Out of 6 hubs I've run across, 5 were toast. Cones are badly pitted, some so bad that they are unusable. Even when they can be ridden on, they are quite loud due to the pits & wear. How bout we get an idea of how many hubs out there could use a new pair of cones? Maybe we can look into having some new ones made up that are properly hardened and will last longer than the originals?

I don't have pics handy, so I borrowed some from this old thread on RRB.

What many cones look like, and this is one of my better ones. I've even seen them cracked:(

I've been needing new Races/Cones for years. I'll probably jump in if you have some made up by a machinist. I'll need 3 or 4 sets. Michael Siddons
My SW hub sounds like there is glass and gravel in the hub as it turns.
