Access to a lathe

Postby Phaeton » Sun Nov 08, 2020 10:22 pm

Anyone got access to a lathe? I need a couple spacers making, nothing complicated, I'll supply a rough drawing, basically 2off 30mm diameter tube with an 8mm clearance hole through the middle about 30mm long, but will confirm it all

Alan, my kit came with some rubbish mild steel crush tubes, I could see these going rusty and binding fairly quickly. I had some made in stainless, the machine shops usually advertise on ebay. Have a chat to Vic, if you can't see the size you want drop him a line.

I designed a radial mount for my eise calipers to fit the sierra hubs, sent the .STL file to this chap who produced it on his mill and posted out really quickly.

Thanks Chris, that's brilliant, always thought there must be a need for such services, but finding them is very difficult.
