Re: Need eight X 5", machined wheel blanks

Call Mike at RRSC. The diesel wheels are 5" in diameter, 3/4 bore. The last ones that I got from him were CNC machined steel. No key way and no set screw holes.

Re: Trailer Security

I watched one of the videos, nice. Many years ago, when I worked for a vending machine company, I would have to drill out a lock on a machine. Yes, they do fail and the route guy can't get in. Not a single person ever asked me what I was doing breaking into a vending machine, or whether or not that ...

Re: tab washers needed for restoration

Is this what you are looking for? I found this one at Grainger and is called a lock washer. Not very descriptive.

Re: Trailer Security

What woke me up was the day my next door neighbor who has a ramp truck and I went up on the interstate to pick up a friends enclosed two place snowmobile trailer that lost a wheel and hub.

Re: New Jersey: Cook Tool & Machine

USPS has gotten a lot better a tracking in the past 5 years or so. Before that, the package would be on my doorstep and their tracking would still say it was in the midwest somewhere. Now, it seems to be spot on and detailed.
