Default Re: Gas Tank Edge Guard

HEY Interesting. I stuck some of that stuff on awhile back in response to someone determined to whack the seam off and weld it. It saved the tank a nasty whack from a falling something in the shop very soon after I did it. I wasn't aware it was a heat sealer however. It has been sticking just fine from friction up to now. I will do the heat gun thing tomorrow. Thank you sir. I have another HT tank due Tuesday for the 20" Schwinn/B&S model N. It will get it too. Regarding the Schwinn, it has a Stingray spring fork with a 48-spoke 20" Mongoose BMX wheel but could accommodate a 26" wheel. In order to mount a caliper brake, I milled some magnesium to straddle the fork struts with. Next is a crescent cut out to clear the fender (when I find it) Now job one is vacuum all the mag cuttings before a grinding spark sets it off. I really love my hand-held HFT power bandsaw. It cuts huge chunks of mag like butter.
