« Part 14: Jig for making tractor wheels Part 15 of Combine series Part 16: Little different/extra »

Normal I make the wheels on the lathe, but this time I did it without. It was an enjoyable experience. Below you can see how it was done.

Great process for making the wheels Jan. I love all those details, especially when get such good results. Not sure why you are putting a rust color on the wheels. Is it supposed to be the dirt from the crop field adhering?

Thanks Mike.

Do you know the ebonizing process?
A mix from steel wool and vinegar (the steel wool get rusty) is put on wood with much ley, europeen oak for example.
After it is put on the wood the wood will directly get black. My vinegar/steel wool is a bit too old I think and that’s why it is so yellow. But after drying it is dust and easy to clean.
