tire upsetter

tire upsetter

Description:

A rusty iron tire upsetter for wagon wheels. On The long part it reads " PAT.1883 A.B JARDINE & CO. HESPELER ONT" along with the makers mark which is a J in a diamond. Sometimes, because of things like the tire stretching or the wood parts shrinking, the iron wagon tire would become loose on the wheel. In particular, in dry weather the wheel might dry out and shrink enough for the tire to come off. The cure was to have a blacksmith shrink the tire, using a tire upsetter to compress a section of the tire and thus shorten the tire circumference. The item was found on the Perkins brothers lot attached to the old Pemberton Express building that was owned and operated by Bob Taylor. The Perkins brothers moved the building to their industrial lot on Urdal road in the 1970s.
