James has been patiently awaiting a high rise stem for his Bonty drop bar project so I thought I'd share a few pics of the process from yesterday.
Laying out the dimensions on the table...
The stem will use a removable face plate for a 31.8 clamp diameter, an 1.125 steerer tube and an ovalized/offset stem body for better rigidity and support.
Once the tubing is pulled out of the stock, it's time to cut it up to rough lengths, into the cold saw it goes...
Once everything is mitered and cleaned, it's time to weld it all up... fits the table layout perfectly :)
Next, I tacked on the binders, silvered them in place with 45%, split the binders and plate with the cold saw, and ran it through the media blaster. Final pics once she's all painted up.
