    Multipurpose Aluminum Tubing, 3/16" OD, .09" ID, .049" Wall Thickness, 3' Length ordered from McMaster Carr. I then drill it out with a 3/32" bit and tap the holes. Use liberal amounts of cutting oil since it is really "gummy" aluminum.

    Multipurpose Aluminum Tubing

    Temperature Range: -452° to 400° F
    Bend with a bending tool
    Use with flared fittings

    Here’s the most versatile aluminum tubing we offer—it is corrosion resistant, handles high pressure, and offers good weldability. Also known as Alloy 6061, this lightweight aluminum material has magnesium and silicon added for strength. Tubing has seamless construction, which provides a smooth interior and allows it to be flared without splitting. Use with water, air, hydraulic fluid, gasoline, diesel, and fuel oil. Tubing has a hard (T6) temper. OD tolerance is ±0.008" for tubing ODs 1" and smaller; ±0.012" for 1 1/8" to 2 1/2"; and ±0.048" for 3" and larger. Tubing can be sterilized with steam (autoclaving).

    Standard tubing meets ASTM B210 and SAE AMS-WW-T-700/6.


    OD 3/16"
    Wall 0.049"
    ID 0.09"

    3ft : 89965K16 $11.82
    6ft : 89965K37 $19.07

    Wasn't anything on and I didn't feel like reading. So, this is what I did instead. Lexan picture glue and leftover paint. Now I have another set of skins to use. I will probably practice with the black ones and comp with the pretty ones. Only takes a few minutes to swap them around.

    Got some more practice in today with Jslick. So far I haven't found mucho don't like with the set up. Since the pining are set right and the grease s cleared out it runs much better.

    Nothing major, but I finally got a chance to repaint the wheel weights. I used the leftover from my Class 2 comp rig.

    Got my new plastic wheels dyed. Just need to get the Voodoo tires mounted up. I really like the way they rurned out, just curious to see how they hold up.

    Found the clicking noise. I had a 50/50 chance on which end. Turns out I chose wrong. Oh well, the gears were showing sign of wear so they needed changing anyway.

    Did you notice the bearing in many pieces. Luckily I had a spare, but I will need to order some more.
