[report] ACSS Manufacturing

Post by Arnaud » Monday 26 September 2011, 19:26

Here is the brief report abut the ACSS manufacturing

1 - first step : buying all components. Fortunately I found a web site where I can buy online screws, nuts, tapped rods, ... (all stainless steel ) Springs supplied by Rabourdin.
For aluminium rods, it's much more complicated ... sometime I find the rod in a shop, sometime on ebay, depending of availability

2 - cutting the aluminium components. I use my wood machine with a specific blade to cut aluminium parts

les pièces ACSS sont-elles livrées avec un plan d'installation. genre à quelle hauteur sur la chaussure ont fait les 2 trous. quoi faire comme modification préalable sur la chaussure avant de mettre l'ACSS. bref un bon mode d'emploi.

merci d'avance pour la réponse

WOW!

This is pretty awesome to see how the ACSS is actually made. :pray2: I've already done the necessary modifications to my boots, all I have left is to drill the holes to mount the angle brackets.

@Arnaud
Thank you for shipping out the ACSS kit. :D Hopefully they'll make a fast trip across the Atlantic to the US!!!
