It's a personal reminder. I have a vintage Sunshine hub in need of a cone. I would like to build that wheelset in the somewhat near future. I have a shoebox full of partial hubs to choose from.
one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.
