Hey all

After looking for Ringle mojo cantilever hangers and having no luck, id thought why not make some?

Oh how nieave was i!

Thought, metal, machine, done? naaa, so handing my dad a mojo saying can you make this? its all began, the ringle mojo was copied exactly and programed into sold works cnc package, this was then imported into a water jet machine , which had a different software package so it had to be done again, after many weeks off messing and practice runs we had something looking rite,

A new programe was made to cnc machine out the back off the mojo with new dimentions as the titanium is 0.7mm thinner than the alloy ringle ones.

After many taps broken as a crazy amount off jigs made to do the simplest jobs .

Thanx to my Dad - For design and manufacturing
Gordon for the designing off the package,
Graham for the ace pictures

More parts are now in design stage, - watch this space..

Here we have a Titanium TiJo.

Bloody hell, lots. As Doug has been talking about jigs I'm going to guess that it was made in lots of operations rather than banged out on a 5 axis machine so man-hours a plenty! :)
