if u have brass round rods /aluminum bar go to lathe shop,
there they will have a rotationg stone machine(!) that is used to sharpen drill bits,
make the spikes there and get them threaded at fabricator.
Kaushik, you are referring to the Grinding Stone
! If making spikes where that easy then we didn't have to break our head with those skilled labors now do we ?? even in those lathe's there are hardly few who can turn the darn metal to proper shape with accuracy and precision,so the last thing I'd suggest is a Grinding Stone
Anyways as always the spirit in you is what makes me happy
Thanks for those links, and about the help, I thought you had some hands on experience with these speaker stands and spike assembling, so thaught would take some help from you.
Now where did you ask me bout my experience
Like do you fix the spikes on you own???
Was this supposedly the all in one question where you are not only asking how to do certain things but also questioning bout my experience
Anyways yes I do have built some stands in the past for which I got all the parts machined when needed and such,I have not used granite though
!! drilling the granite is the problem,so have always preferred heavy metals plates (as thick as 10-12MM ) !
Well now that our friends have recommended Mr.Murthy to you,I guess you'll get all the stuff from him ! But still any help needed you are always welcome to get in touch with me !
One Q I had...why do you need spikes? I assume a typlical Indian setting which is on tile or granite or a hard surface
Is this question for real ?? ( Nothing personal,please excuse me ) We have already talked so much bout how the spikes ground the resonance energy etc etc etc,if you still have some doubts please refer to Asit's thread (pertaining to his stands) in which where they've talked bout whats the importance of spikes,and also bout 3 spikes Vs 4 !!
