Living Life In A Wheelchair

Continuing Work On My Power Wheelchair Foot Rest Modification
[ Thursday May 11th 2017 at 2:20 am ]

I've completed the next step in modifying the foot rest on my power wheelchair to go up and down at the touch of a button. I've used a high strength epoxy to join the foot rest tubing to the hinge the foot rest will pivit on. I am using both epoxy and bolts to join this because of the amount of vibration my wheelchair endures as I travel to the gym each week night. Some bolts on my new wheelchair are already starting to come loose. I've drove it all of 60 miles or 100 kilometers. I am erring on the side of caution. The epoxy now needs the next 36 hours to cure. I will continue this work on the weekend.
