I made my own from office Binder clips( 3/4" X 3/8" size). An elder Bassmaster at AI(MD) showed me this trick. If I knew his name I would certainly give him the credit.



Recommended hole size for a 4-40 thread rolling screw for 70% thread engagement into steel is .1006" (#39 or # 38 drill).

Pilot hole sizes for thread forming srews tend to be a little larger than pilot holes for self-tapping screws.

If you indeed have a self-tapping screw, then I would recommend starting with a pilot hole near .096" (i.e # 41 drill).

You can also, use a 6/32 screw uses a #36 bit for regular threads, and a # 35 or 34 for self tapping screws . Use only blunt tip screws for construction.

Try it , fantastic little Idea, that is CHEAP to make and implement!


Hooks up!

What was really neat about the Buddies was this, the gentleman was at the AI ORV entrance after me and was gone before I finished my third tire.... Also, he took the time to show me these things and was gone... Probably, 2 minutes total to deflate his tires , I was amazed!!!!

He was in a Burgundy pickup w/camper and wife, if he uses the board here he deserves all of the credit!!!

Hooks up,
Forrest

AI4WD, Thanks. That's a great idea. Being the cheap bastage that i am, I've put off buying something like the tire buddies. Now I don't have to. Mike
