Video of dropout parts being made
I made a little video of a dropout part being made, from design to finished part. This part is one of a few components that go together to make an adjustable swiveling dropout.
Metal & Machines are so cool.
Are you NC-machining the holes and power tapping the threads too?
Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.

Very nice, I love that machined finish.
Will you be getting them hard anodised?
How does the swivelling work? Does it pivot around the centre bolt hole, with the two left sided ones for tightening? I would love to see the finished item.

I'll anodize them, and then facemill the islands, as they are the contact surface with one of the other components.
I'll put up a picture of the rest of the dropout later today.
Nice video, thanks for sharing. BTW, I use Alibre Design too for my bike stuff.
