Hi Rob...I dont know who sells the water treadmill.
I am working on making one...I think with a little bit of planning one can be made fairly readily using materials available commercially for other applications.
I will see what I can do during the winter months.
I am also going to try and source out the mandrels he ties on as they are not available here yet. That along with the tube material. Unfortunately the tubing is only avail here in N America in sections 1 meter long. I am quite positive that it could be bought by the roll.
I have a few connections in the machining industry that may be able to make the mandrels out of a long handled allen wrench, turned down on a lathe, and stepped down to match the tube diameters, then rehardened to a case hardened level.
Also have connections in the plastic industry that know what a nutball fly tyer I am..so I may have some luck finding the tubing in rolls as well.
Let me know if you find something that may work for either the treadmill or any of the other materials we need for the temple dogs
