  • 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.

    I have been using plastic, recycled from water jugs(1 gallon). Either as a washer or as a shim for spacing. Just something to chew on.

      Rolf, you did a fantastic job on that cross, It is much more intricate than the Nativity cross. I will have to order that pattern as well. Thanks for sharing.

      Nice work on both of them! Sue has such an amazing selection. Here is another of her designs, I reduced it from the original size. Baltic birch ply on Walnut backer.

      Croaker very nice, I did a similar tribute. Sorry but I can't find a picture. It was the same Dirk Boelman pattern but I added a backer painted with red, white and blue stripes. There are many way to achieve the same effects.
