  • looking for wheels

    I'm looking for someone who sells metal die-cast wheels, 3" in diameter with 12 spokes, which are typically used for making miniature Amish buggies. My local store no longer carries them, and the owner refuses to let me in on who his supplier was. Please help! Thanks.

    1st: Welcome to the board, it looks like this is your first post. I hope you enjoy you visits to this forum.

    2nd: I did try to google for your request, which I presume you did also, but I couldn't come up with anything close to metal wheels for a scale model wagon.

    Aside: I had no idea there were so many places that sold full size and 1/2 scale model 'western style' wooden wagon wheels for home decorating. It seems these wagon wheels are for hanging on the wall or making wooden deck safety rails out of.

    3rd: I did find some wooden scale model wagon wheels, but they were about 1/2 inch less than your 3 inch size. (www.bearwood.com)

    Sorry for being no help.

    Phil

      Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

      Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

      Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

      I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

      Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
