    Acrylic is comparitively hard for a thermoplastic.

    One could use 3 pieces of tape on the bottom to form a tripod a few thousanths thick in order to keep the base off the working surface.

        Could be interesting - sapphire has a Mohr hardness of 9.
        Yes, you can machine it with diamond tooling, but slowly and under water.

        • Iphone screen protector gorilla glass. Still need diamond to cut it without shattering probably but it already has an adhesive on it.

              Find a friend with a waterjet to cut you a 'donut' of gorilla glass.

              • My import boring head has both inch and metric screws. Kind of annoying. I took an old Ironhead Sportster pushrod and made this T-wrench so I have the right ones at hand.



                My Craftsman 6x18 is currently in storage. There are times I still want to use those little chucks and faceplates. I took a 1” bull plug and made this 1x10 adapter so I can chuck them up in the 8” chuck on my ENCO.

                  I don't know what Bob's would be like to use, but the optical punch from Grizzly works great for me.

                    For the sake and mental health of Sportster pushrods worldwide, i hope the pushrod was already damaged or bent prior to your modification.........
                    nice work by the way...

                        Naah, it'd vibrate too much & be too slippery from the oil leaks to tighten anything!

                          Yeah, but it would be classy while it did that. After all, it's a Norton!

                          At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

                            And it would go round corners and have decent stopping distances.........

                              Yeah but it wouldn't look as good.
