Hahaha yea those are another monster. More than once I’ve been doing donuts in a field or on pavement trying to get that outer wheel to break free! What a pain!I cringe everytime someone has to pickup a sledge to bust a wheel free. Nightmares of duals on tractors is enough to make a man cry
People think I am crazy, but I grease the mating side of every wheel before putting it back on. Especially aluminum wheels. Keeps me from having to beat the hell out of them to get them off. Works like a charm.
A little wire brushing and then some anti-seize… those hubs looked like the Tinman from wizard of oz before I put the wheels back on. I don’t think I’ll have this much trouble next time. LolI‘m a firm believer in snug em down as even as you torque them…. Like Jon, a little anti seize won’t hurt either.
Not to derail but I found the “America First” sticker funny, on a Chinese made tool box lolThis cabinet came from a laboratory at OSU and has always been a part of my dad's workshop. He had an old drafting table top on it with his grinder and a drill press. He left me the grinder and I put my own drill press on it, but those are not chores I want to do in the new version of the workshop. Once I committed to moving the lower half of my toolbox to the shop, I committed to redoing this and putting it in the garage. Took about 4 hours to complete the swap and do the makeover on this thing. This is actually a much better storage arrangement in terms of what tools/supplies go where, so I'm pretty pleased with the trade out. Gonna work on the other side of the swap tomorrow.

When it comes to processing deer, or any animals/fish for that matter, the value of having all of your tools and necessary facilities at arms reach can’t be overstated. It makes the whole process so much easier and more enjoyable. You’re going to like that setup, Jesse.
Curious though, do you find the wood surface hard to clean when you process there or do you use a cutting board?
