The Creation Begins with Destruction

The trailer has been re-located down next to the cabin. I've got the pressure-treated lumber to build the base. And if my motivation keeps up, I should have it framed in by the end of the summer. Hopefully.

Brakes & Hubs

There was spider egg-sack and cockroach casings inside.
I brushed all that out.
The brake shoes still had plenty of lining on them
and the drums didn't show any signs of wear. 

After it was all brushed out ...
here's a view of the spindle.
Notice that the inner and out bearings are different sizes.
1-1/4" & 1-1/16"  respectively.
New axles have 1-3/8" on the inner bearing ... 
which is 1/8" larger than mine, so my hub won't work on them.
although new axles would be nice, I don't want to have to replace everything.
