Matchless titanium rear wheel spindle and steel swinging arm pin

I’ve just finished making a titanium rear wheel spindle for a Matchless and a steel swinging arm pin. the wheel spindle took some concentration as at each side of the waisting in the middle is the bearing area, beyond that the shaft is 2 thou narrower to allow clearance whilst fitting, all very tight tollerences, just as i like it!

The swinging arm pin is steel, not my favourite medium! its in its bag as its all oiled up ready to go and i didn’t want to get oil all over my kitchen table, so you’ll just have to peer at it!
