Re: OT creative language

May be too early to reply. Ed. You have the heart to do this and many more people should. Be prepared for the onslaught of sticky labels and things. It actually diminishes an ordinary way of contributions. Over the phone or by check, it gets around . We have to do that which is correct. We don't nee...

Re: OT creative language

Oh heck, Ed. In the middle of the night or early morning, we post stuff. Wish it never happened sometimes. We are going thru the absence of sunlight and lacking vitamin D. :) I liked swing shifts to a point but they can really mess a person up. Talk about "swing shifts", think about our wounded sold...

Re: OT creative language

Street corners are interesting. You have to maintain the sidewalk and also the access to the fire hydrant for forty years. It is getting more tough and maybe I do end up at the corner.

Re: Finished trike.

Re: Finished trike.

Since you put so much work into this, I was thinking about chain protection. The trike is rather low to the ground and your arrangement may allow a jacket sleeve or something to get caught or from something below. Since I'd followed this thread ; I know that you were reaching considerable speed and ...

Re: Finished trike.

I believe many of us are familiar with tracked vehicles. The pins to engage the sprocket are not fixed. They have to be rollers. Each one needs lube so it can't be in one place every time. Crawlers and such suffer when the rollers seize, then you are talking sprockets and then you are thinking money...

Re: Finished trike.

Better than a tether and very cool. I appreciate showing the chain to us. You know it can't go on this way and you will need some chain guard. All kinds of surface particles will get into your rollers. Brilliant work!
