Awesome Lucas!

Yeah, I've had a couple on which the stator laminates puckered a little. I've considered using longer screws - maybe 2.5 inch, but so far I've not encountered any ill effects of the pulled laminates. I simply put the opposite edge of the stator on an anvil and hammer them flat again. It doesn't take much to straighten them out.

One thing that I'll add to your suggestion of making sure that you've run the screws down far enough is to make sure that they are run down equally.  Even the slightest inconsistency can cause binding.  I always count my turns on each screw to make sure the force is distributed evenly.


I'm thrilled that someone else found this technique helpful.

Later,
