Default NEW cast iron wheels

Hi all,

Here is a good source of new cast iron wheels, they are about the same sort of prices that the older wheels sell for, and less in some cases.

I have just ordered some of the 100mm ones for my JAP, they are quite reasonably priced I think.

I'll let you know what their like.

how long do you think that current price of 4 for those 100mm wheels will stay like that for a while? or is a limited time offer :L

Wheels arrived today.

They are to a good standard and very much look the part.

I will start work on the trolley for the JAP 5 tomorow and will post a picture when finished.

I've been getting similar looking wheels from the local scrapey.
They all come off hydraulic floor jacks that get thrown out.
Brilliant they are. And usually extremely cheap.

Excellent, I wish I could find them round here, but at least these ones off "the net" are quite affordable. Only the smallest wheels mind!

Cool 4" Cast Iron Wheels

Hi Phill

Just had a look at those 4" wheels and they look just the job for one of my up and coming trolley projects, so I have decided to order 4 of them.

It seems to be a promotional offer so not sure how long this price will last, if I had some spare cash I might be tempted to buy more and put them into stock.

Cheers, Gerry.

You won't be disapointed, don't expect the castings to be dead accurate, but for the money they are superb. Better than some of the original cast wheels I have seen.

Cool 4" Cast Iron wheels

Hi Phill

I got them ordered this afternoon before knocking off work, look forward to receiving them next week some time. Thanks again for bringing them to my attention, I had heard of the bearing boys but hadn't used them before.

Cheers, Gerry.
