Triumph titanium components
Done. here’s what 7 solid days of titanium looks like, doesn’t seem much does it?! 3 of those days were spent making the nuts, if only grade 5 titanium came in haxagonal bar it would save about 70% of the time. As it doesn’t they have to be carved from round bar, often each face of each nut has two passes of the cutter, on larger nuts this can be up to 4 or even 5 passes, and up to 1 minute per pass, 6 flats on each nut – you can see how it mounts up. But hey, its titanium so we don’t mind!
some of these parts are 7075 alloy, lovely stuff to work with, but not quite as clean as titanium.
