I didn’t need the full milling attatchment, as I was only using the bit, to ‘enlarge’ holes and so on, so I don’t need the precision afforded by the full attachment.
After my soggy wheelsucking in the rain last week... ** cough ** @Littgull!I couldn't find my rubber sheeting, so as a stop-gap, I used a plastic A4 ring-binder
It's fairly stiff plastic. & 'Ribbed For Extra...… Drainage'...………...
Hardest part was drilling the holes in the mudguard, as my battery drill has died, so I was using the big SDS drill, which was awkward, due to the unbalanced weight (& trying to hold mudguard straight
In hindsight, it'd have been easier to take the mudguard off, but
I did think I had a black binder, but it'll do!!

I doubt she'll be riding 'in convoy' with anyone in the rain, but I still have the front (or is it the back?) of the ring-binder, to slice up
1. I'll have to check how much foreign postage is (to the west of the Pennines)Oddly enough, out on the bike today I found this by the roadside.
I'd be happy to chop some off and send it to you if you like? I'm planning on making some myself as I don't think much of the flaps that were included with my longboards.

Yip. I'll pm you my address.
I'm thinking it could actually be from a farm trailer tyre. I don't think it's big enough to do a truck, but who knows.
Let me how big you want it chopping and how many and I'll get the scissors on it.
I'll have to get a rear flap sorted. I'm pretty sure the rear mudguard came with a decent mudflap when I bought the bike from new but 3 separate collisions with lunatic taxi drivers in the last 2 years have left the mudguard minus the flap! Mind you, even my flapless rear mudguard must result in less water spray than the seat post mounted '4rse saver" ?
It was a fettling fail for me this afternoon, trying to change a brake cable on my Good Ladies Walker for the first time, when I got the chewed up cable out the brake lever separated into two parts, it looks like cable tension keeps it together, I also found out there are a pair of pulleys that the cable runs round, I couldn't wind the new cable round those when I tried to fit it and it looks like I need to buy a kit rather than just a cable, I've now contacted the firm I brought the generic cable from about returning the cable and buying a kit.

I had forgotten that I was riding the singlespeed bike! I thought I was on the CX bike, which has proper mudguards. Mind you, even on that bike the flap on the rear guard is nowhere near as long as the one on the front.I'll have to get a rear flap sorted.

This. A 1mm spacer did the trick.
