How to replace lost flying saucer hubs!

Post by Mrs. Beach on Sat Feb 18, 2012 10:40 pm

It's happened to us all. We have (or the mice have) somehow lost the little cylindrical white thing that sits on the axle and the flying saucer sits on it.

I just lost one and replaced with with 1/2-inch vinyl tubing (such as I use for my Euthanization Station). I cut a cylinder of the 1/2-inch vinyl tubing as tall as the missing saucer hub, and slit it down the side. I rolled it up and inserted it inside the space on the bottom of the saucer where the hub usually goes. Then I cut a small piece of paper and rolled it up and inserted it inside the hole in the middle of the rolled-up vinyl tubing as a shim so the metal axle could turn. It's a little lose, but it works just fine! I expect aluminum foil would work better for a shim. It'd last longer.
