  • I Never Knew......... add. (carriage pic)

    Studebaker made one of these... Big 4 Studebaker Tire Machine?

    http://altoona.craigslist.org/tls/661147996.html

    You would never have to visit a tire shop again.
    Think of all the money you would save paying someone else to mount and dismount your tires.
    Oh forgot, then you need to buy a balancer.
    Oops, forgot about tire disposal...pile em in the back yard.

    I have a reproduction decal like this on the glove box door of the Orange truck.



    We've got an old tire changer similar to that, that we use regularly, but it ain't a Big 4. It also has no hydraulic anything on it.

      There was one on e-Bay a couple of weeks ago that could not draw an opening bid of $80.00.

        Were these actually made by the Studebaker Corporation?

        This thing looks like a real work horse.
        For the young enterpriser one would think this thing should work just great?

          We used to have one in our shop, i think it was older (different decal), and all manual (non pneumatic) it worked well changed many a tire on it, but it was kinda dangerous and a little awkward at times I still have it (not for sale) got replaced by a new coats 5040 machine

                  Nitram, what's that old H.D. maker's plate off of? Do you collect carriages and wagons? Guido has a fairly good collection started. You're definitely in the right location for that kind of thing. Three of my favourite auction, Carriage, and harness suppliers are located not very far from you.

                  By the by, back in the horse-drawn era, Studebaker patented a device to apply hard rubber to Carriage and wagon wheels.

                    The pic of the plate in my profile signature was taken from the back of this carriage.

                    This was at a Stude meet in Martinsburg I believe VA. in 2006. No I don't collect carriages due to my limited space. If I had the proper facility I sure would be collecting.
                    I've come to appreciate the horse and buggy mode of transportation more so now that I'm getting older. As you know in the Lanaster area we are surrounded by them every day.
                    I sure would love to have a team of work horses that I could work the soil with and pull a few wagons.
                    I think the older I get the more I long for the yesteryears on the farm.

                      Paul Johnson will correct me if I am wrong, but I believe it belongs to George Hamlin.
