    What kind of steel should the wheels be made from, something like S7 or O-1 or 1018?

    there are several sites out there that offer compleat kits with plans and the wheel and anvels, some offer a 2 sided setup with a planishing hamer on the other side. the hammer is just a mounted hand held impact hammer. the 2 realy go togather well and should be a pair, some sets make the 2 sets interchange so you can use the same frame and just change back and forth between the hamer and wheel.

    here are pic's of the one i made. i have not made the english wheel yet but will be making one with tractor bearings for the wheel insted of spending the big $$ for the ones from the sites. just goot to many things going on right now but i'll get back to it soon enough ... ...... i think.

    good luck on it and be shore to post up some pic's as you get it going.

    English Wheel Plans Comp.

    I did a search of the archives and found the site you mention. I think it is just the plan for what I would need in my shop. Just another tool to add to the collection for when it is needed.

    English Wheel

    I built one of the English Wheels from the plans shown on the following web site. http://www.roddingroundtable.com/tec.../12ewheel.html
    Upper wheel is a bearing and I turned the bottom wheel from a section of Stainless Steel. Frame is 1x3 tubing. The bottom rectangle tube is 19". The upright tube is 8", and the upper horizonal tube is 13". I have no need for the wheel, but it made a interesting project.

    Was a fun project

    English Wheel Plans from project Competition

    I really like the bench top english wheel shown in the project competition. I was hoping the person who designed the wheel could contact me. I would like a set of measured drawings if that's possible. Contact me here or at my regular email address. [email protected] Thank you.
