After the last motor install in a boat I sat down over a few pints!!!
Also I would like to thank Roger from The Marine Modellers Club Hobart Tasmania Australia for the beautiful lathe work again.

That's a very well machined tool. Now all I need is a lathe.

A great idea - and one I will adopt!
Since the shafts on brushless motors are easy to take out, I've been using prop-shafts of the same diameter, and passing a prop- shaft directly through the motor to align the mount and tube (adding a joint afterwards, of course!). But this offers a much more flexible solution...

I also used a short bit of 4mm rod in a 4mm flex shaft setup it was a bit floppie, but, with a bit of heat shrink.
I managed to get the mount better setup and with flex shaft easily going into the adapter.
I also put a short bit of IC fuel tube on the flex shaft so if the adapter comes loss I do not drop the flex drive and prop into the depths!!!!

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
