    Can you guys post any simple designs you've made for your own wheels?

    Maybe this will help. I made a bird flesher using a 1750 rpm washing machine motor pulled out of an old washing machine. Then put an arbor on the motor shaft and a 4" soft wire wheel on the arbor. Had to add an electrical cord and plug to the motor and use a power bar (since I had one) with an on/off switch for the switch. Also made a wood and plexiglass box with an open front. One of the clear plastic totes could be adapted to use for a box also The motor is mounted behind the box on a platform attached to the box and the height of the wire wheel was set to what is comfortable to wheel at. The motor shaft comes through the back of the box to the inside of the box where the arbor and wire wheel is attached to it. The wood portion of the box was coated with gelcoat so cleaning is easier. If you PM me your email address I have a photo of it. Photobucket is being difficult again so email will be easier.
