465/205 race track clocking options??

I have read about 25 threads about this, but no one talks about or shows any pics of their finished work. I would like to hear how you did it and see some pics.
I want to clock it flat. (The front output of the case will not be used in my rig.)

So far I see two real options.
1) Buy a clocking adapter. - D.D. Machine did sell an adapter (maybe he still does) sounds like he’s not on PBB anymore.
2) Build your own. I have seen two examples. I think one had a cross member built into it.

I don’t want/need a doubler.


What you got?

Huh? Hope you are you being sarcastic…

If I were to make one, I was thinking of machining 2 chunks of ˝ or 5/8 plate for the mating surfaces and then join them with a length of 3/8 or ˝ wall tube machined to fit. I could clock to the appropriate angle needed. Then add some gussets and a mounting surface for the cross member. But that’s just me…

I want to see whats been done. DIY or pre made, either way.

I take it your vote is for pre made. Can you point me to a source?

the dd one is just a piece or 1/2". you counter sink the holes and use flat top fasteners.

i dont know what kind of tool you have on hand but every time i build something similar i have to do it twice because i dont have a drill press or better and shit gets crooked.
Tools (for me) are not the issue. Time is the issue.

So D.D. Machine is the only guy making these things?

I assumed that I would hear about more options. or at least see some cool DIY stuff.

This is still Pirate; right!?!

Maybe i'm just behind the times

How about a shorter version of draggbody's adpater from Jed's Machine?

I would guess that Jed's still has the files to make the figure 8 pattern.

D.D.Machine Clock Up Adapter

Anyone have any pics of the D.D.Machine adapter installed?

By adding the ˝” adapter plate do you loose that much in spline engagement into the coupler?

I need some pics of one installed to get a warm fuzzy feeling…
