Thjere's a half decent dimensioned drawing/sketch on the tech forum Jeremy. If you could turn them out fast on a CNC I'm sure that there'd be a good take-up. Regards

You're talking to the wrong bloke asking about computer links and things like that! Go onto the technical talk page and at the top of that page there's a thing that says 'technical talk - how to' Flick onto that and it's down there somewhere, a spiel about making Di wheel centres. They're fairly simple especially out of that nice HE free cutting alloy. It's just that the shallow rear face makes it difficult to hold when turning the shallow front taper.

Just read your article peter , all seems quite clear now and will be a doddle :D
One question
When you say 70mm is the major dia although it’s short of a couple of mm , what is the actual dia ?
I will be turning them out of 3” so any size is achievable under 76mm

Anyone else? I don't have an original to measure but I bet 72mm will be correct. Just looked at the rough sketches again and forgot about the spigot on the rear that you can part-off. That was a good idea from Smithy.

Anyone know why the mini spares repo centres have not been considered ?
http://minispares.com/product/Classic/W ... 0to%20shop
By the time you buy the material and badge when turning them up yourself they don’t work out much cheaper .
Any advice gratefully received

If the minispares repro caps are jbw ones I believe they are plastic whereas originals are cast and held on with a screw on the back, I am lucky as all my centres are useable after a quick clean, just need to fit new decals as they are discoloured.

Right I think I’ve got these cracked now but a couple more details req if anybody can advise please.
Spookerly enough I’ve just aquired a set of bargain D1’s and two of them have centres with part number WDO6635 , are these original ??
Other discovery is the 2” counterbore which holds badge also looks to have tapered walls ?? Similar to OD.
I can knock some of these up and will get underway in the next couple of weeks .
They will be HE30 aly and given a coat of wheel lacquer and will only need the badges available from Nick .
Will also supply same size retaining plates in 2mm thick stainless 3/4” wide which will be radiused to a dia of 57.5mm / 2.260” along with M5 Allen cap headed stainless screw.
Looks like they should work out around 5-7 quid each with about 3 quid postage will confirm this soon.
If anyone is interested pls let me know so I know how much 3” bar to order .
For the record the 4 wheels I got tonight are 3 off August 69 and 1 off March 69
Cheers
Jeremy
