I have all my parts together for my first tric.
I am happy with all the parts except the computer discs I would like to tweak. I am realizing probably more than one of you have already been down this rabbit hole.
The computer discs I got with my parts is a tube with even grooves. Legend has it that the one disc was removable at the far right.
As per this photo you can see at least a wider groove at the end of the row. This is actually the edition of Tric I want to build. I have collected the jeweled crowns, got a leather strap, grill and the flat handles I can cut no problem I think. I have all the rest. I was lucky to come across some upgrades etc.
I had some friends at a local machine shop help me draw a cad for the pieces as I imagine it. I shrunk each disc just a little and kept the same gap. Then have one separate disc the same dimension.
Anyone have any thoughts on this being the best guess for all this. I got quotes for machining OMG very expensive…sigh. One or two which is all I need would be pricey. 6 or 8 get to be reasonable but about 100.00 per set. Grrrrr and that’s with me supplying the 1.25 inch solid aluminum rod which I already have gotten.
Maybe someone already makes these or… I want it to look like the photo with a wider gap and removable disc. Thank god this is an OCD forum or else you guys would make fun of me. Go ahead actually I also luckily have a friend that is sending me a disc row that is made from solid aluminum so I could just go easy and cut the last disc off carefully and see if that works.
