Metal Cutting help
Anyone local to me have the ability to cut 5mm or 10 mm thick aluminum into a specific shape?

i need to make a wheel spacer that goes between the hub and brake rotor on my super moto. stock is 10mm thick. i need one that is 5 mm thick or 10 mm thick. shouldn't bee too hard, and i can probably do it myself, but i lack the proper tools.

the piece will end up looking like #17 on this fiche.




any help is greatly appreciated. doesn't need to happen for a couple of weeks, but i wanna get my ducks in a row now so i can make dirt wheelies happen as quick as possible. I have a log to traverse so i can shut that asshole koorbloh up.


(yes, i know this is a fiche for a rear hub, but the idea is the same.

i was planning on tracing the current spacer onto a piece of aluminum and cutting out around it. bad idea?



are there machines that will trace and cut at the same time?

It looks to be a fairly simple piece that can be designed by someone with CAD skills in probably 10 minutes. Take that design, load it up into a CNC Machine (I know a couple guys that have one in their garage and I know there are a few on the forum who own/rent/have access to one) and just bring the necessary materials. X minutes later (I have no idea how long it takes to machine something like that) you have your custom piece!

Or just buy it from KTM or nigger rig it.

Find a shop with a Plasma cutter...should be el cheapo. Or find someone with a plasma cutter in their own shop. Cake walk!

I'd do it but I has no plasma cutter.

i'm attempting to african engineer it, hence the thread. i'd rather buy someone a nice bottle of booze for helping me with this than having KTM get any more of my money. each rotor bolt (#16 on the fiche) is $1.50 a pop.

*Um No!!!!! Wrong tool, too small, will get too hot, etc. etc. NO - something that small has to be CNC'ed.

Get out there and start selling more stickers, or grab dizzle and hit the corners on Aurora!

To see you dance, I'd pay $200. I'll make it rain up in this bitch. Shake it papi.

That's a steal! I paid $5 a pop for my rotor bolts a month ago. Luckily they let me return them after my bike was rendered rather useless.

If all else fails, I could potentially make that for you in solidworks and you can take that where ever. But my free time is rather tight right now.
