So I am looking into making the brass disk that came on the 1956 Ride A Matic and versamatic.  I can do most of the work in the machine shop I work at.   

 

What I like to know is are these brass or bronze or maybe ampco?  It looks like brass to me I am just looking for opinions or ideas. 

 

Also is there a interest in these?  I am looking at $50-$75 cost to sell them maybe less if the cost is not as much to make them.  First run will be 50 to 100 disk depending on my costs.

I will be looking into the fiber disk on 57 and newer RAM at a later date. I think I can get the cost way down on those depending on material cost. I am thinking $25 to $50.

Jerome I have a copy of the original blue print and will tell the type as soon as I dig it out. Good luck if you make them as I have 30 of originals ones here.

I heard of a guy who used an old boogie wheel off a ski-doo, just a thought.
