Seeley titanium wheel spindles (axles) and engine mounting bolt

I’ve just posted off this set of titanium wheel spindles (axles if you’re not from round here!) and front engine mounting stud with 7075 alloy nuts.

The ends of the spindles (axles) have steel plugs in to ward off suspicious magnets. The engine mounting stud is 1/2″ diameter so i could drill it through with a 1/4″ hole. All the nuts are drilled for lock wire.

To get the hole in for lockwire I mill a flat to give a face to centre drill and then drill through. Its all a bit fiddly but needs to be done.
