    Very, very impressive Gavin. 70 hours? I would have spent 700 and still be fussing about!

    Extreme pucker factor in the bottom end sometimes, around 100 mph / 160 kph at Mallala and faster at the longer tracks like Eastern Creek & Phillip Island, all from 125cc.

    In the wet it's the same speed but with no visibility or grip.

    Eskimo, now just print it out and compare the 2 in the mill. LOL
    Seriously though, You could just mill the other side out plug the old holes and give it coat of paint, no one would ever tell.

    Nice work and looks like great fun Gavin.
    I have a race kart frame with wheels etc, here we picked up for $250. We plan to put a RM125 water cooled motor in it for the paddock. We have the wet weather tyres to put on it so we hope to get enough grip in the dirt, but it's just for fun and the son will be wanting to drift it etc.
    The local Kart track is 3 minutes away at West Wallsend, I don't think they have your size karts on them. I know they upgraded it a few years ago so I am not sure now.

    Glad you bought it up and not me Dave, But if eskimo has a mill(is it for a mill or a lathe?) just run it backwards(which in this case will be forwards) if it has a backwards. If you have a camloc lathe you could run it backwards in that as well.
    Did I confuse everyone?

    Looking at it again, Stuart is right there and you will have to run it backwards, even if you do change the grub screws to the other side. The tool should have been on the other side of centre to run in the standard forward rotation of a mill.
    It might still work, but you might have to change your grinding angle to suit. I think you would be better off running it backwards which wouldn't hurt anything.

    I forget what it was a few months ago, I made something that took hours and found I made it the opposite way around and ended up having to bin it, so your no alone in your mistakes Eskimo.

    Stuart
    He has the same mill as me only it's a different brand. They come with reverse as standard so he should be right if he wants to go that way.

    Now you have it worked out, time to give it a go and post up you results.
    Fly cutters leave a beautiful finish on almost anything, especially aluminum.
    If you do any long cuts in steel, you will find a bit of coolant sprayed on to it to keep it cool will make the edge last longer. Other wise from one end to the other it will cut shallower as it wears and the surface will be uneven.

    If the weather down their is anything like it is here today,
    No wonder you messed it up, rushing to have a beer and cool off. LOL
    Don't worry we all scrap parts.
    Did you try to grind a tool for the one you already made?

    To much time on your hands?
    To many tools?
    More than a little anal about damaging the spindle taper?
    Build yourself one of these..... hey it is a woodwork forum

    When fitting my 4 jaw I always hated trying to get the camlock pins lined up without bashing the spindle taper.

    I will turn a bit more of a taper onto the ends of the pins to help it line up easier as they droop a little sometimes.
