Fruitful rainy afternoon in the workshop
on: October 17, 2016, 04:15:41 PM
I hate the unfinished holes for the swinging arm spindle and engine mounting bolts.
As it was a rainy day yesterday I spent the time in my workshop making these.
(Hopefully a picture attached)

Hi Gatso

Yes, Delrin.
I drew them on CAD first so I can send you the drawings if you want?

The plugs for the swinging arm spindle use a piece of 6mm diameter alloy rod that goes through the hole in the spindle.  It has an M6 thread at either end and the plugs are tapped M6.  The 6 small holes you can see in the face are for a pin spanner to tighten them.

The smaller plugs use another piece internally with an o-ring that is squashed and hence expands as you tighten the screw.

I'm working on some for the holes at the very bottom too, but they have a very sharp angle.
