Interesting, So is that just a weed eater? Is it cluthched? Is it always "on"? Did you make the bracket? That looks great for the money!!

yeas it was a weed eater and it does have a clutch.i had the box part of it bent on a break and the spindle machined to match some new bearings i bought to support the pressure of the tire.

Thats great! Now I see your bearings and how they work. I also see now that you can use those two "quick release" bolts to lift it up off of the wheel. That is so smart and simple. The more I look at it the more I like it, great job!
