I just got my BSA a65 David Bird hard tail welded and was wondering where can I get some axle adjusters from. Do most of you guys make your own? If so is there anything I need to keep in mind to avoid classis newb mistaking. I (and the cat) have limited knowledge so any help is really appreciated.

Should be able to use a stock adjuster goes over the axle and the cup goes on the points of the open axle plate..grooved side against the axle plate ....looks like the picture

are these later model adjusters? the 1963 BSA swing arm on my bike had a closed axle plate w/ the adjusting screws on the side (rather than on the end).
