I was at a fabric store tonight and ALL the shopping carts felt like you
were pushing a "Zamboni"--it was the little pieces of lint and thread that
had gotten into the wheel wells.
Last year they hired a guy who took a pair of tweezers and worked ALL DAY
on 10 carts!!
Is there anything they can spray or soak the wheels in that will
"dissolve" the lint and threads enough so that a pair of long nose pliers
would be all you would need and it would be an easy job!!!!????
If they are metal hubbed wheels, you can flash over the bearing area
with a pencil flamed blow torch just long enough to burn off the
If they are rubber wheels with a brass sleeve on a steel pin, if the
pin is removable, that is the way to go. If not, an exacto knife
works quicker than a needle nose pliers.
