A couple months ago, while building on my new woodworking shop at our cabin, I was pummeled by flying dirt when one of the tires on my air compressor exploded. Obviously a weak spot . . or too much filling?!
Since the compressor was sitting on the ground between a couple of the main floor beams and about 150’ from its storage spot in the back of the cabin, I had to devise a means of moving the rather heavy machine.
With the aid of a compass, drill, bandsaw and table sander, I found a workable solution. Next trip to the cabin I changed out to an original rubber tire . . . which is much easier to roll across the rocky ground!
I did, however keep the spare.
