Title: manufacturing tracks.
Post by: Buster on July 06, 2009, 04:30:52 PM
Hi all i have just purchased a cletrac and iam currently in the process of re-rubbering sherman tank tracks via a company which manufactures rubber track for the MOD in the uk, and as i have just purchased a cletrac i would like to get a batch of tracks made up as i already have the contacts that said this is ok to do but what i need in order to get an accurate price is a used/broken section of track which is roughly one foot long so as it can be reverse engineered I.E wire sizes and steel worked contained in side the rubber. obviously i have the overall dimensions as my cletrac is currently on tracks itself. from any interested interessted parties in purchasing cletrac tracks then please get in contact so as i have an idea of numbers etc obviously this all depends on the overall pricing.

Hi there

Any chance of posting a few pictures of you cletrac and where did you find it??? I have one rough example and two spare chassis. As is everyone I am also in need of new tracks and pads. I can supply you with a one foot section, no problems. It won't be until after war and peace though. I have several broken tracks.

I can think of several other people who need sets as well.

Hi paul that is excellent is there any chance you could bring a section to the hop farm with yourself as we will be down there for 12 days as it would mean i could get the ball rolling sooner! it dosnt matter how the section is cut be it with a cut off saw etc I will try and post pictures tomorrow evening. cheers.

Yeah no worries if I can get up the airfield and cut a section off I will bring it with me. Not sure whether I will be camping onsite for the week or just visiting for a day as we have a twenty month old boy who is hyper!!

The track I will cut up is in poor to OK condition but will certainly be good enough to get started. I also have a good condition broken track but do not really want to shorten it just in case one day i may need it!!

I maybe able to help on an oil filter housing, but it will take time to see whether the guy will part with it.

Email me and i'll send you my mobile number so we can meet up.
