    26mm Shaft Clamp required

    Anyone know where I can buy a 26mm shaft clamp for servicing a shock.
    Don't mind if I have to order but would prefer it to be in UK if possible.

    Alternatively Ive seen a couple of posts where users have said DIY but haven't provided any info as to how to do it.

    I know Specialized do one (part S2018056) but I can't find a dealer that can order it or the manufacturer.

    Thanks

    Re: 26mm Shaft Clamp required

    Do you need a shaft clamp to clamp the damper body? Why don't you just clamp it in the vise by the eyelet at the bottom of the damper body?

    If you still must have the shaft clamp, any Specialized dealer should be able to order you one. I am really fond of the specialized shaft clamps because of the dowels between the two pieces that make them easier to use.

    Matty F, the part I need to work on doesn't have any eyelets or other means to hold it and I need to clamp the shaft in order to stop it turning whilst I unlock a locking nut on the shaft. The shaft is hollow so I can't risk squashing it.

    I many try another Speci dealer but the ones I tried said the part was dealer only.

    Best shaft clamp you can buy: Golfsmith Heavy-Duty Lever-Action Shaft Vise at Golfsmith.com.

    Several padded and unpadded jaws included. Almost infinitely adjustable. Not made for this use, but perfect for it in my experience.

    Depending on what your doing, you can simply make one out of wood.

    Well it's seems that the part from Specialized is dealer only.
    Unable to find any alternative and fox won't confirm the sizes in their sets so it's looking like my only option is to DIY with a block of wood

    Found that set on a few sites.
    Two problems:
    1. Its only available in the US not UK
    2. Its $115 which is a bit much considering I only need the 26mm for one job.

    Thanks for the link though

    Thanks for the offer but I can buy a block of alloy and a 26mm drill for less than it will cost to ship to uk. Only need the 26mm to adjust the gulp on the e160ta and was being lazy
    Will probably go with a wooden block just to get the job done quick & cheap
