    Hi Husky
    Hi Irving (I sent you an email Irving)

    Gee Husky sounds like you are on the right track to me. Belleville washers do fail after millions of operations, a common service repair for spindles in commercial use. For home use they should last a lifetime. And making something is always more satisfying than off the peg.

    Im looking to do something similar. I'd be interested to see more details on the spindle size and bearing arrangement.

    Is it a squeeze release or does it load the bearings when pressurised.?

    Is the spindle hardened and ground?
