Default Fujinon 14 x 40 x 4

Anyone know where to get a motor for one or where to get the motor rebuilt ?

Keith, You might find what you need at Baker Marine on Shelter Island Dr. San Diego. Right near the San Diego Marlin Club. Have a great season.

thank you Simon

was abble to repair one pair myself after i figured out how to disassemble it and works fine.

Pulled the second pair apart and was surprised how new looking it appeared to be inside.

Spun the motor and bearings feel great.

Going to get the oms meeter out later and see if i can track down the probblem.

I recently took a 5-K camera over for repair to paul's photo in Torrance and decided since it was not HD it was basically trash. while i was there i found out they do gyro repair.

I gave them my gyros instead of shipping them off to baker for an estimate for repair.

month later i was told they had sent the to 3 diffrent Fujinon repair shops and there was a bad motor and no more parts are available.

So i called Baker and they also said the same thing no more parts available.

seems to me they could be forcing owners to upgrade to newer models ?

I've become a professional at allot of things i have not wanted to and i'm not tossing 10-K out with out an effort.

I could not find a manual on how to disassemble them and will make a video of how to and load it up for other poor bastards lol.

I have a set of 14x40 stabiscopes (the older ones like you have with the 9v motor). Baker Marine replaced the motor last year but it cost close to $1400. The motors, if you can find them, are not cheap. I went ahead and bought a set of the newer 12x40s but the older 14x40s just seem more comfortable even though they are significantly heavier. Maybe I just have to get used to the newer ones.

I to like the older ones and 1500 for a motor seems excessive since i looked inside.

not sure of the amount of labor involved but i can disable them in less than 5 minutes.

hopefully i can find someone who can rebuild the motor.

I have also been searching in Japan using the translator.

i'll call baker again and ask them if they can give me any insight on a place that can rebuild the motor.

as i understand it the S1440 are a military addition and one of mine says property of USN Property NAVship R&D Center.

One of my customers makes detonators for bombs sigma power low to high voltage and i will ask them if they can help as they seem to build all by hand winding.

I will shoot some pictures after work of mine disassembled.

I also have a set of 10x40 stabiscopes that are great. I got these as military surplus.

I am bring this thread back alive after 5 years....

Perhaps you guys are no longer hanging around here, but I'll give it a shot.

I read that you had pictures of a stabiscope disassembled. You also mentioned you would shoot a video. Do you by any chance have these somewhere? I can not find them online.

I have a Stabiscope S1440 and curious about the internals. I also have a Techno-stabi TS1440, but the Stabiscope has superior stabilization so I want to understand how I can keep it alive for the next 30 years...
