Disassembled Dome Drive

This hardly qualifies as building, in fact it's taking things apart.

In preparation for a new Saturn motor that will run at 12 volts, I removed the 24 volt motor that runs my dome. The dome drive is held on using a bolt from underneath. The bolt goes through a small piece of bar, from which the motor hangs.

A 1/8" diameter brass rod locks the dome wheel onto the shaft adapter. Fortunately, I made the rod removable with pliers, so I can migrate the dome wheel to the new motor.

It's all apart, awaiting the new motor.
