A little hobby of mine that has accelerated since aquiring a mini CNC mill...



There is a market for 47-51mm disc adapters to take to old 47mm formula mount up to the International standard of 51mm
I've looked at reworking a +20mm rotor adapter but it couldnt work as i would have to elongate one bolt hole,this would prevent it from being tapped

Any help you can offer? :D
