[DML] Angle Drives - the 3rd way



Hi All,

Chris Hawes nudged me to post on this topic although I hadn't planned on 
it. Somehow I don't think people will want to pay $215 for one of my 
drives now, but maybe I'm wrong :-)

Redesigned, sealed to the stub axle, single piece incl the big nut (no 
little circlip), and most importantly USER SERVICABLE. After one year of 
availability, no owners have yet contacted me for spares, but there's a 
bundle of new stub axle cables sitting on my desk here as I write this.

I EXPECT the cable to break at some point - hopefully years and many 
thousands of miles on. It's just impossible to keep the internals 
totally sealed and contamination will eventually cause the gears to 
bind. This is a design compromise, and rather than produce an insanely 
expensive 8:9 right angle gearbox rather than a pair of screw gears, it 
seemed the most obvious solution was to allow the owner to repair it 
when it failed.

Thanks to the change in exchange rate, what was $299 on ebay last year 
is now $215 delivered. Why so expensive? They are hand-made to order 
with no quantity discount by the firm who designed them for me.

Best Wishes
