WHEEL BEARING MAINTENANCE WORKSHOP Rob once again had his wheel bearing &
maintenance workshop demonstrating the procedure of removing the hub from the
axle, with a bearing & stub axle inspection. He also showed how to replace a set of
bearings by removing the cone from the hub. Greasing of the bearings, reassembly
included installation of the bearings & seal & correct tension of the castle
nut. Don't forget to tighten the wheel nuts because your wheel might fall off.
DREAM CATCHER WORKSHOP
Clancy once again showed his artistic skill by demonstrating how to make
Americans believe dreams were messages sent by sacred spirits. They say
that the hole in the center of a dream catcher web allows good dreams to
reach the sleeper, while the web itself traps the bad dreams until they
disappear with the first light of morning.
Materials used are
basket-weaving reed, string or twine,
beads, feathers & yarn.
The Cobb workshop was rescheduled a day owing to the total fire ban the previous
day. Gus jumped into the saddle after Jill wasn't feeling real well & did a
great job demonstrating how to go about cooking a roast in the
John also showed that a
Bedourie Camp Oven fits perfectly into the Cobb & can be used in
conjunction with the heatbeds to cook a meal.
