    I've been poking and matching for two weeks already. Started fusing racks tonight. A few years ago I had a complete rain out on the fourth. Stored till Labor Day with no problems.

    That is absolutely the best wheel I have ever seen. I will admit I have some wheel envy going on! Thanks for the video link. I assume they are no longer in production.

    You couldn't be more correct Dave. Most of the hubs are in need of work. I open them up, true and re-glue the hub then use a long screw with a smooth shank and and a few washers to make sure they...

    15 degrees for most consumer cans will provide max spread with little to no overlap in my experience. If I build another one I'd probably back off to 12 degrees. Here is a pic of three TIKI BOMBS...
