We see how it goes and report back, just dont plan on doing it myself.
Difference was that I called them on the phone - they probably only check eBay messages from time to time and will get back to you sometime soon.
You might get a bit better price for 15 pcs (Wow! That's a lot!!) - I didn't ask for that many. They were going to make these up by turning down some thick-walled tubing, so I don't think there is an option to get a smaller number of long adapters made (one for each fork tube) but it might be worth looking into. Also - if you want 15, maybe they would consider jigging up the mill and just making 15 custom clamps in a short run. I can contact them tomorrow for you if you wish.
The size you need (1.64") is just a little off from 1 5/8" (1.625) but it's kind of an odd tubing size, so matching clamps are looking hard to come by.
I would be glad if you could teklektik, first because phone is much faster, second because english isnt my native language.
So we have 2.54 centimeters in an inch. Right size for 42mm dia of DNM volcano should be 1.653" if you think they could eventually run the milling machine that would be great.
Picture to make sure nothing is missing.
