Re: Ajax brake wheel size.


Most wheels mounted vertically on power hand brake mechanisms are 22-inches in diameter which is within the A.A.R. standard. The A.A.R. standard for brake wheels mounted horizontally on vertical shafts is a minimum of 15-inches with 16-inches preferred.  Incidentally, between 1926 and 1994 Ajax produced 37 different models of hand brake wheels.

Does anybody know what exactly the outside diameter of the Ajax brake wheel measures? Going to use that measurement to figure out other details on the end.
