Building 1,018 lb Wagon Wheel For a Chandelier | Engels Coach Shop

This 1,018 pound wagon wheel will be turned into a chandelier. This is the final building process, including hot setting a 553 pound steel tire in an open fire. This wheel is made using a red oak hub and ash for the spokes and felloes. The Borax rear wheels weighed 1,080 pounds, but used a white oak hub and red oak spokes and felloes. The overall dimensions however are the same. The steel tire is 1" inch thick and 8" wide.

Many of you are interested in the tire bolts and rivets I use in my videos. Since I use a large number of these, I do keep them in stock. An email to [email protected] will get you a list of available sizes and pricing.

In response to a number of requests for the tools and supplies I use here in the shop, I have compiled a list as an Amazon Associate. I have used Makita tools for almost 40 years, but am not sponsored by, nor endorsed by Makita. Perhaps this list will be of service to you as viewers, as well as provide a means to help support this channel.

These are not cheap, home improvement tools. I use tools hard so I use high quality tools. These prove to be less expensive in the long run.
