  • make pinwheel rings & brgs on 70's obsolete !

    I would like to hear your thoughts.


    If you could make your pinwheel still function normally without using the ring and four bearings for about the same money or maybe less, would you be interested ? The time it would take to convert to the new style would be approx. the same as putting in a new ring. If you did the conversion, there would be no need to remove the bad ring.

    I don't want to go into great detail at this time, really only want to get a consensus about the idea itself. The conversion would end up being slightly similar to the 90 pinwheel set-up.

    Thanks.

    Could this be adapted to an 82-30 with a kidney/clutch conversion?

      Yeah what Toon said.

      Ive never seen a 90 so I dont know the setup. I always thought they were nothing more than 70s with updated chassis and motors.

            Or better yet..

            Would you be interested in...an... EDIBLE ring tube weldment? Huh? Huh? Graham cracker perhaps? Think of the possiblities, you could fill your pinwheel wicking tube with jam or marshmallow cream and ...just....eat it!!

            I had a few prototypes mocked up , but I had the munchies, and , well, you know how THAT goes.
            The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

                      Sounds to me like it could be the classic setup of the 5850 solid PW with the center bearing and shaft. To incorporate this (for an open PW) you would need a spoke wheel, which could be dangerous. If not, you need something riding below and above or to the sides…how could this be cost effective?

                      Haven’t seen the 90’s, but I could see one hub riding outside another hub…but without bearings?…again cost effective and reliable????

                      To me, it would have to outlast the current design that is 98% reliable for at least 25 years…What kind of data can you provide to challenge this?

                        I feel it would not be worth the cost.
                        You would need to replace the rear cover with the hoop weldment and associated parts, rollers brackets, supports, etc.....including a new rear guard

                        The ring tube and bearing configuration is very reliable and takes little time to maintain.
                        Please.....follow the instructions!!

                          IMHO-I believe any price for this is too much. Changed several ring tubes on the 30s but I never had to change one on a 70.We may replace an average of 2 or 3 roller bearings a year at a cost of $22 each and have no calls due to pinwheel problems why would you even consider the expense?

                              the 70 and the 90 pinwheel are different, not in size but in the way they are supported, so i agree the cost would be too much.
