I am building a motorized kick wheel as I haven't seen one in person I could use some help with the design.
The kick wheel itself will be filled with concrete. What are good diameters and thicknesses?
What is a good speed range? I'll be using a 1/2HP 3 phase motor with an inverter drive for variable speed.
What heigth for the wheel head above the kick wheel? LOML who will be using it is 5'4" tall.
The frame will be 2" square steel tube. I plan on using 3" double locking casters to make it mobil. Is this, about 9", too high above the floor to the top of the kick wheel?
Thank you for your help.
