      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Add tubes for big beach wheels

Recommended Posts

I have 2 sets of old commercial beach catwheels for Hobies with big rubber tires. The problem in air loss from these tubeless tires was that the axle housing was steel, which rusted into flinders. Apparently the tires were glued to the steel many years ago. I attempted to fiberglass the old steel inside the axle housing which was a mess.

 

Since the tires and original nylon of delrin? rod roller bearings are still good, I want to cut the steel out, add a big inner tube then put a PVC tubing liner inside and glue the tire bead to the PVC with-- probably --3M 5200. Also make a hole in the tire for the tube stem.

 

Problem- The ID of the PVC has to match the original steel axle tube ID .

\

What if I still use PVC with the right ID, glue the inner tube in place, then fabricate a thinwall stainless steel tube to fit the tire bead ID?

 

Comments welcome.

Flinders. Quite descriptive word even if the reader doesn't know the exact definition.

"Nej. Borgy, boomp da Borgie vit meatballs". My greatgrandfather lived on the island of Gotland in the Baltic. He was described as a "snickerer" which is a kind of blacksmith who messes around and makes stuff, fixes up other people's stuff, but never makes any money.

Sort of like Governail, and me.
