  1. Yesterday I did some trials, but I cannot get the round parts good. I give up. Maybe it is easier to re-use the brittle parts with a metal collar around to keep everything together? Maybe you can try 3d printing through shapeways. They also print in metals (like stainless steel).
  2. I'll think about it. I just used my lathe this weekend to make some bearing holders for my M38. My original tyres are in bad shape (unfortunately), so I bought some wheels with off-road tyres with hex mount only. The original rear bearings should be held somehow, so I made an aluminium part that will be mount to the wheel and perfectly holds the bearing. I'm thinking of making your parts from aluminium, the thing that is holding me is the ball shape part. On my old "vintage" lathe you should make a round shape by hand (or you need a special ball adapter, I don't have). What bearing do you think to use? 8mm or 10 mm? I think both are possible. Maybe I can try this Wednesday. I'll keep you informed.
  3. Interesting setup. I do have a lathe (a 40 year old one), but very little time. Do you mean to rework the existing parts, or make new ones from new material? If it i only the making of the 8x5 opening for the bearing in the existing part, this won't take much time. I recently bought some new wheels with hex mount, which cannot be mounted directly on the M38, so I was thinking of a ring for holding the standard bearing from the M38. Your suggested setup looks better. When I found some time and have created something, I will contact you. Maybe I can make something, but please don't count on it. What front wheel part is the one in the picture? Btw, thanks for helping me with the other suspension and steering parts!
  4. @Johan: Thnx looking really cool. I'll try these on my M38. Only need to think of a solution for the front wheel mount. Can be solved.
  5. Wonderful M38!!! Respect! What wheels and tires did you use? I like the style.
  6. Hi Waterbok, I'm from The Netherlands, so not too far ;-) I stil have the left one, but it is in bad shape. Both would be perfect! And as mentioned in another thread, i'm also looking for the J-1 part ( part of the WW1 servo saver). It would be great if you can help me!
  7. Who can help me with a right side front suspension arm for my WW1 ?
  8. I would be a bit careful when using Stainless steel screws in aluminum. This can give heavy corrosion of the aluminum and "eat" the aluminum away.... Best combination with aluminum is zinc plated screws!
  9. Hi, I'm looking for the same J-1 part. Anyone has one left?
