Last weekend was mainly about sprockets! H has made new spacers between the sprocket rings as I want to make a dummy cone shape to fit between the rings to represent the casting of the sprocket assembly. These new spacers are thick tubes so the bolts fit into threaded holes in the tube. As it has no flange, a dummy cone shape can be made out of nylon and slid over the tube. The inner ring has a split collar bolted to it which incorporates a keyway. The keyway stops it turning and the clamp bolt allows a little side to side adjustment!
We were looking at what nuts to use around the sprocket ring and have decided on three mm nylok nuts as they look the part. I have tried cutting them with slots to make them look like castle nuts which they should be but this wasnt very successful so plain old nuts they'll be, unless anybody's got any ideas???
More, as they say, as and when. Hopefully some work on the wheels next weekend :-)
