  • Hockey pucks?

    OK, who sent me the hockey pucks that arrived today? Sorry but I have lost my emails/pms and cant thank you directly.

    Thanks very much, they will be ideal as the feet under my concrete machine bench!

    Sounds like it may have been a disgusted hockey fan who has taken up lawn bowling?

      I understand they are a very good kind of rubber for turning on a lathe, if you need something like that.

        They make good body mounts in old pickups too. (the truck ones!!)

          The donor has PMed me and I have thanked him, it sure was good of him to send me these.

          I have not seen them before and I am sure people find a lot of use for them.

            Probably a Buffalo Sabres fan.

            Maybe if someone knows they tell the Sabres what they're used for?

            Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

            It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

              They saw up nicely. I've made many things from them, one being a roller for a tape machine, others are feet. I have yet to do a test to see how well they contain their color when skidded across laminate flooring- I don't care about the feet, but I don't want to leave skid marks. They are very black once you cut into them. I also want to do a test to see how durable they would be as wheels under a cart. I'd bore out a center hole and press in a steel sleeve as a bearing, or maybe a uhmw sleeve. Maybe a uhmw flange pressed in from either side, or maybe a pair of ball bearings side by side- just thinking out loud here.

              I don't recall, but it may have been a hockey puck that I cut up and tested for conductivity at one time. I'll have to test that again-
              I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                They work well as machine mounts.

                  there was a recent thread about how Lee Valley was moving away from just very high quality tools...

                  http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/pag...=1,43456,43465

                  they found a use for hockey pucks.

                  I'm not quite convinced current pucks are the same as the ones growing up...granted frozen many a time (and I mean frozen, not just put in a fridge before the game to reduce bounce) they seemed very difficult to cut and IIRC, chunks would break out if two or more cuts started...sort of "fissure" at a meeting point and that piece would break out.

                    Hockey pucks are very handy items for all sorts of applications. They can be used to make very nice flexible shaft couplings to handle small misalignments. They are handy in a press for die forming small aluminum parts. They machine well, especially if frozen and they are cheap.

                      My Starrett 24x36 surface plate came on the factory stand supported on three hockey pucks,works great.
                      I just need one more tool,just one!

                        Where does one find hockey pucks. They're not too common in SE Georgia.

                          You can't find them in Texas either. Damn Yankees

                            Follow the link that RussZHC posted above, only $1 each, cheaper for 10 or more.

                              A cursory web search suggests that the deal at Lee Valley is pretty good, since pucks are hard to find under a dollar.
