Re: Krytox 100 Withdrawn by Manufacturer

Randy, Just thought id ask this question Due to the Victorinox oil being a lube for the care of Swiss Army Knifes. However I have no idea if it's a Mineral oil base type lube. https://www.swissknifeshop.com/swiss-army-knife-oil?gclid=CjwKCAiAwojkBRBbEiwAeRcJZP1iHT4j5afOYnPrYr7MeyM3lcsnz7XO1Q6Zd-EYpp...

Re: Is XPS foam lighter then balsa?

Hay that's grate Ironband. got any pic's of them? You're right it can be painted with water base acrylic or latex paints. I don't know how well the white Krylon craft foam primer spary paint will work on it. Do you know if a clear gloss water base polyurethane spay paint can be spayed on it as well?...

Re: Maximum weight on PWD wheels

Yes Speedster! But the class b rules read only 8 wheels need o be on the truck! And the over all width rule 3 3/8' for the class b is the same as class a and will let you let run with duel wheels all the way around. Two duels on front and on back. Four axles 8 wheels set up. Never seen that done so ...
