If I put these on a Karate Monkey frame will people say I spanked my monkey...?

No, not something that needs machining, just a feature that I didn't think to add when I modeled the seal driver. The seal drivers that you order from other companies have the same basic shape as mine, but the center part has a cylindrical feature that is 32mm dia. x about 50mm long that slides down into the lower fork leg as you drive the seal in. It just makes it so that the seal can't possibly by driven crooked. My design works without that, but you have to be more careful using it. I should have taken a look at someone else's design before I made mine ;)

I did this with hatchbox PETG. For stuff like this I usually do 0.3mm layers. Thicker layers = uglier, but stronger and faster prints in my experience. I didn't print this solid, but I should have. It worked, but it cracked from the beating. I only had 4 shell layers and 15% infill. If I were to do it again I'd model in a centering spindle and print pretty close to solid. Keeping it going absolutely straight is a little involved without it the spindle.
