Am in Turing classroom as I write this.

Any fab persons reading this have GOOD suggestions for separating the
rubber out of steel-belted radial tires for the use of various
Have already *somewhat* figured out how to cut auto tires crosswise
into manageable strips. Each strip still has the three layers of a)
the vulcanized rubber "surface" tread, b) the tightly integrated
steel-belt webbing, and c) the beaded rubber lining on the internal
part of the tire.
Would primarily want the more manageable surface-rubber (a) for fab projects.
NO, a sharp knife does NOT work for this separation!

Will stand by my keybd waiting for good suggestions<G>

When you must stand up for something important in the face of those
who would readily cut you down, then you must continually remind
yourself of the words of the great Mahatma Gandhi,

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you,
then you win."
