Wheel Fixtures - The medium-duty wheels donated by Wagner Castors are used on small dollies built in the lab to facilitate moving the heavier/larger artifacts around during their conservation. The carriages, built to support and move the Belle's bronze cannon and eight cannon from the Fort Saint Louis site, use these wheeled dollies.

Waterpiks - Waterpiks donated by Teledyne Waterpik Corporation are used in the casting process of concretions. We have used waterpiks for over 20 years to clean out the natural molds left in encrustations by the corrosion of metal artifacts. The pulsating jet of water they produce is ideal for this purpose. Short 4- to 6-in. sections of tubing donated by Action Technologies are fastened to the hand unit to enable the conservator to get into deep and/or narrow recesses. This step is necessary before the mold can be filled with epoxy.
