Over 30 years ago we put the wheels under a lift. Spent a couple years working at a gas station.... Used to pour Coke on beads that wouldn't break....We had a guy come in with a split rim that was really low on air. It blew when he filled it. Ended up in the hospital, but was alright....Thankfully.......
I cut a little over an acre of grass ~55,000 sq ft. I was in a losing battle with the dandelions, clover, creeping charlie and plantain for a long time, but now that I'm retired, I dumped several hundred dollars worth of weed control and fertilizer on it this year. It's looking MUCH better and the frequent rain has helped prevent it from drying out and going dormant, for now. August is usually the worst month for that. The down side is, I'm cutting every three days or I get hay field windrows...


I've worked with split rims for years. I've had lock rings that were so bent out of shape from people prying them off the wrong way, that they won't come close to locking. A little patience and common sense went a long way to preventing explosions. I would clamp the rings with vise grips and then inflate to 10#, gently tap the ring to be certain it was locked and add another 10#'s. At that point, the ring is either locked or not and if not, out came the air and I would get more vise grips... SO FAR, I've never had a failure...

matts37chev I haven't done much in the garage lately, but I have done a few other things disc golf related.
Plus we are getting to our busy season as summer gets here, so I am already starting to work longer hours.

Don't tell me it was a Dodge with left hand threads and you were turning them the wrong way.
Sure was hard figuring out how to get that wheel off when we were young and tipsy....I never should of hit that curb.

cozwurth Picked up my block and rotating assembly from the machine shop. They had to cut .0013 off of one side, and .0016 off of the other to get me where I wanted to be as far as deck height is concerned. He said that my block was actually in good shape dimensionally, the cuts were pretty even front to back on both sides. Now to get it back on the stand, clean it good, and start assembling.

MARTINSR I got out to the garage to do some cleaning to get back on the truck. Not a whole lot, but I'm getting the bug.

I limbed it out and piled the brush on the trailer and hauled it to the compost site.





Came back, cut up the trunk and moved the pieces to the shop driveway as FREE wood, come and take it away...
