    Yep--I have to say I had forgotten they even existed until I saw Tackit's post--a true flash from the past.

    I would like to have found more of them. Their probably in China's Olympic Buildings along with every farm scrap pile in America. .

    They were free too. I don't guess they are easy to find today though..

    Repurposing old semi trailer steel wheels

    I wanted to put steel wheels on my 700 lb mill, I was going to roll them but went to my friend's weld shop and searched through his steel pile in back of the shop first, where I found these old trailer wheels, I drilled them out and pushed brass bushings into the axle holes.
Working...
