Do you think a PU part would be hard enough? I realise a printed part wouldn't be very hard but it'll be easy to knock out a few spares. Anyhow, the intention of the post was to find out whether the idea is viable.
Yes that's another option. Though I think I would print a plug to give the hole the right shape and just give a finishing wet sand (I hate epoxy dust).Jyoder wrote: ↑Tue May 05, 2020 4:00 pmAfter cleaning the inside of the bar with drill-brush and water, I fill the center hole section with epoxy with micro balloons and with 10-20% added graphite powder mixed in and then carefully bore out the hole with a Dremel and sand carefully with paper rolled on a chopstick. So far works well, slides smoothly, and with minimal wear. No graphite dust on hands or line with use.
It is possible, but It was a pain in the ass to print it, specially with normalstring 3d printers, had to to it with uv resin, but still had a lot of problems gettinit sticking to the plate.faklord wrote: ↑Tue May 05, 2020 9:11 amI’m thinking about printing bar center inserts (for power lines to run through) for carbon bars.
Has anybody been doing this? If so, is it a worthwhile and is there a preferred material?
I’m expecting wear to be an issue, so would make something that is easily replaceable.
