Re: A new shift concept for the engineers....
The more I mess with it...the more confident I am: it's going to work!
I got the programs for all of the sprockets done today, and cut a few 52T sprockets. The Stainless is a real pain to deal with compared to Aluminum.
I had to run the cutter around the tooth profile twice at a slooowww speed to get them clean.
Heavy duty 410 chain fits perfectly.
Tomorrow I will make the rest of them, and post pics of the clusters.
I'm going to polish these to a high luster just for grins.
The pics below show a 52T, beveled and ready for service.
