    Maybe it was just a little too late at night when I came up with this.

    (Ignore the cross brace)

    I'm pretty pleased with how these stainless steel pulley shoulder bolts turned out. I even took a 3/8" ball end mill to the ends to lose an extra gram .

    Wow, nice work! I know DC is a master of the mill (and patience), but it's nice to know there are others who do quality work (unlike my hand filed hack jobs ).

    Syncros Steerhorns have an aluminum clamping wedge that snugs against the bar with a steel set screw. Eventually these wedges crack so I fabbed a few of them today.

    The ones in back are experiments, ones in the middle are the real new deals, and the bottom is the original part. The other picture shows how they fit into the inside of the bar end. The new ones fit exactly as the original parts did. Not the most sophisticated part but something I needed.

    Good to see you are getting around Pinguin. Cool stuff.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Looks like he milled the ends with the mill head set at the correct angle and then cut them to length in the lathe. Well, that's how I would do it anyway.

    Nice job matching everything up.

    Looking good! It is so nice to be able to crank out little stuff like this when you need to!

    Pinguwin, are you still in Argentina?

    I don't have any metalworking machinery myself rather I have complete access to a professional machine shop. I had some custom CNC work done on a Bontrager fork crown to accomodate the Comp fork legs. These guy do a lot of work with bicycles. We say of our bikes, "That's a '90 model." These guys do too, but they mean 1890. I had them do a little more work for me and they said, "We allow cyclists to come in on the weekends and use the shop." I replied, "I don't know how to machine." They said that wasn't a problem and taught me a ton of stuff.

    I can go in anytime I feel like weekday or weekend and use all their machines as long as they don't need it for their work. Anytime I need help on how to figure out how to do something, these guys will spend the time and don't even charge me for materials, wear on cutters, etc. They just love to see bike stuff being made.

    That said, I didn't tilt the head on the mill as they said it takes too much time to get it back perfectly vertical. I was poking around their shelves and remembered they have a ton of precision blocks, cylinders, and wedges. So, I used the wedges to get the angle right while the mill's cutter was still vertical.

    I don't do as much as I want on the CNC machine as they would have to spend time making sure I get it right and don't run the cutter into the vise or some such and also, it's usually in use with their work that actually keeps the lights on.

    I've got some other stuff I'll be posting soon. I'm currently working on some ideas for taking some art work I generate on the computer and having some fun on the CNC machine. Hmmm, I wonder if I could....

    I am back from Argentina, for better or for worse. I lived with a woman for a year there and miss her a lot. When I got back a friend said, "Your not with her. Let me guess, one word: Kids." "Yep." Sigh....

    What's the benefit of keying them? I was always told that the benefit was slim and it was possible to mess up the threading on the fork if the hanger gets knocked in a crash.

    I hate when non-keyed cable hangers twist when adjusting the headset... But before cable hangers I'd have to guess it was there to help the headset stay in adjustment?

    It just occured to me that its purpose was to keep the OEM front reflectors facing straight ahead.
