    Anyone got a lathe at home

    I'm working on a project and need something made up on a lathe but don't have time to go see an engineer in town. Thought I'd see if anyone on here can make it first.

    I need 2 bushings made up about 40mm long
    OD 18.3mm nylon or similar material
    ID 9mm bored through the center
    A 12mm diameter hole bored about half way through the depth

    More Accurate measurements to come

    anyone able to knock one up at home for cash?
