This is the last of the car bolts i’ve been on with. They do something underneath the car, holding arms and brakes and stuff like that on. I’m not really up on cars as you can tell, they have too many wheels for my limited brain capacity and weigh a lot, i know that for sure! Anyway i don’t need […]
I’ve made these titanium brake caliper bolts for a car, i think its a mini, but it could be a BMW, though they are much the same these days as i understand. My customer has a few of each so i’m not sure which these are for!
Those good chaps at Moss Metal Finishing need another batch of M8 posts to bolt items to the jigs they use to suspend them in the solution tanks. They are straight forward to make if a little time consuming and fiddly, there’s a lot of tool changing ect. but they have to be titanium to withstand repeated dunkings in the […]
This is the last of the current batch of Yamaha R1 titanium parts. Its the oil cooler bolt. I always enjoy making these as they are quite stunning when finished and a shed load lighter than original.
Here’s a couple of titanium M24x1 steering head stem nuts and M14x1.5 flanged bolts hot off the press! I’ve started putting the dimple in bolt heads a standard now unless they need to be flat topped, just because it doesn’t take too much doing and it looks a lot more trick.
This is a Yamaha R1 swinging arm spindle with nuts and washers I made. The shaft was a bit of a challenge, but i’m pleased with the way its come out. The main trickiness of it was getting the fat thread right, without the frame to try it in i had to cut the thread to match the OEM nut, […]
I’m on with some Yamaha R1 titanium bits now, here’s
These are for another customer, its that SP time of year! The rear titanium wheel spindle is a monster, its 350mm long and bored 19mm. But it has to be all drilled from one end as the thread for the nut is 22mm so its a 14mm hole through there. My previous post about wearing a hard hat when boring […]
My customer has an Ohlins steering damper for an SP2 and wants to fit it to his new billet triple clamp yokes on his SP1 but the stem diameters are different. So i’ve made a shouldered nut to take it. Also the original anchor for the bracket wouldn’t work so i had to drill and pin the bracket to stop […]
so deep, under the Health and Safety at Work Act – Working from Heights, i ought to wear a hard hat! This is an SP2 rear axle, bored 19mm x 330mm deep all from one end. I need lunch.
