1/2" Pete. I've ordered up a length of steel stock, should arrive by the weekend.
All I would do is put a decent knurl on each end, loctite the end into the clutch arm and glue the other end into a drilled plastic ball (or cut a thread on it and screw the ball on)
Material arrived Monday and I've got knobs on order too, so I'll make up the new one this weekend.
By the way, I went down to G and M Tools yesterday and I'm glad I didn't take the trailer with me, I could have spent a fortune!
Nevertheless, I did get the change gear spindle thingy I was after and also a new gear lever/speed chart for the top of the headstock.
Nice day out too, lunch by the seaside and traffic not as bad as it might have been.
Always the way
I plan to return!!!
