Re: Bug Out Cart Resource Thread

This trailer is being designed to be as versatile and adaptable as much as possible, within the constraints of how its being made. The swing arm can be adjusted on its rotational axis to any position, allowing it to fold, change from a pull trailer to a push trailer, whereby you fold it over on itse...

Re: Bug Out Cart Resource Thread

I should add that feeding material into a 20,000 RPM TCT cutter by hand is not to be taken lightly, the specific cutter used is a Flush Trim Cutter Bottom Bearing. I make a beach wood template of the part, then using strong double sided sticky tape stick this template to the top side of the Aluminiu...

Re: Bug Out Cart Resource Thread

If its of interest to anyone, the Aluminium plate parts which consist of either 10mm and 20mm thick T6 grade Alloy, have all been machined via manual hand movement of the alloy into a TCT wood cutter bit, on a flipped upside down DeWalt wood working router ( DW625E ) therefore no real fancy machine ...

Re: Bug Out Cart Resource Thread

As for the type of brake lever at the handle bar, which will be the cable type, could be a conventional V brake lever or use a gear lever, perhaps like those on the downtube from racing road bikes, as they could be thumb operated, which would then give full finger wrap around grip on the bars should...

Re: Bug Out Cart Resource Thread

Its a 2003 Hope Mini hydraulic disc brake, the idea is to run the hydraulic hose to a cut down/modified Hope brake lever, which will be mounted at the mid/folding hinge point of the hiking trailer, from this point it will switch to a cable that actuates the modified lever, and runs to the handle bar...

Re: Bug Out Cart Resource Thread

I've opted for the custom route, its an ongoing project, as trying to be versatile and accommodate as many eventuality's as possible can't be rushed. This is the swing arm section that will utilize a Fox air shock unit at some point. The whole thing should be foldable, float on water, use as many cy...

For caving and biking, the Hope vision2 LED range are
my preferred light, good output and run time, and
very well made.

Re: Flashlights...What do ZS members like best?

I hate it when a perfectly good item becomes outdated. Upgradeable, modularity are what do it for me in any flashlight, and right up there is the original good ol Maglite. I use mine daily during the winter nights and love em. Surefire are also great little pocket power lights with upgraded LEDs, an...

Re: DEI 1609 compatible hip belts?

I can't see your image so my thoughts are based on my enclosed pics. The vertical slots on either side of the frame at the lowest point on the DEI 1609, are looking very similar in terms of spacing and position to those on my DEI 1606, therefore I would be inclined to try a Molle 2 hip belt. They ha...

Evening all from Scotland

Have come across many a zombie type amongst society whilst on
my travels, thought it appropriate to mingle with those that have the experience
and knowledge in dealing with them, and to better my understanding : )
All the best
