I'd hate to have to change that rear wheel for any reason. At least it won't go flat. :lol:
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Grandin/Stamp of Character, DVD. From Missouri Department of Conservation. Missouri logging and lumbering video from the early 1900's.

I used the videos in Junior high shop class. Shop students were totally unimpressed with the wages, $1.00 a day. I think the hard thing for 12 year olds to understand was the advancements made in technology in 60 - 70 years. Don't think they didn't believed their grandparent really lived in such conditions.

There is or was another video from MO Dept of Conservation on processing lumber in the early 1900's. This video was really neat because it contained view of the different rail road locomotive moving lumber to the different processes.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Eugene, I totally understand what you are saying. It's like my grandmother, who lived during those times, never believed that the astronauts walked on the moon. She said they were somewhere in the desert southwest and that it was all just a TV stunt.

Reminds me of some stories my grandfather told about his days as a wildcatter in the hills of West Virginia and Kentucky. They would drag drilling equipment through the woods with mules and up really steep hills with steam engines pulling cables on capstans. Totally primitive conditions. No electricity, no plumbing. Everything "old school". Nostalgic to think about but extremely difficult living conditions.

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!

I built a one ton 4x4 dual rear wheel flat bed truck with locking diffs. To get to the wood off the dirt roads. The ones who used the cable skidders still had it rough.
Any kind of logging is very hard work. But the 1700's to early 1900's these were really tough men. There horses had a hard life too. Then came steam, down the road came steam powered yarders. They still used handsaws. I had many workers quit after the first day of cutting and loading. I had one guy quit when he couldn't keep up with me. I'm 300lbs, he's 150lbs.LOL it was the healthiest time of my life. I taught my kids what hard work really is. I told them to either work hard with your body or get a good education and work with your mind. Two of them went to college both have 2 degrees.
The third one is a cabinet maker.
He knows were the wood comes from.
I loved logging, I felt alive working outside. I shut the 100cc saw off one day in the light snow and sat on a stump. I could hear the snow hit the ground. No one had a better workplace than me.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
