Interesting tooling and video! I wonder if a similar tool would be helpful in mounting pneumatic clincher tires?

Thanks Mark

My dad's 1900 Waverley has straight side rims. There are wires inside the rubber and they are welded at the seam where the two ends of the rubber meet.

That tyre was cut to length with a knife, so there was no wire in it. The tooling would be of no use mounting a clincher tyre on a T rim, as the bead needs to be stretched to go over the rim sides. There is no join to allow the tyre to go on piece at a time like the solid rubber tyre in the video. Certainly an interesting video. I would hazzard a guess that the wheel is for a low speed horse drawn vehicle.

It was explained in the comments section of the video that there was no wire in it. In the U.S. wire is common for hard rubber carriage and early automobile tires. High wheel bicycle tires also have a wire in them.

It's a different procedure which does not require a clincher rim or beads on the rubber.

One or more wires run the length of the tire in side the rubber. The ends of the wire(s) are welded together. That is what holds the rubber tire on the rim.

Allan, I see your point about a clincher bead needing to be stretched. Too bad! :-)
