    I've got a pair of those old D44 external mount lockout hubs and wanted to see if any of our famous CK5 machinists can CNC the hub body. The big chrome cap that houses the plastic turn dial.

    And then would like to know if any machinists can make some new dials as the factory plastic ones never seem to last.

    I'd like to see the cap body and dials made out of 6061 T6.

    Any machinists up for the task? :deal: :thinking:

    i had a old set of warn hubs from my dads old 70 gmc 3/4 ton. all aluminum body with brass dial and steel inner cup and steel slide pins. then a bearing plate section held the stub shaft and had a reciving cup that locked all to gether when locked in 4x4 position.

    he had a 8.5 ft western plow on it for ever and blew i dont know how many shafts and joints. those hubs never skiped a beat 1 time. i might still be ably to get them for ya if you want those style.
