    @Deijan5 , you need to have 12v12, 21v3 not powerful enough.

    @Erwan960 , @eaorobbie , I fitted 60:1 boxes today to my mates sim, they are near impossible to move with no power on them, they should keep the sim stable when its off.

    Shane made me the shipping cost 70$ less than before. It's a little bit better !
    When I ask him how to reverse the shaft side :
    "you can convert them from right to left by pulling the gearboxes apart (you need to pop the rivets out with a punch) then by tapping the main shaft out of the main worm gear with a soft hammer and turning it around and reinserting it into the main worm gear and then reassembling it."

    It only remains for me to order!

    yep, thats how I did it, a lot of swearing here though, as I only have a concrete garage floor,a vice and a block of wood and 3 pound hammer, I just bought some bolts from the hardware store to hold it together again.

    WOW...the work on this project is fantastic. How many amps at load do those dc motors pull.

    I'm using two 12V - 50 A power supplies and my JRK are set to deliver 38 A max.

    We have recorded 45-48amp draw through the Jrks on motor stall to change direction, but thats only for a split second with simular motors.
    Jrks with cooling dont have a problem punching those numbers out all day.
