I dont know when but I am sure glad it happened.lol I learned that if you put a tarp under the work area you dont have to try finding ball bearings rolling out of sight on the garage floor.

I like the patent page for reference. When I work on wheels with loose bearings, I place the wheel on a five gallon bucket to catch the bearings that fall and use an old piece of split hose on the rim for a cushion.

From an 1898 copy of the The Wheel.

These guys started the Star Ball Retainer Co. (Star) in Lancaster, PA. The Star cabinets that pop up occasionally are made by this company.
Thanks that's one I will find for my library
