As part of our process for developing a low-volume engine builds, we must get our rotary housings’ inner trochoid ground and lapped to a specific tolerance. Our designs require a less than [proprietary] variance in the epitrochoid of the rotor housing. (Sorry, I cannot share the details, this is information that is yet to be patented.) I will say that very few machine shops exist that can meet our specs. I only found one in Northern California. There was one in Los Angeles that did this work for Freedom Motors in the past, but they are out of business. Continue reading “A grinding we will go…”
I’ve enabled some new features on the FM blog. You can now register your own user name – this gives you the ability to add comments without having to put your username and email each time. Also, you can go back and edit comments you previously posted without time limits. You can still post anonymously, but it will only give you a 10 minute time window to edit the comments after it is posted. Of course, if you ever want to edit or delete an old comment, you can just shoot me an email and I’ll take care of it. Continue reading “New Blog Features”
Yes it is true, we are going to start collecting resumes (we already have a few). We have 2 positions for immediate staffing needs: an experienced machinist and a mid-career technician – these will be full-time positions. More details on the job descriptions and candidate requirements will be released soon – this blog post is the first announcement. I’m working on a job posting/application system for our website (and still dreaming of the day I can hire another IT guy to help me) where these jobs will be posted. In the meantime, feel free to send me resumes of anyone you know who is looking for work in these areas (my email is on the sidebar to the right).
That’s my only major update for today…but FM is moving forward and our plans are picking up momentum!
Best Regards – Dave
Sorry, I don’t have much to post today. It’s not that I don’t have things I want to report out, it’s just that I cannot at the moment. However, you will see some awesome updates in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned. Continue reading “Recap”
I’ve been struggling to find some cool stuff to post about Freedom Motors this week – mostly I’ve been doing paperwork related to our fundraising and its totally boring and I can’t even talk about it. So what else to share? Continue reading “M200X”
So I posted here yesterday about some of our plans, but I had to remove this post and related information in order to stay compliant with SEC regulations. There will be more information available in the coming weeks. I apologize for the confusion, but please forgive me as I am also learning as we move forward. Continue reading “Fundraising Status”
I want to re-post a long message I put up on InvestorsHub. I did this in response to questions that were being raised on that message board, as I was alerted to some concerns being raised. I decided to put a “status update” on the board, and now I am including a copy here (since there is a lot of information in the post). I will follow this up with some status updates for the week. Continue reading “Valley Air”
So on Monday, someone posted video of a “flying car” on Reddit, in this case a test flight of the SkyRunner, which is one of the many PAVs I have been following. Continue reading “A sad day for PAVs…”
I completed my trip report to my colleagues on the ReThink Methane conference. I do have to say I learned a lot about the biogas industry, and where most of the biogas projects are going here in California. Continue reading “ReThink Methane – Conference Report”
