Any interest in new spindle pins?

Now closed-updated to cover those who had PM'd before I updated the thread.

I'll see about getting them yellow zinc coated also.




I'm having some made up, would anyone else like a set, it'll be about £25 a pair with nuts. They'll be the correct 1.25mm pitch nuts so perfect replicas of the originals.

List full!

Yes please, I'd like a pair. What are you doing about the lock bolts?

They're normally easy to reuse... I could get a price for them possibly?

Not sure what ur going to make them from, but I discovered you could buy plated grade 8.8 bolts for about £2.50 each, way cheaper than ht steel bar. I machined the ends down and cut the correct threads. I cut the cotter pin groove with a grinder and and finished with a file.

They're being CNC machined by a proper engineering shop. I forget the grade of steel off hand but the same as standard. I did think of stainless but it just doesn't offer any flex and is more liable to snap.

Where can you buy 16mm thick bolts that long for £2.50 from?

The local engineering supplies company, £5 cash for two.
They're not stainless, just high tensile, I work with stainless and must say I'm not really a fan either. It's alright for show, but I wouldn't generally use it for structural stuff.

That'd make sense as its dirt cheap(below cost).

see how much a m16x275 bolt is

Its more than these pins are.
