I noticed that there are companies who sell those aluminum heatsinks to go on the hub itself while being locked to eachother with screws to make a 360 degree circle.
The problem is that they charge like $70 for them.
Is there an alternative? like a business that sells something similar but for another industrial use so we can buy it cheaper?
I don't want flat ones and they need to be with horizontal screw holes to be able to get locked to eachother.
It's also important that the radius of the curve is as close as possible to the motor that if any adjustment needs to be made that it will be only a slight bend to make it sit flush on the hub.
In your own post, you have describe the reasons that it costs $70: Don't want a flat one, need horizontal screw holes, correct radius.
Ask yourself how much it would cost you to make a set that would work, even if you bought ready-made aluminum extrusions at wholesale. The current cost of the ubiquitous CPU heatsinks are around $5 for a small square of just a few inches.
I think you are too used to the prices of mass-produced imported goods from China. This is a product made and designed by member here. He put a lot of time and energy into his original idea. He's shared massively with the community and deserves each one of those dollars.
Get a Cycle Analyst and a Multimeter, you're still a noob if you don't have at least one of each.
