14 posts in this topic

I am looking for 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" shrink tubing, I have called and looked at most of the hardware, auto parts and misc places in the twin ports with no luck. only need a short piece but ran out of ideas. any suggestion where I might look anywhere would help.

thanks

opsirc - do you have an electrical supply store near you? they will probably have it but you might have to buy more than a short piece.

Check with an electrical contractor or furnace installer.

You can order it from McMaster-Carr (mcmaster dot com) in Chicago. They have a pack with five 6" lengths for about $7.

Check your local welding supply store. It is used to repair the outer sheath for a mig welding torch.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
