Well, if it all works as I hope it will, there's certainly potential for some braiding service. At least for small motorcycle harnesses ;)

Oran (see his post in this section) has sent me his two Chief-harnesses as a pattern to make new ones, so depending on their condition I hope this point is taken care of, too ;D . Still have to wait 'til they arrive.

I could make some progress, too.
As a distance piece in the middle and also for mounting the tube where the harness will go through, I made an Aluminium ring, with an M50x1 fine thread and bores for polting the top and base plates together.




The tube:




Three bolts and distances for the drive motor:




The motor is of a wire drive of a well known Austrian manufacturer of welding equippment. As they need to pull quite a bit in industrial use for years, it will most likely never die in this application ;D
A good 4Nm of torque and a 1:24 transmission should give the needed "bang":




The drive sprocket is mounted to the motor shaft by a hub with key:






Motor and sprocket mounted to the base plate:




As you can see, there's little space to the distances. Just to be sure I'll turn these down some 1/10mm:




From above:




And top plate set in place:



For now it's running (on a battery at only 12V instead auf the rated 42V). The pcb for foot pedal controll is in progress.
So long,
Andreas

Hi Oran,
nothing here yet :-[
But it's Easter, so there's always some more waiting to calculate.

Well, now I am officially proud of myself! Made a small device, to be able to fabricate the bobbins, and so I did:

So how does it run? Like that:

Thanks!

@Oran: No, it did not! I've been on the phone with the customs departement and they transmitted me to the post office. They told me to wait at least another week. They claimed they had a lot of deliveries at the time and it may take 4-5 weeks until it is processed! Unbelievable in my opinion, but there's nothing more I can do but wait.

I could -by the way- reduce the current needed by half, just by adding some grease!
Rammed a knife in my arm to the bone today though (when cleaning the kitchen :P), so working will be much harder for some time, with one arm useless as a second butthole  >:(

No changes still. Believe me, these people are driving me crazy right now! I was writing mails, complaints, hanging on the phone and nobody has any valuable information. I'm pretty sure it got stuck or lost somewhere at the airport, as it's been 5 weeks now without any changes of status. I'd send you all the mails an letters I received, but I guess It wouldn't do any good, as it's all in German. ???

My arm is good again btw.

I just called them again and they still tell me to wait. I made an inquiry and they told me it might take up to 8 weeks for the results!!!
Believe me, this is a crying shame and definetely no fun >:(
If it was somewhere in Africa, but here?! Just rediculous!

I wonder if there's something going on with Deutsche Post. I sent a set of Redditch "S" cams from the UK to someone in the USA a couple of weeks ago, posted Thurday and arrived the following Tuesday, alles in Ordnung. The guy mentioned that he had a German exchange student staying with him and his wife, and the student's mother sent him a pacrel from Germany. It took weeks to arrive and when it did the parcel looked as though it had been run over.

Hope it your loom surfaces soon, and in good condition.
