Hi all, is anyone on here prodficient in the machining of stainless steel, and has all the tools to enable a piece to be made for my pop up waste. I bought a kit for my new kitchen sink , to match my tap in silk stainless steel, and it turned up with a shiny tacky chrome plated plastic finish on it, yuck. The knob is basically a square, with a large round hole in the base of it that the mechanism sits into. The ability to have it laser etched or whatever with the original manafacturers logo would be a nice touch if possible.

Any pointers appreciated

Nick

Hi Nick,
I have access to the facilities, except for the etching.
Post a pic for us and we will see what we can do.

Hi Hich, right hope you can make some sense from these measurments taken with my trusty aldi micrometer.

Basically it is a square piece of stainless steel with a stepped circular hole cut out of the inside to accomodate the pop up mechanism.

size = 42mm square x 15mm deep

larger outer hole of step = 39mm x4mm deep
inside hole = 25mm diameter x12mm depth from back of blank to bottom of hole.


piece to have sharp edges knocked off, but not too much, just remove the sharpness, and finished in a silk finish.


Hope you can understand what i am trying to achieve, Any help you can give me with this will be greatly appreciated.

Look forward to hearing from you

Nick
