Re: Jig for drilling crankpin hole

Hi Julian

Have a look at this on the CLAG website http://www.clag.org.uk/crankpin-drilling.html

Good luck

Has anyone built one of these please? 1D3C0A6F-6FCC-4BE6-A763-A577B4284178.jpeg The kit requires a set of perfectly round and concentric wheels (of course :shock: ) on 2mm diameter axles.
