If you can’t build a mental model of what is going on, two or three small blocks of wood connected with cup?

Question by ericson c: If you can’t build a mental model of what is going on, two or three small blocks of wood connected with cup?
If you can’t build a mental model of what is going on, two or three small blocks of wood connected with cup hooks can enlighten the problem … Make sure you consider the fact that the railroad train car couplers have a good 3 inches of slack when they are hooked up. Write me up your answer

How do i mount a small electric motor on a piece of balsa wood?

Question by : How do i mount a small electric motor on a piece of balsa wood?
I am making an electric train with a balsa wood base, but the electric motor i bought did not come with a mount. I need to figure out which kind of material is light, easy to use, and will hold my motor securely. If you know how or have any suggestions, please tell me!

Ben,
you can use western red cedar, this timber is very light and will hold screws better than the Balsa, .
build an arch to fit around the motor on a cedar base , a thin layer of neoprene rubber will stop the motor slipping , and absorb any stress on the mount,.

you could also use 2 electricial zippy ties to secure the motor to a light ceadr base, or if you can do some basic metal work and have access to light guage aluminium, you could use the alloy instead of the cedar.
