OT: attached DC motor to kick scooter

My second attachment of a cordless drill motor to a manually powered transportation device. This attempt was to test the idea that a fork
with a roller on its end pressed against a wheel at a slight angle would automatically press the roller against the wheel depending on force required to turn the wheel, and then automatically release the pressure whenever the wheel was rolling freely. The other purpose of this design was to allow freewheeling of the roller whenever the wheel was spinning faster than it was being driven. Unfortunately, what happens is that the roller stops pushing the wheel and the wheel kicks the roller out away from the wheel, the roller returns, and gets kicked out again. The reason for that is because the roller is attached to the motor shaft which is not freewheeling, and the wheel is spinning quickly. When the spring that keeps some tension on the roller against the wheel is tightened, the roller doesn't get kicked out as far or as frequently. Further tightening of the spring keeps the roller from being kicked out from the wheel, but that also defeats freewheeling, and freewheeling is about half of the purpose for the design.
The spring was removed for most of the pictures, it just goes from the motor fork to the wheel fork:
Newsgroups: alt.binaries.phish Subject: electric scooter
As you can see. The scooter wheel is driven by the roller. The roller is attached directly to the motor shaft. The motor is attached to a fork which is attached and pivots on a short fork. The short fork is attached to the scooter wheel. The reason the motor fork is made of two separate forks is because the roller must approach the wheel at an angle. If the motor fork were simply attached to the scooter axle, the roller would never move towards the scooter wheel.
Ultimately, I would like to design an electric powered scooter/whatever ultralight transportation device with in-line wheels for traversing rough terrain (or city streets, sidewalks, curbs, grass). Kind of like an ultralight electric powered skidoo or snowmobile but for dry land that takes significant advantage of downhills. In-line skates with 100mm wheels are a rough equivalent to a manually powered ideal device but hopefully the in-line wheel electric scooter will be easier to use. Currently working on how to steer the thing.
Have fun.

On Mon, 15 Oct 2007 23:04:50 -0700, with neither quill nor qualm,

Go for the larger mesh model. I use the caged model for hauling things around my back 40 to the burn pile.
I dragged a bigfoot panel wagon through COMDEX for a day once, its sides emblazoned with my DIVERSIFY.com name. That was fun. I velcroed it to my belt in back and just hauled ass up the boulevards with both hands free. Everyone who saw it either wanted one or thought it was a great idea to collect their heavy catalogs and other COMDEX goodies. One guy on a cell phone fell over it and cursed me. I smiled and suggested he could "either talk on the phone or watch the hell where he was going, huh?"
I used this one for the Gutenberg show in Long Beach a couple years in a row, and it wasn't nearly as nice as the bigfoot. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber2410 The steel on this one rattles a lot. (metal content)

The user's network (USENET) is a huge collection of noncommercial unmoderated forums for discussion of every topic known to man (and woman). Many newsgroups like (comp.speech.users) are for users discussing speech recognition and providing technical help to other users.
Advertising a commercial web site in the speech-recognition group is prohibited. Microphone sellers like Martin Markoe should show respect (if that were possible) for other sellers and regular users of speech-recognition by following the rules:
... in the body of his post, he should not include a link to a commercial web site if he has any commercial interest in that web site.
... if he includes a signature, he should keep it to four lines or less.
... he may include links to his commercial web site in a signature.
Otherwise, the malicious spammer Martin Markoe gets into a dispute with a competing vendor and starts littering his posts with links to his commercial web site. That abuse of the unmoderated speech-recognition group frustrates other vendors and annoys speech-recognition users.
Commercial web site operators are welcome to offer help, but we have limitations on advertising here in technical help groups on the unmoderated USENET in order to keep the discussion focused on users and to keep it from disintegrating into a commercial dogfight.
************************************************************
Martin Markoe (from eMicrophones, Inc) harasses and stalks others, and he violates the privacy of innocent people who have nothing to do with his malicious practices. By itself, Martin Markoe's willingness to push microphones on disabled users (whose problems usually have nothing to do with a microphone) provides insight into Martin's malicious character.
Anyone can express his (or her) opinion here on USENET, but advertising is not allowed except in groups specifically labeled for selling things like *forsale* and *marketplace*.
Following are a few quotes to help illustrate the annoyance and frustration spam from Martin Markoe (of eMicrophones, Inc) can cause for users seeking help in the speech users group and why advertising is prohibited on USENET with explicitly labeled exceptions.
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.speech.users/msg/3becc9fa6c340ffc ?
You are not a technologist. You sell microphones.
Marty, how come whenever someone disagrees with you, you get into this high school urinating contest mode? Actually I can't find your credentials anywhere either, except as a guy selling something.
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.speech.users/msg/473a2b3f9dd6a0f0 ?
Man you really are full of yourself! Just leave me alone. I asked you a question. Silly me, I wanted to know what I was buying before I bought it. How absurd! I then get email after email after email from you telling me that you won't answer my question and trying to justify it. Lets cut the crap. You won't answer my question. I won't buy from you. So now go away and let me get USEFUL information from someone who will be honest with me instead of evasive, devisive and insulting!
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.speech.users/msg/d256b8b7563712e9 ?
More importantly I am not here touting my business. A position which makes anything you say suspect, doesn't it.
I have been watching this group for a long time and you have managed to turn it into the eMicrophones, Inc. mail list. Almost no one with expertise posts here any longer.
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.speech.users/msg/6014c0e38032578f?
Is anyone else beyond annoyed with the two pathetically desperate "small business owners" that have driven this group into the ground?
I subscribed 6 months ago hoping to learn something about the "state-of-the-art" in voice recognition from the user's perspective.
All I've managed to learn is that most users are apparently being ripped off by over-charging slimy weaseloid microphone hawkers.
Martin Markoe and Mr. "speaktoyourpc.com", I beg you to consider the number of potential customers you're pissing off before you further demonstrate your witlessness by posting again. Your childish King-of-the-Group games should've stopped a loooong time ago.

Well said...Refreshing.
[That in response to the prior message.]

... dealing with you on the newsgroups is not an easy thing and most always turns into some type of flaming war.
... you do get into fights with many regarding microphones and you do wave your website around more often than necessary and you don't always tell the truth about competitive products.
I didn't respond because I simply did not want to get into another fight which is the reason my posts have been very light in the last few months.
Here are my qualifications. Certified and trained for Philips SpeechMagic, IBM ViaVoice, IBM Medspeak, Kurzweil VoiceMed, Dragon NaturallySpeaking Enterprise & L&H VoiceXpress... So please, don't call me a "Charlatan" because it is simply not true.
And believe me when I tell you that some users actually get better recognition from $20 headsets than with $100 headsets.
I see vendors posting all the time and as long as you are not a member of the newsgroup, there aren't constant one-up battles.

After getting caught with his pants down regarding his so called privacy policy, Martin continues to make a complete ass out of himself.
With this pattern of behaviour, the next step is usually stalking--email stalking (... to menacingly spread deceit)
[Martin Markoe does that.]

... you don't see the authors in all the newsgroups in a constant battle. Only with you Marty.
I have seen posts from you that link to as many as 8 direct links to your website (all in one post) and your signatures fall within 5 or 10 lines long. In my book, that's called SPAMMING.
... about 2 weeks ago, you claimed to have sold thousands of GN MPA Satellites. I know for a fact that is not true.
Guess what Marty.... I have a life. I don't have time to live on the newsgroups as you do.
This is the 2nd time you have mentioned me being moderated on user groups. Last time, you apologized about confusing me with someone else. YOU ARE OUT OF CONTROL MARTY MARKOE.
Marty, your constant abuse on these newsgroups... must come to an end.
http://groups.google.com/group/comp.speech.users/msg/5585a5e972b1cc1c ?
I give up. I've dealt with delusional people like you before, and it leads to nowhere... you continue attacking people who are FAR more experienced and qualified than you, not to mention professional.
