I'm seeking donations to help fund my creativity and sharing and help to others.
I'd like to afford a 3d printer to help make pine wood derby parts and various other projects.

Thanks

Re: Tired of scratched wheel bores from pipe cleaner wires ?

I cut them down. They go in my cordless drill. I get like 3 or sometimes 4 out of one pipe cleaner. I only use it 1 time tho. So during my prepping. I use 3 to 4 pieces. Once I spin it in the drill. It don't take long for the pipe cleaners to compress and give less friction in the wheel bore. I go b...

Re: Tired of scratched wheel bores from pipe cleaner wires ?

I'm surprised you are running into this problem.
.I always but. Extrax fluffy. Extra absorbant pipe cleaners. I never have a issue.
But maybe I'm just good at getting center thru the hole. Going in and out.

However a dap of hot glue on the end sounds appealing.

Re: What causes wheel migration to the axle head?

A real world. A car properly aligned. The rears do not move. In or out. But that's so hard and darn near impossible. So we have them migrate out some. And I mean some. Just because they migrate out. Does not mean they are good or aligned. Axle head friction / wheel hub. That's why track. Timer testi...
