Belly access plates

Post by Steve Norris » Thu Feb 16, 2017 11:19 pm

With the imminent release of the Panther A, i am in the process of gathering parts for my build.
I would like a set of belly access plates but do not have access to a lathe, can anyone suggest where I can get these items made or be willing to make these for me at a reasonable cost.
Regards
Steve

Steve

I've got the kit to make them. Would you like to pm me with what you had in mind? I haven't got any Panther refs so I'd need the drawings. Loved your previous Panther build blog.

Thanks Mark. A bit too big for my lathe but could be done on the rotary table. The others are OK for turning. All the best.

Steve, Mark, Stephen,

I have a Panther A on order and am also gathering parts. I would also be very interested in any parts produced if your thinking of running a set off and the price was good. I don't have access to a milling machine or lathe so this would be very useful and may make more worth your time and effort in doing it if you have more than one buyer. :wink:

Phil
