What is the "official" name of the washer that prevents the wheel from slipping off the end of the axle?
(I've describee the washer at Lowes, Home Depot or Ace Hardware but no one knows what I'm talking about)
I've put the wheel onto the axle. What is the "official" name of the washer that's pounded onto the axle that prevents the wheel from slipping off the end of the axle?
(I've described the washer at Lowes, Home Depot or Ace Hardware but no one knows what I'm talking about).
The Push Nut Cap fits on the end of the axle.
I need a "washer" that can be pounded 1"-2" along the axle.
The "washer" I need looks something like an Internal-Tooth Lock Washer at http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-lock-washers /e0do4
The diameter of the axle is 1/2"

more/correct info in a new *post*, not a new *thread*.

GG shows 2 threads related to his question:
The one I am currently replying in: Hand truck axle washer
And this one: Re: Hand cart axle
Granted, the Re: Hand cart axle does not appear to be a complete thread,
as the first post appears to be an answer, not a question from GARYWC. My
guess is that the original post had already been downloaded and responded to
before the cancellation request propagated throughout usenet, so remnants
of the thread still exist.
AFAIK, the ability to fully cancel a usenet post is hit-or-miss.
Stolen without permission from:
"To better understand canceling, consider what it technically means. When you
post something your posting propagates as a file throughout the net. Copies
of your file are carried by the news server services all around the world on
the hard disks of the service providers (ISPs). When you "cancel" your posting
with your newsprogram what really happens is this. Your program sends out
another, special-format posting from you. It is called a cancel-message. In
fact it is nothing more than another file sent to propagate all through the
system. The file is in a special format. It contains among other things the
message identification of your original message, which you want erased from
the servers carrying your original posting. Whether your original message is
actually deleted from a server (canceled in that sense) depends on whether
the service in question honors cancel-message files or not. There are a lot
of servers on Internet which ignore such cancel files. Thus there is no
guarantee that your original message will actually disappear. What is certain
though, is that the longer you take to cancel (i.e. tell your newsprogram to
send out the cancel file), the more certain it is that your original message
has reached sites which do not put your cancel-message suggestion into effect.
In sum, if you want to cancel, do it right away. After a few days, even hours,
your cancel will be much less effective."

OK, I took that to mean that you were saying it is up to each usenet
provider to allow users to cancel their posts or not. My apologies.
Since we are both talking about the propagation of that request, it looks
like we are on the same page.
I have used several who cancel on their server, and if you're quick
enough, the original doesn't propagate. It definitely can't be trusted
to work as intended and propagate the request to receptive servers.
'Cuz google groups is a web interface, primarily.
But, even if they do honor 'Cancel' on their own servers, usenet
postings are distributed to all servers so once it's gone, it's gone and
exists on and will continue to be distributed to all other usenet
servers that monitor the particular group so it's futile even if one or
The upshot is usenet is not a user web forum.
