I made a new thread because I figured anyone who had a hub would’ve already read the previous one and had stopped tracking it.
I am making a last ditch effort. I’ll buy a profile hub, in any condition, as long as the splines are okay and the spoke holes aren’t shot.
I’m planning on putting a pair of expanding steel lock pins through the hub shell and axle, so I don’t care at all about play in the keyway. Edit: I tried this out 4 times today on my frame, it’s extremely easy. I can describe the procedure for anyone out there who would like to know. All you need is a decent accurate drill press, a vise, and the right pins and bits and a hammer.
PM me if you’re interested.
