Centrifuge Progress/Update

I’m still working on the centrifuge. At this point I need to remake the center shaft because it is not perfectly straight. It got warped when I welded it. I need a more powerful power supply for the motor. I want to make the top bearing have less friction. And I want to make the rubber bearing mounts stiffer. The two main problems it had were it vibrated and it didn’t have enough power to get up to speed. I had hoped it would work better than it did, but I still have hope of it being a success. I see light at the end of the tunnel. I have all reason to think it will be a success. Hopefully next time I’ll have it working.
