Alloy spacers required making please..

Post by Tramp » Sun Dec 06, 2020 10:48 am

Okay I've been busy adding yss pd valves to the xt660z and we'll I need x2 alloy spacers to go on top of damper rod and the yss valve..

Outer diameter is 36mm inner diameter 30mm so would think 4 to 5 mm thickness

The height of each circular ring spacer is 10mm..

Something like in the link above... So any engineers on here?... Pm me a price for say 5 sets so as to make it worth while.. Etc..

Could be 35mm outer diameter as I can find alloy tubing but have no chop saw lol...

Cheers..

I've got a very nice Myford Super 7 lathe you are free to use Russ if you know how to operate one ? I'm still struggling with the handbook. :D
