Virgin Teflon

Postby Zenvair601 » Thu Sep 02, 2004 10:22 am

Hi. I have a question that may be a little technical, but this seems to be the best area for the post.

I purchased a piece of virgin teflon on Ebay. I planned to use it as my upper bearing on the nose-wheel gear of my 601XL. Since I'm plans-building, I have to find the stuff to use. The plans call for "nylon." The only thing about this teflon is that is is kind of heavy. I assume it would make a good bearing since it should be slippery. Not sure about the strength.

Can anybody tell me if there are other uses for the virgin teflon that I'm not seeing?

Thanks,
