DIY Agility Breakaway Tire

I decided to turn my normal tire into a breakaway tire. Tonight I was able to make the internal armature which will hold each half of the tire in a semi-circle shape. I used 1" EMT conduit and made a jig to bend the curve.







This armature is made to be a 28" diameter on center. That would make it sit in the center of a 4" drainage pipe shaped to a 24" inner diameter. That's all for tonight. I still have some training to do.
