Shure, if they turn out ok, if you have any ideas for shape/size etc, then flick them my way (remembering that lathes make ROUND shapes, not square ones, and i don't have access to a milling tool at the mo,
(milled vorb-heads on the ends, now theres an idea, atlease you would get stamped with the vorb logo everytime you crashed!!)

My gear-deficient ride. It's humble, in that off-the-shelf sort of a way, but all good fun.
