Adding Pull Knob To Wheelchair Stem Bearing Dust Cover
[ May 1st 2017 12:51 pm ]
In this video I show how I've added a kitchen pot lid knob to my wheelchair stem bearing dust caps. Without this the stem bearing dust cap plastic becomes carved as it is repeatedly removed for replacing bearings. This forms a channel for water, salt, sand and grit to get into the bearing and cause the bearing to prematurely fail. In extreme cases this will cause the bearing to seize in place.
Adding Underarm Pad To Broken Crutch Underarm Support
[ May 22nd 2016 8:08 pm ]
My full size crutches have fell several times. One instance broke part of the plastic housing for the underarm support. In this video I show how I am using glue to adhere the underarm support to what remains of the plastic housing. This is really important to me. I don't live in a "disposable" mindset. I would rather repair my crutch than start with a new pair. While the glue was curing I spoke for a minute to inspire those who will watch this video to become all they are able and not to let your mind hold you back from having dreams. I want to see you make the best of your circumstances.

My hope is that you will use this as an opportunity to think about your life, what you want for it and finish watching this video with fresh hope.
