Important info about the wheel!!!

Prev1
excellent thread

The English word wheel comes from the Old English word hweol, hweogol, from Proto-Germanic *hwehwlan, *hwegwlan, from Proto-Indo-European *kwekwlo-,[1] an extended form of the root *kwel- "to revolve, move around". Cognates within Indo-European include Greek ?????? kýklos, "wheel", Sanskrit chakra, Old Church Slavonic kolo, all meaning "circle" or "wheel"

    A wheel is a circular component that is intended to rotate on an axial bearing. The wheel is one of the main components of the wheel and axle which is one of the six simple machines. Wheels, in conjunction with axles, allow heavy objects to be moved easily facilitating movement or transportation while supporting a load, or performing labor in machines. Wheels are also used for other purposes, such as a ship's wheel, steering wheel, potter's wheel and flywheel.

    Common examples are found in transport applications. A wheel greatly reduces friction by facilitating motion by rolling together with the use of axles. In order for wheels to rotate, a moment needs to be applied to the wheel about its axis, either by way of gravity, or by the application of another external force or torque.

    Of the 4 threads about the wheel on the first page, this one is BY FAR superior in every way.

    The 2nd mentioning of the wheel is a combination of "wheel and axle"

    The wheel is one of the main components of "the wheel and axle", which is one of the six simple machines.

    Do I need to sketch it out for you? I know not everyone who writes for Wikipedia is quite as eloquent as I am, but still, I felt it was clear.

    This thread is great. When I read and post in the other wheel-related threads, I am reminded of C-Span ... Outrage, dysfunction, wailing in the darkness, occasional snarky comments ...

    But THIS thread is The PBS Of Wheel Threads.

    Looks like Garfield's wheel has better odds and almost better prizes then the TSTO wheel.
