Need not be in great condition, worn out or even spun splines are fine as I am attempting to use them for a pin-drive conversion.

With all the guys here converting to bolt-on wheels some one should have a set.

For now even a single piece would be useful.

Had some unplanned expense, of the $125.00 Hr CNC machine service technician variety.
Budgeted for about four hours which should have been more than enough.
My hired "Expert" really was not, at least for MY machine which he tried to service using procedures of another make.
Result, I get to pay for fourteen hours of which maybe three were productive.

So yes I am still trying to proceed with the experiment once my funds catch up.

There should have been some serious renegotiating, Richard.

Are you taking about the wire wheel adapters that bolt on the hubs? I have 4.

Any renegotiation now would end up in court.
First and last time I will use this tech.
I have ALL the manuals for the machine and suggested he treat it as a new install.
Nah, just jump right in and assume an 80's Cincinnati works the same as a current HAAS.
Then when that does not work out call the same Cincinnati support I could have called on my own, but bill me for it.
Getting older and losing patience with the smug all-knowing (Know NOTHING!) overpaid entitled generation.
May just sell all the CNC machines and give up having to depend on others for CAD, go back to building cars.
No profit in that either but the overhead would be less. ;-)

CNC manufacture has a lot of "Potential" but just does not seem to be working out for me.
