  • Car Toy Parts

    Morning ladies and gentlemen - I am new to this forum and I have been scrolling for a number of years and still consider myself a novice even though my work turns out pretty good if I do say so myself - well people buy it - so I must be at least ok !

    But I have a question for the scrollers of toy cars and trucks - I have been making my own hub caps by sawing 1" beads with a 3/8" hole in half and sanding them even - no problem and easy to do. But it's a pain and I have seen them in scroll books and mags pre-made.

    Problem is I cannot find anyone that carries them - I've tried all the big name hobby shops and even the mom and pop ones to find them but to no avail.

    Does anyone here have an idea where these may be found, either online of physical storefront -- I'm from Evergreen Park, IL - just outside Chitcago.

      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
