Yamaha TZ titanium axle set
This is what i’ve been working on all week, a set of titanium wheel and swinging arm spindles with 7075 alloy nuts for a TZ Yamaha. There is a 7075 alloy wheel spacer and 2mm thick shims which i will post separately later.
I’ve just recently had to buy a new drill sharpening machine as my old one was dead, so i tried it out on the drills for these spindles, man its ace! It cost an absolute fortune but what it saves in time and effort not to mention anxiety its got to be worth it! I used to get a bit up tight when coming to bore big spindles like this that have to be drilled all from one end, its very easy for the drill to wander particularly if it gets a bit too hot down there, but with the drill angles right and it nice and sharp they sailed down in a straight line! There is still several hours of fun in boring them.
