As I am fairly new here and not that good at finding things thru the search mechanism here on the Forum.
I would like to see who and what has already been done with the "Scale & Construction" of Knock Offs for CT90 wheels, and Friction Shocks that are functional as well as period looking. (Lock Off .....not functional.....looks sony!)
I hate trying to re invent the wheel if some else has already discovered that the best shape for one should be round.
Good Roads

Thanks Rhys
I knew Mike makes them, but we have not heard from him on the forum for so long??
And I think I did see your posts on Friction Shocks, but could not find post.
And I forgot that it was youth posted them.
Can you lead me in the right direction and possibly share some specs??
Thanks
Brian

Mike has been exceptionally busy, he rang me an hour or so back. As well as that there has been a lot of stuff which has discouraged a lot of older posters. I am just CK lonely. I will try to find my posts re the Hartfords.

Try "Fabricating Friction Shocks".

I got some standard 5/8-11unc wing nuts from McMaster & Carr that were reasonably period correct. I will have to weld tabs on to 3/4-16unf flange nuts to get a matching set.

Friction shocks are on my radar for use on the sliding post front suspension planned for my next project, a three wheeled streamliner cycle kart.

Can you post a pic of your wing nuts please?

McMaster & Carr is my "go to" place for hardware & material. Decent prices and it is on my porch within two days. If they had 3/4-16unf wing nuts I'd buy them instead of making them.
The 5/8-11unc shown are less than $6 each and have a nice as cast finish. I'll drill them for safety wire and call it good. Might make a tool for tightening them instead of using a hammer tho.

Thanks, they don't look too much like the knock offs I would use though.

No....... Too small, and remember they don't have to functional.
But, Thanks for posting Chuck.

Check out my build thread: the w154 Vulture. I have friction dampers on my front axle that I made out of bed slats.

Okay, after searching for "Spyder Washers" and trying to think outside of the box for their usage, I think I have figured out how I will make my own??
Friction shocks are now, not just a thought, but must for my Miller build!
And they will be functional!
