Yep. The planer chipped the crap out of birch and maple. The sander is wonderful.

Was it sharp?

I bought mine because I am replacing my bedroom door with a solid wood one, but the new door is a quarter-inch too wide, but I hoped to use it to remove the old paint from the trim that is not reversible.

Maybe someone wants to name their Arcimoto "Prince Archie."

Why Archie instead of Architecturally, Archnemesis, or even Archibald, I cannot explain the Brits!

Planer knives sharpened incorrectly. You need to "scrape" rather than slice those types of hard wood. Slicing tries to lift the shavings, thus, chipping-tearing.

Same as drilling plastic, scrape don't cut and you won't break it.

It was brand new and had problems with change in grain directions and knots. Our birch wasn’t great.

Been my experiences that brand new does not mean sharp or correct angle on bits or blades. The manufacturer generally provides a OSFA grind that tends to survive the punishment a newbie does but does not do all things really well.

Drilling plastic means a duller bit since you want a melting action to prevent stress cracks around the hole

Regards the planer blades, look up "back grinding planer blades. Have drilled thousands of holes in plastic and acrylic, Sharpened correctly there are no stress cracks around the edges.

Freebeard, First one is doing well, second is half done due to remodeling the sawmill to sell lumber for funding. The body is mostly laid out in wood strips and the battery frame is welded in secure. 2 fiberglass front fenders are laid up.

Just need to clone myself and have a wealthy relative remember me in his or her will.

I constantly check this thread, as well as others. Not much to say and need to post a build thread with photos, someday.

Were things different, I'd want two LaCrosse altermotors in a R.Q.Riley X-3 chassis
https://rqriley.com/product/xr3-hybrid-plans/
..and I'd be trying to figure out how to do a differential with electric controllers.

Better to let Arcimoto do it.

Instead of a pusher trailer, I'm thinking about an in-wheel gas engine in back.

Hub motors just don't get it in heavier motos. You need high revving motors for direct drive or minimum 3/1 gearing. There is a new controller in beta testing right now that will do 100KW at 600A all day long.

I still have my altermotor + an AC 35 3 phase motor with a Curtis 96V 300A controller. Also have a 6 phase hub motor that should be good for the new build that is paired with 2 150V 350A controllers. That may get mounted as a mid drive mounted above the swivel of the swingarm.

The new build has a 30S3P Chevy Volt battery in it.



That Riley does not lean either.
