Wenger - side foot treadle to wheel crank connection

Recommended Posts

Friend new to potting has picked a kick wheel with side foot treadle. The arm from foot treadle is disconnected from the wheel  crank, not sure what's broken or missing.  If anyone could post me a pic of their wenger connections, would appreciate, thanks

Hulk I thru on a metal treddle like this in Cambodia a few years ago(3 years). No mass to spin and it worked pretty good. The whell was a bit different than this Wenger model but same idea.

The mass was the wheel head and clay and you need to be constantly using your leg a power . After 48 years of power wheels all these types of wheels seem a burden to some degree for me.

Tbese tredle wheels are way lighter to move around and pretty small compared to a cement kick wheel. 

On a simialair note I traded in my Fred Flintsone car decades ago because the stone wheels where heck to keep balanced

Feels good to laugh, thanks!

Yabba dabba dooo! My folks used to let me stay up for new episodes (way back, when we returned to the States, 1961...), 8 p.m. air time; I almost alway nodded off shorty after the opening montage...

I can hardly imagine running a kick or treadle - too many aches and pains a'ready. I'd try it, if'n there were no alternative...
