    Well, I had one somewhere but couldn't find it just when I need it putting my project motor together.
    They are expensive on ebay and I don't want to wait for one so the next best thing is to make one. Took a stab at the dimensions from a picture and drew it in Solidworks and wire cut it (edm) and presto it should work:) IMG_20181229_193017 (Large).jpg

    Don't forget to machine in the two little groves along the edges which help keep it centered between the buckets

    I wouldn't mind having a steel or stainless steel one. The E-bay ones work fine, but are cast and brittle. I had to dig pieces out of my oil pan a few years ago. Of course a rag in the chain tunnel would have made that a non issue for this dough award recipient.
