Re: Teaser on facebook

Ross, It looks like this '32 DeVaux that I am currently restoring has the same steeldraulic brakes, However I have wire wheels, I would imagine that the drum O.D.s are the same on either wood or wire...Thanks for digging into this, I was planning to put bands on my DeVaux and it looks like what you have done would be a good way to go...The lathe I have down here in AZ is a little on the small side but when I get back home in the spring I have a nice size lathe with a 12" four jaw chuck...Yes, I would appreciate any particulars that you have, It always saves a lot of head scratching...I am thinking that this would also be great information to have in our Technical page...Article? Thanks Ross! You the man.
