Camilo and Victor spent lots of time making the clamps fit perfectly:

We then made renderings for the motor and its mounts (for prettiness sake)

Shout-out to Travis at http://emf-power.com/ who sold us the AC-20!
When the motor arrived we checked the laser cut clamps with the actual motor and then it was time for some waterjetting!
We also machined the sprocket with its bolt circle and its bore.
With the pieces waterjet and post machined it was motor mounting time! Roberto and Jacob spent part of their friday night putting the motor in. It took a while but it came out great!

Our next big challenge is to get our Sevcon Gen4 driving the motor. Stay tuned for more updates!
