    Spray foam?

    so they never go flat.
    The grips in the movies do that.
    Is that right?
    How you do that?
    can you do it with the spray foam in a can or you need special equipment?

            Here are a few of my latest:

            A spacer for stacking pie-plates in the fridge, folds for storage.

            A rough prototype Christmas tree holder. I'll clean this up and make it dissasemble after we are done with it.

            A Shelf for fitting a plant on a narrow window ledge:

            More (and larger) images, with explanations can be found on my Smugmug page here.

            Thanks for looking.

              for the tire foam stuff we got a two part stuff from john deere dealer took valve cores out tire. mixed up stuff poured through valve stem and let it do its thing after 20 minutes or so snipped the stuff that had squirted back out and had a solid tire. it was the caster wheels on the front of a large mower after the tires fell apart we were still able to run the foam rubber wheel for a few days.

                    30 to 40 pair shoe rack

                    My father-inlaw asked me to make him an aluminum shoe rack for xmass.
                    It is framed with 3/4" x 1/8" square tubing and the runners are 3/4x1/16" angle. I had a hard time trying to present it in photo's but here it is.
                    Oh, btw, the cat is my biggest fan.

                      • Blowproof Bellhousing

                        I build the engines for an Alfa Romeo spider that we've been running at Bonneville for the last 10 years. We started with an Alfa transmission, but quickly found out that it couldn't handle the horsepower of the turbocharged engine . . . so the replacement (Muncie M22) required a custom bellhousing. I also decided to move the starter behind the ring gear to make room for a larger intercooler.

                        Here's the finished product . . . made from 1/4 inch mild steel.
