    I've recently been making my own drop-outs out of 3/16" 4130 cromoly using the drill press, bandsaw, grinder, and files. You need the right taps if you want fender/rack mounts or a derailleur hanger. A pair of simple front drops or track ends takes about an hour. More complicated rear drops with eyelets and derailleur hanger takes about two hours per pair.

    If you wanted to send me a full-size drawing, I'd give it a go. You can PM me if you'd like.

    Thanks, let me get the design drawn up and you can see what it would take.

    Try paragon machine works they may have what you need already, don't know if they do custom work.

    what's the difference between this post and the last time you asked the question? Did nothing pan out from the other thread?

    No, it panned out, I just wasn't familiar with the forum and apparently the thread didn't post immediately and I thought I forgot to submit it, then after rewriting it they both posted at the same time. Thanks
