My 1971 Hayterette 3.5hp
This is my 1971 Hayterette in perfect working order, not too shabby to say it’s getting on to 50 years of age.
you can’t see it in this particular image but, the only issue is it’s missing one of the red plastic center caps from the wheels.
anyone have a spare? Or know of any for sale.
they never seem to show up on a certain auction site & would prefer not to go the route of another donor machine for the sake of such a small part.
Maybe you have a 3D printing company close by that is willing to make a copy from an original?
Henno, that is actually a very good suggestion I never would have thought of it to be honest.
i shall do a little research on local companies & see what I could come up with.
I know what you mean about buying whole machines for the sake of a spare part - spirals into making good of the donar machine!
One off printed parts are not that cheap, but it is a bit of a cottage industry with lots of people with decent printers these days.
As an aesthetic part with no load material will be cheaper too.
