New Spindle Design

I’ve decided I want to have a new Spindle and Platen for my Omni, so I’ve drawn up a new design.

The basic design is the same as the original Spindle and Platen except that the Spindle will extend above what it now does and will be threaded. Getting left-hand threading is difficult, so I will stick with right-hand threading and find a quickie-nut instead of a normal threaded nut to hold the laps down.

I’m in the process of getting a few quotes for costs to fabricate it, and I’ll post the results of my quest once I have it in my hot little hands.
