test of metal.

I've been thinking about taking a few months off like I did back in '08, and have been trying to catch up on the WhipMag and Orbo.

My next approach will be using magnetic latches. I've discussed it a bit in various threads, but primarily in the WhipMag 3 thread. I now have most of the parts to actually construct a prototype stator, but will need to get a couple rotors built. It's going to take me some time.

Only 1 stator is required to build a prototype, but 5 is the minimum I see having a chance at doing something special. It must be an odd number of stators.

Do you have some fixed place to go when you take some time off? Or is "home" wherever you unpack your bags?
