Default unbelievable - 411 driven for first time in 9 years

Okay. Try this for size.
Last year I sheared off three or four nuts from the wheels of one of our
water thingies for the horses.
The base was a pre-war axle from a truck.
Did I or did I not know that they were clever enough then to put right-hand
threads on the left-hand wheels?
(Or the other way around, I'm that stupid).
Anyway, I wrecked the whole thing as a result..
I still think a good "wrench" (in the old-fashioned sense) is good enough to
tighten up normal wheel nuts.
Good luck!
With best regards,
