Hi

Still trying to sort out details -- trying to source the making of some freehub brakemounts -- anyone that has had these made let me know the price the got charged -- just want to know i'm getting a good shake -- Brad says in the plans that they should be inexpensive but does not give a ball park cost.

Any input would be appreciated.:D

Thanks
Patrick

The first ones I had done cost me about $50 per unit. The other shop in town only wanted around $20 per unit. There were a few garage machinists that would have charged less, but they were really busy at the time.

Hi Brad

Nice to have a approx idea. I will set my sites on 30 or 40.

Thanks

I also drilled and tapped the disc brake holes. This job is not difficult, but may double the cost if you have the shop do it for you.

Does anyone have a machinist they can recommend for this work, ideally in the Seattle area but I'm willing to pay to have them shipped, too. My buddy talked to a machine shop today that estimated $360 for the job -- 3hrs labor @ $110/hr, plus the raw materials.

Thanks!

You can check out how I made mine, in my build thread (http://forum.atomiczombie.com/showthread.php/5676-Starting-my-Loderunner), assuming you have a welder etc.

For those who don't want to wait for their local shop to take on the small machining job, we have made a batch of FreeWheel and Disc Adapters...
