"Anaconda" Self Oiling Wheels and Axles are made to suit any gauge. Either steel or chilled iron wheels are used.The wheels are pressed on half axles and turn independently, permitting the car to be hauled with great ease. A cast-iron sleeve serves as a support for the axles and as an oil reservoir. The sleeve is bored to fit the axle and enters the hub ofeach wheel, with a sufficient-ly close fit to prevent the loss of oil. The object in having the axle divided in the center is to allow for variations in number of revolutions of opposite wheels in passing curves and over bad track. The inside end of the half-axle is provided with a groove, into which is placed a fork, stradling the axle and holding same in position.Each sleeve is provided with two lugs for attaching either wooden or iron car bodies. All parts are made to exact gauges, and are absolutely interchangeable.
