I believe that is one of the cast wheeling machines that were built by John Crossley in Canada, that I have referred to in an earlier post.

I just sold one recently for 2200. Perhaps I sold it too cheap, but I doubt this machine is worth 5k.. For that money you could get a Tommasini wheel with Hoosier anvils, and have a much better machine. Thanks for posting the link Bill, nice to keep up on what things are bringing...

AND...... It has a small top wheel and lower anvils ....going by what my engineer told me when we where discussing how to build mine, the arch at the top is too tall for the width of the machine over all which means it would flex
Peter
PS As I keep when saying.... when design a wheel frame one need to look at a few things but mainly .... composition of material, design and where most of the load is going to be,+ have the strengthening ribs in the right place

I'm with Robert on this one. As I spend more time using the wheeling machine and currently having two each of fabricated and cast machines, (I have them set up to do different things), I am gaining more and more trust in what Peter has been telling me all along. It is even getting clearer why Peter said to put the rubber pads under the feet of his cast wheeling machines. In addition to the 'feel' normally associated with using it, I have noticed that the sound is often as good a clue as to the pressure required.

Will, I completely agree about the "sound" of the wheels when you've found the sweet spot. Seems especially true with cast wheels.

There's that old engineering saying that "If it looks right, it is right." Comparing Peter's casting to the Trident's... Peter's is "right".

Just off the topic, Well not really.
But I have a Question!.
What is the purpose of the full top shaft.
* reduce flex, more strength or to fit a drive wheel on it.

It was explained to me that the shaft is used to when you want to make it act like a bead roller!

Thank you for posting this . I had actually considered purchasing this particular Trident wheel several months ago as the owner had contacted me prior to it being posted online. I have (had) been comparing it to purchasing a wheel from Peter. Obviously buying that Trident would be more convenient ( as it sounds as if getting one Peter's machines shipped to California might be difficult) , but with those pizza cutter thin anvils and top wheel you all have confirmed my suspicions about this tool. Thank you.
