Hey all......please don't worry about hijacking the thread.  Like others.....I am enjoying the stories, pictures and videos.  These horses are beautiful.  As far as horse drawn vehicles......please remember....you're all still invited to come see our historic collection......they too are beautiful.  Just closed a deal this morning for four more vehicles coming from Minnesota.....should be here later this month....some will require some work.  So far...it's been a busy summer with visitors and tours.  We've had a few Casita's stop by but not enough......you folks need to get busy! LOL!  Stay safe out there........enjoy your travels!

I wish I could send you my Studebaker one horse delivery wagon... I never found a correct rear axle nut.

 

Me too!   Did you contact the folks I recommended?  You should be able to get that nut????

We're thinking about visiting our daughter in Spokane in September. Maybe I could pack it away in our luggage. That should stump TSA.

I've had two nuts shipped to me and neither worked. One had a flange and was cupped on the back side that tightened against the wheel hub, therefore tightening itself as the wheel turned forward. The second one was wrong size. Return shipping costs are making it more expensive than it's worth. I have a hex nut that keeps the wheel on, but wished for something nearer the original.

And now, Wally, you get what makes us horse folk all crazy about their horses.  That horse was tired at the end, but he kept going. Heck, the RIDER was pooped, too. But did you see his ears? He was gung ho the entire ride. They will try their hearts out for you if they love you, and it is so easy to get that from a horse. When one handles a horse with kindness, patience, gentle handling and affection, (lots of carrots and apples don't hurt, either.), it  is all returned by a loyalty dogs only WISH they could reach.

I've fallen off my horse and instead of him bolting back to the barn where he gets fed and doesn't have to work, he stands there with a look that says, What in the world are you doing down there.  get back on and let's keep going..

I agree.......when I was much younger.....I had the same experience with a bar stool! LOL!

Harold, the thought just hit me............is there a data plate somewhere on the Studebaker? if there's a patent number on the wagon,  you may be able to find a drawing of the original and maybe? maybe? it has a drawing of the axle nut.  I bet there's a patent on it somewhere. If you go to

USPTO.gov (it's a bit klutzy-kind of like patent attorneys and don't ask me how I know about THAT....) with a patent number you might get a copy of the original patent submission. Someone a few years ago scanned in a lot of older patents, but they were bought out by someone else and their efforts stopped.

 Google Search-go to More and there should be a patent search-oh wait, I see that it no longer exists.

Not that it will help  you find a nut, but with that data, you might find a machine shop that will build a new one for you. Just have them do it with iron stock...I bet stainless steel willl NOT be aesthetically appealing.

Or..........I wonder if the builders of wagons just used the same hardware on everything...from wagons like yours to manure spreaders. Now you have me looking at old farm equipment. There are no Amish in my neighborhood, but you gotta wonder if those folks might not have something in a barn somewhere in PA or OH.

I sent Harold a private message with the names of several vendors......I am sure one of them will be able to help.  I have never not been able to find the part I need or have it made.    The nuts were not patented.....only the skeins and boxings.

Plainsman she was not including the likes of that awful pony experience you had. If you dislike a child give the kid a pony. The smaller the package the nastier that are.

 

Also you have to taken into account her affliction/addiction/syndrome/malady which is usually much more severe in females. They have some reality distortion. I can see it now that I have not "fallen off the wagon" and back into the "horse crazy" venue for several years. It is much better to "humor" these folks than disagree. It is not unlike trying to reason with an advanced case  of Alzheimer's Dz. 


Happy Trails!

Just went into town which happens to be Hwy 101.......motorhomes and trailers every other vehicle......lots of people out there travelling.  The fun thing.......saw two Casita's!  Best looking trailer out there but....as you all know....I am biased!  We just got back from two days at Fort Worden in Port Townsend Wa........there was one other Casita there with us.  Hope you all are having a good summer.......stop by the museum if you're in the neighborhood.  Safe travels.
