I have a KISS wind generator wind generator that develops vibration at certain wind speeds. The problem is that there's a PVC fitting that goes over a 2" stainless schedule 40 support pipe that is loose fitting. I want to machine one with a sleeve bearing on a lathe and make it out of plastic. However, I really don't have any experience machining plastic, I've been looking atunder Raw Materials/Plastic Material/Rods for 3" material. To keep costs under control I'm looking at the following:
Nylon Acetal UHMW LDPE HDPE
Comments on the machining qualities, UV resistance, and overall strength of these would be greatly appreciated.
