calcing the difference in sae diameters and wondering about the shape of the
bush after the slot is cut plus adding the fill factor of the red loctite why not just use these tubes as bushes. now I am using different triples on my suzie(50/54) but yet donot have them yet(still have the ninja triples)
here are the numbers from the charts.
2 inch with a .035 wall ,id = 1.930(49mm=1.92913,50mm=1.96850)
2.125 with a .095 wall,id=1.935(.006 diff but what is the manufacturing tolerences on these tubes +/-.
just trying to filter some info.
anyone wanting to fab these sleeves themselves, or to use a jobshop for the work is welcome to explore any method or material they care to chose, but of the people who have contacted me about fabbing the parts, nobody has mentioned using anything other than 6061 schedule 80 pipe, the same material i use. nobody has asked for a CNC file, for instance, so the sleeves could be cut from a chunk of 6061. i've always said that these sleeves should be easy and cheap, and they are if you can do the work yourself, or find the right machinist. cheap means minimal setup, and fast production.
