I see a trend here. Great idea! A little extra weight on that rake from the wheels didn't hurt either.

Not too likely I will be dragging the driveway or chipping brush when the ground is frozen.

Finished up the chipper/shredder wheel project today. Had to buy 4 shaft collars for $5. Everything else was from the resource piles. Now have two new rubber tires for something else.

Used rust reformer as a primer and old yeller for the final coat. Baked the paint on top of the wood stove for an hour.

Thanks. Pretty is not a real big thing to me. Functional is usually all I am after.

Me too, until 6 months down the road, then wish I had taken that little bit more time to make it look nice.

I'm that way with almost any "finishing" be it paint/varnish, or even wiping off the layout ink. Later I sort of wish I'd have done a bit at least. :-)

Last couple times I used it the wheels were mighty sticky even though I greased the axles every couple years. So an upgrade seemed appropriate. Drilled a 5/8" hole in the outer surface of the wheel so a grease gun hose would fit in the hole. Then drilled a hole in the hub and tapped for 1/4-20 zerk. Took an hour to do everything. Greased it up and it spins with one finger now.

I have this on my grease gun:

Set at 90 degrees, I'll bet it would fit in there without the hole in the rim.

I find the attachment very handy, and it doesn't seem to get in the way.
