Thanks guys your giving me some hope for this project, because while there is a will there's a way...I was clueless where to start!
I figured I would need something to cut the "pucks" from the stainless rod, but I have been trying to find a video to see how they are fastened and how the lathing works exactly.
The "puck" needs some tapering on one side, kind of coming up like a cone. On the top of the cone, it would then be flat and I would then have to have a threaded hole approximately 3/8" wide and 1/2" deep.
If you all know of some youtube video or anything at all showing a similar process so I can get a better handle on this I would appreciate it.
Also, just to get an idea of time, could you tell me what would be reasonable to estimate how long it would take to produce such a part for the lathing process, so we can figure out the logistics?
