.020 wheels

Wanted .020 wheels

Post  duke.johnson on Tue Dec 11, 2012 8:47 am

I'm sure this will be an easy one for the group.  I'm looking for the wheels for the Cox .020 Landing Gear on the Cox website.  The wheels I bought were the only ones I found (3/4" black-10pack) on the site and they dont work.  Looks like they need a one piece wheel and axle.

Duke:

Not sure if the Cox .020 LG has "pants" to cover the wheels. If so that may complicate matters.

On my Brodak "Lil' Toot"/ Cox .020 bipe without "pants" I used 3/4" DuBro tail wheels which seems to work well.

Good morning Dave. Tired w/ Coffee Read

Yes, this is the Cox motor mount with landing gear and wheel pants. I have some of the dubro 3/4" tail wheels. These look like the axle is part of the wheel and they snap in. Huh...

...but Bernie is blowing out the firewall/landing gear because he has so many. The mind boggles.

Wanted making wheels that fit..

Post  roddie on Tue Feb 27, 2018 11:53 am

Making a pair of "snap-in" replacement-wheels should be a fairly easy task, if someone could tell us the maximum wheel diameter that will fit (spin) inside the skirt.. along with the required axle-width and the required axle-diameter to snap-in to the retainers.



Here's an example..




Those are 3/4" diameter craft-store wheels which have pre-drilled hubs. Not a difficult item to find. K & S alloy tubing, solid-rod or music-wire is also not difficult to find. Once the proper axle-diameter and width is known, it is then possible to fabricate an axle. I would imagine the size (diameter) to be somewhere between 3/32" (my example) and 1/8".. but that's just a guess.

The wooden wheel's diameter can be easily reduced if needed.. by screwing the wheel onto a Dremel-tool buffing-mandrel and running the wheel against some abrasive paper. The wheel can be centered on the axle by using small flat-washers on both sides. This would prevent the wheel from rubbing on the inside of the pants.

Then whoever was looking for a set better grab them as they are only ones we have. Of course merch from our eBay store or our website can be added to take advantage of combined shipping.
