In the barn Katie has been joined by Sara for Blockfest 2010. As part of the annual cycle we are tearing down all the blocks, sanding and painting the cheeks, cleaning and greasing the patent bearings, and even replacing a few bearings that have worn with time. With the right combination of bushings I am able to replace the worn patent bearings completely with a relatively maintenance free oilite bearing. The bottom line is that a little extra work now will alleviate alot of work later.
Well that is it for now. Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
