  • Axle Washers

    I know sometime back there were some of these made up for the tapered axles. I would like to buy 3 or 4 sets if someone has them available, otherwise I will get some cut. let me know what you have.

    Thanks, Tom

    Josh, aka bashibazouk ,bless his cotton socks, started these with his "wheelbarrow" washers.We miss him.
    Tom, if you don't get too many responses, it may be worth creating a fresh batch.

      Worth noting, I ordered some of the 6CP75 washers that go between the wheel and the brake assembly from Skybound today. They said if they had a drawing or specification that they would have some made.

        Josh had several left at his passing. Does anyone know what happened to those?

            Someone else had them available, I thought. Josh's were too thick for my application. I might have one set for you, Tom. I'll have to check, (if you are interested).

              Looking back through the old threads Tim Hicks also made some or had them made. Back then the thickness that was talked about was .090. I measured the thickness of one I had that the tang is knocked off of. Its thickness id .045.

                In the old threads Josh posted about how many he had left. One of the last numbers I saw was 290, so I bet there is still plenty left.

                  Hank needs to see this for a definitive answer as he may know. Tom, do you want the ones I have, or just let me know once you find out the status of the others.

                    Marty, I would take them. It will buy me some time to find a source or have some made. I'm working on a few issues on this new plane I bought.

                      I know Josh made quite a few of them. I have a set for my 45 but don't think I have extras. No idea what ever happened to the other ones he made.

                        Tom, I wish I could be of more help. I have a set or two, but won't around my stock for a few months. If you can hold on I'll send you what I have when I get back home. I'll plan to get them to you asap.

                            Scott, I am talking about the 3/4" tab washers. I ordered some of the inboard washers that cover the screws from Skybound.

                              I bought some from a tractor supplier but they turned out to be too thick. In the end I welded a tab into a couple of AN970-10 washers as shown in the photo. Another option is to use a smaller ID AN970 and open the hole by hand file, leaving the tab. AN970 washer is about .063". The larger OD acts as a dust shield over the bearing and you can attach felt which turns it into an effective grease seal.
