Day 289 - A nave or a knave?

Today I discovered "nave" on a page in the dictionary with a bunch of words related to the sea. Nave is not a sea term, but is related to transportation. The nave is the hub of the wheel. Marianne posted a picture of and more info on this particular vehicle last October.

I've only known nave in this definition:
The central part of a church, extending from the narthex to the chancel and flanked by aisles.

Gosh, Lew, that is a real old wheel. I used to get to see wooden wheels on many kinds of farm wagons but none with the wooden peg on the axel to keep the wheel from falling off. I remember watching Tommy Rice, our blacksmith, fit a hammered out iron tire for the outside of a wooden wheel and when it fit he doused it with water and that shrunk the iron and made it fit skin tight. It also kept the wood from burnig as it was almost white hot.
