In perusing Ralph's GyroBee documentation, I am uncertain from what material the axles are made. I had thought they were steel, and may very well be. If so, can aluminum be substituted? Thanks.
The workforce difference in aluminum and 4130 is not as bad as Stainless alloys.Brian Jackson;n1135333 said:Lastly, has there been any problem with galvanic corrosion of dissimilar metals at the axle / strut union?
These are the practical tips I live for! Thank you Jakegyrojake;n1135335 said:The workforce difference in aluminum and 4130 is not as bad as Stainless alloys.
You will have more of an iron oxide problem than corrosion.
I have always painted my axil root with a light coat of clear lacquer then grease the Poo out of it before installation.
I also grease everything outside of the axial socket before assembly to slow down oxidation..
