Have you ever seen inside...?
A few weeks ago, Brian Davis mailed me about his photos from the inner parts of a PF XL-Motor.
This is a perfect fit for the "Have you ever seen inside...?" sub-theme under "TBs TechNugets", which I started some months ago with the TECHNIC Clutch and never returned too (except for the recent LA dissection, although not in a specific post), despite having several material in the queue to post...
Nevertheless here you have some interesting photos for the inner parts of this huge and powerful PF motor, which delivers up to 40 N.cm until it stalls .
For the complete picture series from the disassembling process, please refer to the respective Brian's folder at BS (despite almost every picture shown here...).
Thanks Brian to have opened one and have killed both yours, our curiosity and of course also the motor... (some other motors, should now be safe... )
Attention: Don’t try this yourself unless you are prepared to loose the motor!...
As you can see from the pictures, the disassembling process is destructive, unless you are ready to glue the parts in the end...
This info have meanwhile, also been added by Philo to complement his PF info page.
As he mentioned, realize on the dual stage planetary gear reduction.
You can even see the grease over the gears for lubrication.
Thanks for the hint, Brian!
