    That's been pretty minor too, and cooling. Was more impressive actually seeing filters that were largely previously all over the place in testing really cleaned up and a lot nicer now. Even I think the Box couplings are probably a little better, don't sound half bad either, not intended for that though lol

    It wouldn't be if you read the dictionary definition of the term "sintered".

    Not even worried about a unit....I need a block for the 1060 and just sink everything, I guess one of those universal ones. And I don't know some touched a little on the shunt/volt stuff you could possibly get a little more out of it. Or something else I don't know hard to find anything on it.

    Actually I can see an issue with sintering; it deflates the hydrodynamic pressure that would normally support the bearing.
