Turning thin disks on lathe

I was recently asking about parts for the lead screw clutch on a 12 x 36 Atlas. Sunworshipper replied the dimensions and I made the main part. I ordered the 4 simple and cheap parts from Clausing*, but they sent 2 of the wrong ones. So I think that I'll make those. They are .030 steel, 3/4" ID, 1-1/4" OD.

I'm thinking that I'll chuck up a small hunk of aluminum & super-glue the .030 stock to it. Then turn the ID & OD, in that order. Does that sound doable? Would double sided tape work better that super-glue?

Thanks, Bob

  • - Clausing is a great outfit: I ordered 4 clutch washers at about each & shipping was about . total, no minimum, no handling, etc. Some of their parts are very expensive, but you don't have to buy those.
