You can get rotomould laser cut kits which are often used for thermosetting plastics. If you have a metal mould (assuming you can heat it correctly) you might be able to retrofit the mould to a kit like this:

solved: Just used two nuts on the end of each bolt to create an old school lock nut. Used that to then slacken the other nut, allowing me to adjust the bearing position 🙂 Hopefully that might help anyone else stuck in the future

I thought this was the standard version? It’s the standard files – and trying to follow Dave’s video for the assembly, but he appears to somehow tighten the bearing with everything else assembled and there just doesn’t seem to be the access to hold onto the bolt head to do that. Only option I can see is as you say. I have been assembling, finding where it clashes and marking the outside frame to where I think the bearing should be moved to, to get clean movement.

What version have you assembled out of interest?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for linking to this thread – some interesting suggestions in here but I can’t see anything about how everyone is tightening the bearing?

Are people welding the bolt to the plate so you can simply tighten a nut without having to hold the bolt? I can’t see how if leaving the bearings until the end, you can get access to the bolt heads to tighten the nuts?
