Will the 1/4 inch flexshaft be able to handle the torque? I have seen some of the 1/4 inch squares on the centrifugal clutch become round and slip on the shaft.
Speaking about gearboxes, many people buy the Harbor Freight auger just for the motor to use on friction drives, etc, but that auger gearbox has an output of 150 RPM at full speed. I was wondering if anyone has considered using the output to drive a chainring sprocket, so the gearbox would do the turning instead of pedaling?
