English Wheel

A good way to burn up a weekend and a some days before and after. Built an english wheel to replace the Harbor freight one I have been playing with. The first and last one I will build, I hope. Frame is 5x5inch 1/4 wall tubing. Does a nice job of putting shape in the test panel. Need to build some legs for it too.


  1. nice job...may i suggest reinforcing it a bit more on the outside, perhaps with a piece of 1/4 or 3/8 plate..you dont want it to open at all..it will move the metal alot faster the better it is supported..again, looks sweet and i enjoy your blog...

  2. It does flex some. I may truss it before I'm done
