Hello,
I have bought 3 brand new outer shafts for my lamas.
Not one is straight, easy to tell when you spin up with only the shaft spinning.
Does anyone have a technique to bend them back straight?
Also a physics question?
I hope I can explain this well enough!
So if you have a 1 gram flybar weight 9 and 1 half centimeters from the main shaft that equals X gyroscopic effect,
How many centimeters would you put a 2 gram weight to equal X?
I am sure there is a well know formula for this but when I search I have not found it!
thank you

Could it be an out-of-round or wavy gear causing the movement?

Good idea, but no.
Thanx for the idea, but when I spin it up and look from the bottom,all seems OK.
I am almost sure the shaft is bent, or shall I say, all of my new shafts are not true.
Did receive an idea,with the gear hanging over the end of a piece of wood roll another on top,thereby sandwiching and flattening out a bow or bend.
I will try this and see how it goes.
