DiaMag8 Test Platform
OK, got the rotor reworked. I had to remove all the magnets from the rotor, cleaned off all the old epoxy, and then glue it back together with a better epoxy. Here is a better video also...
I was kinda disappointed with the ease in which I was able to break the magnets loose from the rotor, and then remove the epoxy from the magnets and the rotor base. Basically I used my hands and fingernails to take the rotor apart. I needed to do what I could to increase the adhesion of the epoxy to the rotor base and the magnets. Here I have chucked up the rotor on the drill press, and am using a coarse rasp to rough up the rotor.
