First, clean the inside of the tire with WD-40 and a rag. 

Nothing to do with wind turbines, but knowing how to fix a tubeless tire when you’re out in the boonies will help BIG TIME! Especially when your snowblower or wheelbarrow tire goes flat. All you need is a ratchet binder and an air pump. Takes about 10 minutes and you’re done.

Next, wrap a ratchet binder around the outside of the tire and give it a few good cranks.

Hook up an air compressor (or bike pump) to the stem. Start pumping air in. Note: It's handy if the pump has an air gauge.

I like to put in 20 psi and see if it holds. Then, take the rachet strap off and listen for leaks (or use  the pump gauge)

Once there is no leaks, re-install the tire back on your equipment.

Part 2 – Fan Upgrade for 12V Electric Coleman Cooler

25 Jun , 2015   Video

12v-coleman-cooler-upgrade-part2-thumb

This is part 2 of the Removing the Cooler Gizmo from an Electric Coleman Cooler series. The hot and cold fans are upgraded to a more efficient model and some changes were made to the wiring.
The original plan was to put it into the old 1920’s ice box, but, after a second look (and persuading from my spouse), I decided against the idea. With the summer starting to set in, I decided it would be more beneficial for cold drinks.
This video took some time, had to scavenge through the bone pile of computer parts for fans.
