#ThrowbackThursday
Early wheels were toys in North America! In the 1940s, archaeologists unearthed wheeled toys—ceramic dogs and other animals with wheels as legs—in pre-Colombian layers of sediment in Vera Cruz, Mexico. The indigenous peoples of North America did not use wheels for transportation until the arrival of European settlers.

Casters used in the food industry (meat packing plants, dairy plants, etc.) are exposed to continuous steam cleaning, heat and moisture. It is important that stainless steel caster wheels are in place. These wheels withstand the demands of this industry and provide anti-rust protection.

According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the first patent involving a wheel was issued to James Macomb of Princeton, NJ, on August 26, 1791, just one year after the U.S. Patent Law was passed. Macomb’s invention was a design for a horizontal, hollow water wheel to create hydropower for mills.

Always check brakes and locks for proper operation. Apply brakes one at a time and attempt to move the equipment to make sure that each brake is not slipping or loose. If brakes slip due to worn or damaged wheels, replace the wheels immediately, and retest the brakes. If the brake mechanism itself is not operating properly, repair or replace it. Always retest brakes immediately after repair or replacement, before returning the equipment to use.

Villard de Honnecourt, born in the late 12th century, designed a perpetual motion wheel. It was an overbalanced wheel with hinged hammers or mallets equally spaced around its rim.

Caster flutter can be a problem that disrupts the flow of business. The speed at which the caster flutters depends on the weight being put on the caster and the trailing distance. One way to eliminate flutter at moderate speeds is by increasing the trailing distance, the distance between the steering joint and the wheel axle. This can be sufficient for some industrial facilities and warehouses. For higher speed caster flutter, adding washers to the swivel joint is often the best way to increase friction and eliminate flutter.

#ThrowbackThursday The wheelbarrow is believed to have first appeared in classical Greece, sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries B.C., was then found in China four centuries later and made its way to medieval Europe. Wheelbarrows were costly to buy but they paid for themselves in terms of labor costs within days.

Lubricate Grease Fittings. Develop a consistent lubrication schedule. Under standard working conditions, grease fittings need to be lubricated every six months. However, if used in a corrosive or wet application it may be necessary to lubricate the fitting more often.

An easy way to measure the depth of a mount hole is with a pencil. Remove an old caster, insert the pencil into the hole in the chair, mark the depth with your thumb; remove and measure.
