NEW MOTOR MOUNT DESIGN

Hey guys and girls, I’ve been lurking in shadows for awhile now, and finally recently joined. I really enjoy the forum, and kinda feel like I already know some of you! Anyway… my younger brother got me hooked on this crap, and now I’m addicted like him! Thanks to him always wanting something better for his own use, and me having a full machine shop, (in which I spend way to much time) we started making mounts and parts for his boards, and then started selling them as well.
I’m now building my own board, and incorporating those ideas into it! So, I’m posting some pics, and would love some honest feedback!!!

I really like the way your clamps are secured - they look solid and clean!

Looks hella nice. Is that stainless or polished aluminium?

So, we didn’t really like the idea of clamping an adapter to the hanger and then the mount to the hanger. The original plan was machine the exact profile directly into mount, but by brother thought it to be a good idea to go ahead and make different clamp rings for different hangers, that way you could use the same mounts on different set ups cheaply.
The handle in the rear serves several purposes. First, a pull handle to pull these heavy beasts around, 2nd, it ties the mounts together to make them much more ridged, 3rd,
we have molded urethane bumpers that snap into grooves and provide for a “kickstand” of sorts to stand the board on end, lastly, it kinda looks :sunglasses:.

In clamping the mount to the hanger, I didn’t like helicoils and of course not aluminum threads. So I machined pockets to accept lock nuts. The nut is totally contained, no need for a wrench, and not visible from the other side

@xsynatic kind of, yes! @RideNebula is my brother Steve, I’m Phil, and I do all the machining. I am developing the system for diy, and want to get feedback from the community!

That looks so fucking cool!! Which trucks are you planning to support?

Oh and are you planning on making your own trucks? I don’t recognize those in your pictures.

Do those capital letters offend your viewing pleasure?

Why is the handle so far from motors? Seems unnecessarily long

all trucks. I’ve made insert rings for caliber 2, matrix 2’s, torqueboards, and my own hanger, but any profile hanger really. Personally, for my build, which is on an EVO 40, I’m NOT gonna use a clamp ring. I figured out the angle I want it, so I’m gonna machine the profile directly into the mount itself.
As for the truck, or hanger you see pictured, that’s what I Made for me. It’s a little thick, 22mm cross section, then necked down to accommodate the motor mount. I’m still riding it and testing out. It fits a caliber base, but am gonna machine my own base, with integrated cable management.
