    If you're worried about it, buy a waterproof switch from the start. Lowbrow sells two versions of the same switch, just different bezel nuts, for about $50. It's originally a boat switch.

    I'm with 70f and JBnNC. The whole mini drum wheel, especially with a 21" rim is a desirable part. You can probably sell it as a whole for more than you'll pay for a brand new 21" rim. And doing...

    I have one. Looking for a review? It's helpful with little things like wheel spacers, and making bungs. Other than that, it's too small and not precise enough.
