So ive no work to do at work on the lathes, so i made a headset cap for my mate. Matching bb cones to come......
Went for brass, as spacers dont really require strenght, and looks SO good and unique. Let me know what you think, what looks good and what else i should make!Photo

NICE work man.

You really should try to make a basic stem. Nothing wild but a nice, functional frontload with a flush headset cap area thing. Itd be rad.

Id need cnc for that, and right now all i have access to is a lathe, so that sucks! But i have plandms for an integrated hub guard for my eclat tech hub thatll replace the cone. Just need to get the right material in! That one should be nice though.... If it works!
And thanks g haha

Gunna have to be aluminium, easiest to get in. Ill have it on my oppo side though so i dont stick all the times in grinds, keep my gland on my regular side which i use most so ill have maximum slipyness haha

2nd one definitely looks better. Although I'd definitely go for aluminum if possible. You want as much strength in your dust cover as possible. Just to resist deformation and help prevent bearing failure. Other than that, they look pretty awesome. But it'd only be cool if you made them match the design of the head tube. :D

yeah but the aluminium is shit quality at work and will crush twice as easy. And the brass look awesome when its been machined.

yeah one of them is. Theyre not the greatest lathes tbh, the bit that holds the tool has a bit of play in it, and all the parting off tools had been broken so it had to be done by a bandsaw and then filed down. I'm about to see if they fit ok on my bike now haha
