    Started on a ox build but just haven't got enough done to post a build.
    I know eccentrics are only $3 but I couldn't pass up making these.
    Hex is for 1/2" wrench .187 deep with .060 washer to equal .250 space(probably need to mill a wrench to .18 thickness to adjust them)Hole is offset to print in openbuilds store.

    hey SJD, I also made my own eccentrics, using 10mm square steel bar. set it up in the lathes 4 jaw chuck to turn the spigot, then made a 0.8mm spacer to offset the holes and did that as a second op.
    now need to make a lot more (-:

    Nice David..I think we seen a challenge and couldnt let it pass by..i went with aluminum because my hobby mill works with ease..steel would be better choice but works it too hard.
