Shifter karts (as with most race karts) typically use 1" hollow axles, with 3 or 4 support bearings to help minimize axle flex. Bigger diameter and hollow is stronger than smaller and solid.

Vulcan ProTig 205

Hey all!

'Bout 2 weeks ago, I pre-ordered a Vulcan ProTig 205 at my local HF store with the coupon from the June circular. Got the call this morning that it was in at the store (my local store...

They work more or less exactly how the name implies. The outer rim of the extended inner race is eccentric (off center) relative to the shaft. The lock collar corresponds to that. You slide the...

It does work, but you have to be real careful. If the engine fires, it can overrun your the drill and bust the chuck off, or smash your wrist in a real hurry.

Obviously without the spark plug in,...

I was up on a ladder putting in a light fixture in my barn yesterday... 124 up in the trusses. No breeze inside, and the underside of that tin roof felt like a space heater. I was up there for 10...

Eh... It's not THAT big (35x45) and the floor is way too rough. Besides, I really don't want skid marks all over my shop floor.

Eventually I'll have the slab resurfaced and leveled. I'd like to...

This building will eventually be a dedicated fabrication and metalworking shop. Still a ways to go, but at least I know it's not going to pancake under a snow load this winter.

Coming up on 2 years since we moved, and I've finally gotten around to working on one of my barns. The lockdown was a god send... Would have taken me a year or more of weekends to get to this point....

1" shaft with a 3/16" key is very odd. 1/4" is the standard.

Just to throw it out there, a Dremel, a couple files, and some patience would make that engine a whole lot easier to find a clutch...

Pricing will be pretty level across the board. GPS or BMI probably the easiest. "Overpriced" is relative. If you're comparing against a Chinese 40 series, they're all going to be "overpriced".
