A few pictures of my sprockets being modified- only one side of the panther sprocket is removable - As I don't have a lathe or the skill to do this I sent them to Steve Winstone - many thanks Steve your help is most appreciated.
Sprocket after 12 years of running- this will be machined off

Hi David,
Are these two smaller hooks on the engine hatch the genuine Armortek's parts? If yes, what is the part code?
Happy building!

Best regards,
Lerh Chang

Hi,

I will check and report tomorrow Chang

Picked up some good quality Secondhand G clamps today - as I never seem to have a large enough clamp.

Hi,

Spent some time over the weekend assembling my sprockets, 128 fasteners later and £100 less in my bank job was done.

Beautiful sprockets! :D

Is there a specific reason for making the entire outer part in one piece, rather than a ring and hub as on the inside?
A little too much is about right...

Hi,

Martin Hofmann would be best positioned to answer why not but I suspect it's down to less machining cost and no real benefit in a two piece design as steel rings will not need changing.

Hi Chris,
Hi David,
David you are absolutly right, that's are the reasons why i don't made 2 parts. Only the recess between the teeth and the castellated nuts are simulating that this will be 2 parts - but not really.
This will be a very good looking Jagdpanther. Keep up the good work, very interesting to follow.
Regards Martin
