    Can you imagine the sex toy that needs m12 bolts?



    I'm not sure if they need a hex head, I bet they could probably be done with a round head and a slot for a decent screw




    driver.

    dense plasma focus fusion device maybe?
    I could do with one to run the Delorean :)

    I read that and I'm not sure what an 'ultra-high' vacuum is? :-) Surely you can't get any more vacuous than a vacuum unless it has some extra 'nothing' in it!

  5. Peek is loverly to machine and they will be a breeze to do but for me its fitting you in I'm afraid :-(

    Most plastic "gas" and getting a full vacuum or close to full is (apparently) a tough nut to crack.

    I guess with a syringe it is possible to put a bit of hydraulic oil in it then evacuate all the bubbles put your finger over the end and pull a full vacuum.... I reckon with a larger vacuum chamber it gets a bit like the frog trying to cross the road by only jumping half of the distance remaining.... it never quite makes it across to the other side :)
    as the pressure drops there is less and less to remove.... at what point is there one gas atom left and how does the pump get the lousy fooooker out lol

    I believe you get the last bit out by cooling, after all a vacuum is actually about pressure caused by heated particles.
    Yes, it would seem that Peek has no gaseous content so is unaffected by long term vacuum. Strange how there are solutions to problems I never knew existed! :-)

    My friend said he is willing to pay 150 including material for the 12 bolts. A sample can be provided to copy. Is anyone interested?

  9. #19
    I can certainly make them for you quickly
    only on a manual lathe mind
    what pitch would you friend need?
    and what head? round or hex?

    I would be happy to make on reciept of material before being paid

    Ian

    Thank you for the offer Ian. BlackburnMark offered to give it a go just before you so I'll get in contact with you again if he changes his mind or something. Speed is not important since my friend has still not sent the sample!
