Re: Blast media

I use the crushed gas, used to use the black stuff, but as you said dusty, I couldn’t see what I was cleaning very well, and I have a vacuum.

Re: Mice eliminator

We have a good mouser, or should I say Voler, because we have lots of voles. I let her in the basement every so often to clean them out. Just like mice they like to chew holes in things.

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

We are able to do that here in Alaska, but try finding a 1935 Alaska plate!

Another nice thing they do here now is if a vehicle is 8 years old or older, you can get a permanent registration. No...

Re: Tuesday Tech: Which valve to adjust? Mart's easy method.

Good job Mart! I think that’s pretty simple.

Re: Bead roller stand

Yes,
EMS pan would be a good start, but cost of pan and freight to Alaska is about what this motorized conversion cost.
Plus, yes, I get to do it myself!

Re: Wide 5 Artillery Wheels

There is a thread on the H.A.M.B. about using wide five centers with a Honda wheel to get a wider rim.
If you want stock, they are everywhere, I’ll bet I have 20 of them lying around.

Re: Bead roller stand

Re: Bead roller stand

Yea, the handle makes it pretty much a two man operation. Good idea on the steering wheel!
I think I’ll use this a lot more with power!

Re: Bead roller stand

Yes Iíve seen several of those videos. I already made the modification for the return spring for the upper roller. This is almost a necessity.

I remember my dad telling me of his chemistry classes in high school, now a days you’d be thrown in jail for some of the experiments they did back then.

Re: Removing leaves of rear spring to lower 33/34 coupe

I removed a couple top springs, and made a spacer to compensate for the U bolts. But some dips in the road did allow rear radius arms to contact frame.

Re: Bead roller stand

Thanks for all the comments,
Yea, I wasn’t sure about the wheels, these are four inch casters, with brakes on two of them. Leftovers I had in the shop. If it is unstable, then I will make changes.
