While I was installing the new 400 Motors in the Panther 435, I noticed the right, rear idler repair I did in 2010 was not holding and the crack had returned.

This was my first tank, bought in 2010 and the assembly people at HL had used 3/8" impact guns to tighten the fasteners Shocked  so when I did the rebuild/refinish last year, I did a lot of repairs.  Most held but the plastic collar glued around the idler mount did not.

The idler mount had an O.D. of .435", and was tough to get a piece of metal tube of the right diameter to fit.

Then I got looking at a fired .30-06 cartridge, it looked close, so I cut one and found it to be .405" I.D. 

I got the idea to cut some notches in the cut end, to make a (very) crude milling tool.  I chucked this up in the 3/8" variable speed drill and milled down the O.D. of the mount, it took it to the same size as the I.D. of the cartridge case.

I took another case and made a 1/8" wide ring from it which fit the milled end of the idler mount.  Then I glued it in place and painted it to match.

Posting this as a tip was an after thought, so I did not take pictures of the whole process Embarassed

So far Glen, we've seen you fix your tanks with aluminum arrow shafts and bullet casings.

I'd love to see what you could with a ammo shell from a tank! geek
