i made one from old printer parts. i think it was the legs. you might also want to try styrene or foam from computer boxes. unless you have to have it 100 percent...im a custom propper.

I seem to remember reading somewhere it was taken off a dryer, but I could be wrong.

I have yet to find something off the shelf that really looks good. I keep liooking and so far have found nothing worth while. I'm still building my pack from scratch but had to buy the bumper from Volguus because his looks so perfect. Besides, I really didn't want to build it myself.

I have tried to attempt the hot wheels track design and i have to say that it doesn't look good. It is flimsy and it doesn't look like the real thing. I would suggest to take a router and carve out the rivits in the different pieces of wood. It isn' very hard and so far the attempts look excellent!!!

Definitely buy one from Volguus. His cyclotron bands are the most accurate I have seen so far. I need to buy me a second one from him as a matter of fact. trust me - if you buy one from him, you won't be disappointed. smile " You don't know what it's like out there.

A real effective thing to use is the track that screen doors use and put it to half of a straight arm and the center.
