for a 70's campy record high flange hub. it's a 116mm but a 120mm will be fine, blade can be flat, curved, no need to be correct or perfect.

Crab,
I have one here that I got from Alex Ries, That should be period correct. Flat lever, and straight tapper adjuster screw. I have not gotten to doing a refurbish on it. Normally I would tear it completely apart, and use a brass brush on a Dremel at low speeds to clean off any rust and residue and then clear coat to prevent any more damage to the chrome. And then re-assemble with light Campy grease. It will need a good cleaning or refurbishing. PM me Smiles, MH

Not even from a 40 year plus mechanic that does this stuff in his shop on a regular basis? Har, Har, Har! ( I need to learn Pirate speak. ) Smiles, MH

it would be certainly be an honor, kind sir! but i need something to do over the winter of our covid discontent, and i'm on the second viewing of "the crown" (my wife isn't a fan of good stuff like star wars or indiana jones which is worth watching over and over again..), so tackling a nicely rusted QR skewer is going to save me.
