wildo More progress. Got the magnets in both ends now...

Here's a little explanation of what I have going.

wildo Both armatures are now complete:

And the magnets arrived! They are 1" square and 1/2" deep. They have a magnet to magnet pull of 49.48 pounds.

I embedded the magnets in the end plates on the armature:

wildo More progress. I glued wood circles onto the armature in order to keep the drainage pipe in place. The masking tape is just holding the wood in place while the adhesive dried.

Then I put the pipe over the armature. Looking good so far!

The magnets are in the mail, and I purchased the colored duct tape tonight (though I think I'm going to try to locate heat shrink tubing).

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.
