How to Use this Product
Tungsten Cylinders can be easily used for pinewood derby car weighting by drilling one or more 25/64 inch or larger diameter holes into the block and then inserting the desired number of cylinders and gluing it in place with a hot glue gun or epoxy. The hole can then be plugged or left open for adjustment at the weigh-in. Since Tungsten Cylinders are very hard, do not plan to drill out any extra weight. Instead, use an alternate method to make fine adjustments such as adding/removing tungsten putty.
