Step by step machining of a custom BMX style hub

Published on Aug 18, 2012 by 

Covered is a guide on how I made a new wide flange custom bike hub. It includes detailed instructions on the machining process.

Questions welcome

This is part of a recumbent trike project that’s an off-road 3-wheel drive monster. This will be covered shortly on my website.

Warning: at one point the hub is polished on the machine, this is a risky move and I took a few steps to ensure my safety. It is not suggest for people to try this.
