Wooden Tires Made
By Dicus Creating
(Continued from page 1)
ing Company, of awannanoa;
Grace Lumber Company, of Lake
Junaluska ; Swannanoa Laundry,
of Asheville, and others.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Dicus
stated that the research depart
ment of the Champion Paper and
Fibre Company is, and has been,
working with him constantly,
along with the heads of all the
companies above mentioned, and
the tire is a creation brought about
by the experience in tests on the
one hand and on the other hand by
work, initiative, and experience
gained by the builder during this
While sufficient time has not
elapsed to enable the users to fully
determine the mileage contents in
the tires, they generally agree that
they are better than any of the
wooden tires used by them, and be
lieve them to have real merit.
The tire is constructed under
methods that will give it the most
possible strength, being made up
from black eum. a wood of the
toughest specie that the woods a''
ford, according to Mr. Dicus.
The segment is laminated by
srluine up several boards cut to
where the grains come in place
slightly cross-grained, using a new
waterDroof marine elue- Alter pe
ine erlued together they are dowel
ed with wooden dowels, the dowels
are staraered: that is to say, no
dowel runs in the same identifical
direction, thus making a further
reinforcement for the wooden
After the segment is glued up
in the block form, it is then sawed
nut to nerfect curvatures by an
ingenious device. Mr. Dicus has
constructed a wooden table that
fits over the band saw with auxili
ary Tiivot tables, holding devices
and other necessary requirements,
which enable him to get the exact
desired cuts. The blocks are cut
into wedge shape, seven to eight
MopVs to the tire, depending on
the size of the wheel.
The segments, after being fash
ioned into the proper sizes, and
in proper place, fit as a solid mass.
The bolts enter up through the
steel wheel rim, entering into the
center of the segment, running to
a position somewhat near the mid
dle of the block.
A large horizontal hole is pro
vided to receive a larger size
round iron. The center of the
larger iron is drilled and threaded
and receives the bolt. The bolt
screwing into the larger iron
creates a T iron and a down
tension on the block, pulling the
block into perfect position on the
rim and also creating a tension
on the ends of the blocks.
Another section is built up in
the same manner for wearing
tread, except for the holding pro
visions. The wearing tread is
doweled or nailed on to the top
of the segments and when they are
worn out or their usefulness is
over, may be removed and new
wearing treads installed.
Mr. Dicus stated that any ama
teur can replace the treads and all
that is required is a drill to pre
pare the holes where the wooden
dowels are used. The tread block
may be put on with wooden dowels,
thus eliminating metal to the mini
mum- The average weight of the
metal used in the tires where
wooden dowels are used would be
approximately seven pounds and
two ounces. Where nails are usea
no preparation is necessary, mere
ly nailing the tread in place is all
that is needed, and additional wear
may be obtained by the nails as
the nails wear down with the wood.
The companies trying out the
tires are using them under var
ious conditions in hauling various
size loads. The truck tires are
designed to haul exceptionally
large loads and especially where
equipped with steel as a wearing
tread- The steel used is flat steel
usually four inches by one-half
inch and is swaged on similar to
a wagon tire.
Mr. Dicus feels sure that the
War Production Board will give
him priority rating that will
enable him to put the steel on the i
average Users' truck. The steel
tires may have to go on trucks
used exclusively for war time pur
poses. He does not, of course, rec
ommend as heavy a load on the
wooden tread wheel as is being
hauled on the steel treaded tires.
Mr. Dicus stated that 12,000
pounds may be hauled with the
steel treaded tires with no dam
age to the tire. The wood tread,
he believes, will be adequate to take
care of any light hauling equip
ment such as laundries, dairies, and
any loads up to two or three tons.
