Default SADFab Into Thread



Some of you may have seen the link in my sig, or sean’s but this is a public announcement of a project that started as a joke and seems to have actually created something useful. Our focus is on openness and sharing innovation and designs, and we are not in this for profit at all, just to advance the development of DIY and affordable products for the miata. We aren’t here to compete with vendors, and if any vendor feels that we are being harmful please let me know. Our goal isn’t to hurt any business, but to enable the average DIYer to create cool stuff.

What is SADFab:

Shitty *** design fab. kidding. It started as a joke in my thread hi_im_sean, aidandj, deezums fabrication. (Name credit to sean: https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...4/#post1264352) It has turned into a community effort to design affordable parts for the Miata. We will sell some of the parts that we design, but for the most part we will just be sharing designs. If you visit the website you can see that everything we* do is open source and available for download.

SADFab Designs

This announcement came about because we actually have a product to sell now. As shown in Sean’s bushing thread we are now making and selling delrin bushing kits, and bronze bearing conversion kits for poly bushings. These are not proprietary, all of the dimensions are posted on our site and anyone can make them if they want. But if you just want the easy button email us or PM me/sean and we will make it happen.

Head over to the bushings thread to read more about the delrin bushings, or the bronze conversion kits. Then contact us if you want in.

I will update this thread with any new projects we throw together or anything fun that happens. If you have any designs that you want to share, or add to the SADFab umbrella let me know and we can add them to the website (with credit for you of course). We want to create a repository of useful designs and files that anyone can use.


*brake brackets are not open source because they were not designed by us. We may try and work something out in the future with those.

**We are not a vendor, and we are not responsible for anything that happens because you used our designs

As of now we just plan on supplying dimensions (which were not measured from any existing products for the record)

Our goal isn't to undercut anyone, but provide details of our own projects for others to recreate.

I was thinking it was short for Sadistic Fabrication. Somewhat disappoint.

Only because SADomasochist Fabrication sounds a little too kink.

For whom?
I think it's right at home for the intended audience.

Asterisk number two, ARE should be OUR...

Otherwise, excuse me while I go check out the site. Taking measurements is the part I hate most about designing...

So you are or are not selling Delrin bushings?

Sean told me earlier in the week he was too busy.
