The inside has also been turned down to hold a spring:

Bottom cover has been mostly hacked apart and also has some slits along the perimeter (I love the indexing table):

The tube has a snap ring that places it flush with the face of the bottom cover:

Rubber membrane with a spring perch/50mm disc:

Tube goes inside the bottom cover, membrane goes on top:

Then with the spring on the membrane's perch followed by the top cover and the threaded bushing, you end up with this:

Weld the tube to your charge pipe and run a vac signal to the threaded bushing and you've got yourself a blow off valve.
looks good...I am so glad you said what it was, 'cause I kept looking at the progress pictures and couldn't tell you at 1st where the heck that thing was supposed to go !!!

Made a tentative start on the next little side project today. This is a scale 1:2 foam mockup/prototype, but you get the idea:







Since the small CNC in the shop doesn't have a tool changer (and I can't be bothered to re-zero the ****ing thing every time I swap tools) it doesn't have any of the mounting holes, fillets, or chamfers. It was just as well, since I have to change some of the dimensions and setups now anyway.

This is the cad model in its current state, and is pretty representative of the final product:

When I'm in working in my garage, I feel like I'm a Rembrandt, or Picasso, working in my element making beautiful things. Then I visit a Buchka thread and realize that I'm a retarded 4-year old attacking a piece of construction paper with finger paints.

Are you going to have to remove that plate bridging the two halves whenever you change pads?

Hah, thanks I guess. You're doing pretty good dude, don't worry about it. Our garage at home is no better equipped than yours. We just lucked out here that the school lets us cut loose in their machine shop.

lol, i think its awsome that your going to build your own caliper and mad props too, But wouldent it be safer to buy a proper cailper?

brembo's are semi cheap(2d hand) and you can find nice wilwoods used for cheap, i saw 6 piston wilwoods at the swap meet with finn for cheap.
look at the left top of the vid. full speed crash due to unusual brake pad wear.


IMHO i would never cheap out on brakes-

Alright I'm sending you some cad files. Along with carbon, but those two aren't related. I expect said parts to be back by Christmas.

I appreciate the concern. I'm not doing this because it's cheaper (it's not). Hell, I already own a set of R-calipers and adapters. This is a learning experience for me. If the calipers don't work, I'll happily use a commercial solution while I figure out why.

Btw, the guy in the you posted crashed because he couldn't be bothered to change his brake pads. And he was using commercial (stock) calipers.

If I deem the parts cool enough I'll make them. And I need to figure out who has a freezer big enough to hold a couple of rolls of pre-preg...
