What type of wood was used on the chassis of the Arrow and 999?
If I aint mistaken a Brush had a wood frame or axle?
I would think hickory for the same reasons as the spokes on our T's but it looks like these cars had wire wheels?
Brush was the 1st car to have full floating axles..ha ha
woddin' axles, woodin' frame woodin run'
The Brush had iron pieces on the ends. I don't know if they would actually float or not? But that was good for a major laugh! Thank you BCG! I needed that.
In the case of Franklins and Stanleys I believe they are typically ash.
Well, yes Brushes are a 'little' underpowered. . . And the engines run the wrong direction. . .If memory serves me, spark and throttle work backwards too (but it's been about 25 years since I drove one).
BTW, Stanleys use wood reach rods between the axles, wood frame, but metal axles!!
