Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


This book is a compilation of articles on wheelmaking taken from late 19th century journals published in America for the carriage industry. The articles are divided into ten sections: the first is a long overview of wheelmaking technologies of the time, followed by sections on the dishing of wheels, hubs, spokes, felloes and rims, tires, rubber tires, patent wheels, and wheel repair. Taken together, the articles give the reader a full understanding of the fast-moving changes that took place in the wheelmaking industry during the late 19th century. This is a fascinating book, full of detailed information valuable both to the general reader and to the practicing wheelwright.
