Axle Fitting

Hut Date: 2nd November, 2009

Continued from "Axle Rebuild" page.

... and it was off on a journey to fit the Shepherds Hut axles I had rebuilt and completed in August 2009.

This hut had a pitch pine chassis frame, and while the chassis ends stuck out in the wet beyond the tin cover sheets during all those many years, they didn't rot.  However, all the hardwood axle ends had all rotted and disintegrated.

The weather was kind which was lucky as it was an all day operation with a 7.50 a.m. start on site, and as you will see from the photo's, a finish in the dark!
