Hm thanks. It sounds like this might be a possibility. SRM supplied the spindle (it comes pre-installed in the spider) but the BB compatibility is the bit I don't know. I'll have to call them.

I think I did it right.

Dolan DF4. Rotor BB cups. 24mm spindle (steel, it's heavy). The spindle requires a spacer so the left arm fits, otherwise the opening in the arm is way too big.

I got the 24mm thinking the 30mm wouldn't work with my frame (BSA). It's a bit after the fact but would the 30mm have worked better? Arg.
