Lenco V-blocks
« on: December 04, 2017, 11:07:47 AM »
I need a new pair of V-blocks for a Lenco L-75, does anyone have a pair for me or know where I can find some locally? I really don't want to order from overseas unless I have to.

Thanks!

I had some 3D printed and they worked fine. My model didn't have the round stabiliser at the bottom, but didn't seem to affect the operation. Can't report on longevity

Okay I contacted the Centre for Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing here at the CUT and they can 3D print in all sorts of different materials. From my understanding the original Lenco V-blocks were a rather hard type of rubber? Am I correct in assuming this or were they a harder type of plastic?

I'm still waiting for a quotation from them, would anyone else be interested in some if the pricing is reasonable?

Got the pricing and if I order 20 blocks it works out to R860 for the batch, this is for a hard rubber with a hardness of 85A on the Shore scale. So working on the 20 quantity price it comes to R43 per v-block, the price will come down even more for larger batches.
At the moment I need 4 blocks, if anyone else is interested you can comment below.
