  • Washers for 1/4" axles

    For those of you who make, or want to make wheeled toys.

    The common wood axles supplied for wheels with 1/4" holes are actually 7/32". If, like me, you want use a washer behind the wheel you may find 7/32" washers to be hard to find. A 1/4" will work, but it is a bit loose. A 6 mm washer is exactly the size needed and most of the big box home centers will carry them.

      Hello Everyone,

      I currently cut with a DeWalt and a RBI Hawk 226 scroll saw.

      I was on ebay this morning and saw local to me a Hegner M18 with stand and accessories for $800 or best offer.

      I'd love to try a Hegner but the age of the saw has me concerned. It says...

      That is one where you tell Kevin we really don't need to know until at least 6 months after it happened. There are lots of crazy people out there....
