The axle can be made from a short piece of electrical conduit.
Announcing another member’s-only event: Friday, 25 May 2014. I will be sponsoring a Cook-out and movie night at Quelab. I’m bringing Space-themed movies, and food to cook on the grill. If you also bring food for the grill or a side dish to share, then we can make it a party!
