Broken Springs Are Made
Into Effectie Tire Tools
; Have you ever stopped on a coun
try road, several miles from the
, nearest garage, to change a tire and
find you had either lout or left your
itlre tool at home? Then you realis
ed . what an Indispensable Item of
equipment the lowly tire tool is In
fitting a clincher, tire on to rim.
: Drivers of th H. Goodrich' Rubber
company tire testing cars have
dlved the problem jof upply by
transforming broken springs into tire
tools. , ,-
' It's a simple process. Here's how a
home-made tire tool is made: Touch
up, with emery cloth, the thin end of
a very old spring. The old springs
are easily converted into tools, be
cause of the thin end usually wear
ing into a very sharp point, thus ne
cessitating but a slight application
o the emery cloth.
A broken spring makes an excel
lent tire tool for a clincher tire,"
said one of the Goodrich drivers,
"and can be quickly made by anyone
at no expense. We have found in
operating our fleets of test cars that
tire tools are misplaced or lost more
than any other tool box item. Slnco
our mechanics discovered- the
"spring tool" we always have an
ample supply on hand."

A certain Irish sergeant In one of
the home regiments was exceedingly
wroth when he discovered that one
