Ran across this and thought others would be interested; making a wagon wheel from start to finish:

You’re right. It worked when posted, but is probably lost in Facebook history.

While searching for it I ran across this, which is even more interesting – making 1000 pound wheels for a replica 20 mule team borax wagon. Imagine doing this entirely by hand in the old days, without even the old machinery shown.

OSHA would have a field day in this shop, with all the old machinery and no guards.
