Zodiac Engineering

Old Towne Orange, California
Closing up after the first official day of being completely self employed here at ZodiacEng. After ten plus years of doing this on the side, I’ve left my day job and gone at it πŸ’―. Delays on my end for customers, the constant feeling of wasting time at the day job and overall desire to simply be here making awesome stuff for cool people pushed me to leave the security of the day job but I couldn’t be happier. To all my customers and followers, I truly appreciate your support and patience along the way. This move to full time here should help things speed up and run a lot better. πŸ‘Š Thanks! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Solid day. Anyone else still working tonight? The parts from a few days ago are back from hard anodize, Type III Class 2 MIL-A-8625 then went into the mill for final engraving.

Enjoying this much needed vacation, but looking forward to being back in the shop to finish up some things for G6. Who else is going this year?

It is simply my opinion that the best made stuff on ths planet is made by Americans. Americans of every race, color, and flavor… I’m not anti-Taiwanese, anti-Asian, anti-European, or anti-any other culture or race… I’m just pro-American - Ted Ciamillo πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

#FBF The High Flange version of the previously shown hub. Shell was turned from 3-1/2” diameter 7075 barstock. One of the very first hubs I ever made, roughly ten years ago. This one is still on my track bike with a matching rear track hub. All manually turned on a Graziano lathe.

#TBT Full 7068 front hub shell, axle and collars. Hybrid Ceramic bearings, Bluesix titanium screws and Smalley snaprings in the shell to allow honing of the bore thru rather than turning each bearing seat from either side. All turning and milling was done manually.
