It's still a ways out, but what capabilities do you guys have for cutting splines?

I would want to make one that would go from an NP241 planetary setup to a Rover LT230 (10 spline 29.56mm OD)

Also, I can make up a print if that would help things.

I dunno. Call home first. He cuts splines and if its something he doesn't have on file, a print is nice.  Takes any risk out if it. You'd know that if you understood engineering. :P

Right now I'm just looking for capabilities. You would know that if you could read

I can read just fine :P

Would it be done on a CNC setup? If so, what file type would be best?

Joe does all the machining for our 231/241 doubler setup. I would think he'd be able to do what your asking.

Yes. DXF file.

Doesnt need to be 3D or anything. He runs them on a Haas. Important stuff would be spline lengths on each side, if you want a taper between the splines, nominal OD, ect.  Is there supposed to be a bearing surface at the planetary end? There is on the 231.  I just bought a bearing race from central chain, had the end of the spud shaft turned to the ID of the bearing race, then pressed it on.

To get the best fit you would also want to supply Ritchie with the "gear change hub" that slides on the mid shaft in the 241 and the input shaft of the Rover

I have 2 spud shafts that need to be turned and splined as well, maybe Ritchie will give us a deal if he does all 3 at once? Mine are for 231 to 231 but setup should be close to the same.
