Hei guys. I‘m thinking about a miter jig like cobras or farrs. I want a jig that can miter chain- and seatstays. So my plan is to built it a little bit like the stay slayer. Because I‘m a hobbyist I want to built it at my own. Also because it’s always a nice way to do the thinks at your own.
Big problem are the v-blocks. I don’t know wich size I should use for the nut. I want a horizontal clamp because the miter center can be at every v-block the same. So these thinks I built already.
I also miter a nut to test the fit. This one works great with the thinner ends of chain and seatstays. Wich should choose for the big end of the chainstays to bb? Is a vertikal v-Block the better choice?
Thanks for all your ideas!
And yes there stucks something🙈
Do you have a 3D printer or access to one? On my similar jig I cnc’d blocks that matched the oval on my chainstays and it worked great because it was super solid. These days I’d try 3D printing those blocks.
Also, it would be great to see pictures of the whole thing when it’s done!
Yeah I will share the Projekt step by step!
Do you mean a plastic one ore a steel one? I have the option of a cnc mill?
Maybe you can show a picture of the clamps?
There is a photo here;
CNC’d aluminum is great and how I did it. 3D printed plastic would also work well.
Hei everyone i finished the project today! if you wanna see results you can take a look at my insta post.
