Re: Chris' Build

The parts look great! 8-)

Looks like you have multiple options for the spacers (steel and aluminum).

Were they able to jet the part with the two holes and the angled cuts to the long edge. If so, that is awesome as making that cut with a bandsaw sucked.

Re: Simko's Weld Together OSG

Hi Simko, I just had my parts back from the laser cutters, and I was curious as to where there was anything to consider with the wheel set? I wasn't going to buy the OBM set because of price to get it to Australia, however, There is a set on ebay quite reasonably priced I was going to look at. Anyt...

Re: Simko's Weld Together OSG

After doing three grinders, I can say that each one was slightly different. I would get an assortment of 1/2” ID shims (0.060, 0.030, 0.015, 0.010) and start with all of the wheels with just a 0.060” shim between the wheel and the plate and enough shims to make up the extra space on the outside of t...

Re: Simko's Weld Together OSG

I saw on another post that you said you were thinking about getting the 30 pound gas piston, did you end up getting that weight or a higher strength? The 30# gas shock in the 'middle' position works perfect! Middle is in quotes as there are an even number of holes so there really isn't a middle pos...

Thank you for all of this. I would be interested in the new file for those spacers.
The as-built spacer drawings are in the Rev 3 or Rev 4 drawings about five posts back in this thread

Re: Simko's Weld Together OSG

I took the 3D file down as I haven't had a chance to make the same changes to it as I did the 2D file.

People have been asking for the 3D file, so here it is, but you will need to make both the REV3 and REV4 changes to have the 3D model match the 2D geometry.

Re: Simko's Weld Together OSG

Thanks for the response Dave. You are absolutely correct, the wheels that we bought from Origin Blade Maker did not have any spacers inside and caused the bearings to side load if tightened to much. We considered making spacers for in-between the bearings, but we both agreed that we wanted to also e...

Re: Simko's Weld Together OSG

Updated drawings for improvements we made while building. Also changed quantities and nest for one grinder instead of three grinders. I am sure that someone can come up with a better way to nest the parts and use less steel.
