Very decent of you old chap. (re the bidding)

If I win the 9" slicers I will of course take and post close up pics, however if I had the tools to produce the slicers I would use blind SS M5 riv-nuts and threaded SS bar to bind them to the wheel.

I will make some enquiries about cutting tools and get back to you, we use lazer glass cutters that may cut >1mm aluminium, don't know how much thicker it will go though.

I am assuming you ask how the BS is fastened to the wheel, especially when you make them from scratch. If that's what you mean then I only know of one way and that is to basically clamp the two slicers together, sandwiching the wheel / spokes.

To do this you will need to produce the correct adjoining bar length, which will need to be thread (die) both ends (M4 or M5) and bolted to the slicers using cap head or blind rivets. You can of course use larger dim bar and tap the core at both ends and fix with csk M4 / M5 machine screws.

If you mean how do you fix a one sided BS, I've used three two hole tapping plates, equally spaced on the BS / wheel and clamped it over appropriate spokes. Can do sketches if needed.

In short, your clamping through or on the wheel.

Soz if this long winded explanation doesn't answer your question, hope it does.

Oh by the way, I've just noticed that our American cousins call front mud guards bacon slicers, thought they were known as pedestrian slicers.

No, 1mm BS isnt thick enough, but I was just saying that my laser glass cutter will only cut 1mm alu plate, I don't know if it will cut greater thickness with mods??

Re making BS plates. how about using a mechanical fret saw rotating / pivoting using a solid bar, set at 14" then at 9". The rest would be easy.
I may give it a go and document it for the forum.

OOOHHH......I'm on the same page now, although to be fair we were reading the same book.

I can see why the standard design would be an issue for your setup, you would need a deeper blade or smaller holes.
I look forward to taking a peek at your finished BS.

Cheers.

Yep, they are....stupid price though, but I was damned if I would loose them. Will use them as a template to produce a couple of variations.
My f wheel is a 19", so the 14" BS will do just fine without over powering it....I hope.

After the front end is done I'm re-wiring and a couple of other bits and bobs ready for Prescott, earlier if the Mike Hailwood Memorial Run is on this year????
