Rolling the Wheels

Its an ancient old machine but with a bit of brute force it has little  difficulty rolling the back wheels. It's a shame it can't roll my back back into shape after using it.  Given time I will bring it into the 21st century with a little electrification. 20/04/07 electrification has taken place and the wheel are much easier to roll
