Looks like the opportunity to order from this batch will close soon. Tomorrow, maybe. Anyone else order besides me?

This thread used to be alive with excitement. Seems kind of petered out now. :(

I wonder if something about the new design is scaring some folks? I'm not crazy about it either, BUT my eagerness for this mod got the better of me and overwhelmed my other concerns.

I'll report back over time. Looks like I might be the only one. At least the only here at HB.

Hi Peter,

Please do report back on your experiences with the install and the new design. I'd like to motorize my HG1 someday and like this design the best so far. I hope it works out great for you. Thanks!
Cheers!

Window now closed. Looks like I'm the only one in this batch. I'll report back.

IIRC, Daniel said this one will be no kit building. Remove the old base, (I've already loosened mine and re assembled with anti seize), and put the grinding section on the motor (line up coupler to key on shaft). Tighten screws. Done.
