f you love toys, then you've likely encountered the need to make wheels at some point. Fortunately, there are many methods you can use to make wheels, and in this post, I will discuss my favorite method of making wheels.

My preferred method of making wheels involves drilling the center holes first, cutting the wheels out with a scroll saw, and sanding them using a belt sander and a jig to sand the wheels perfectly round. The jig, a dowel in a piece of wood clamped at an appropriate distance from the sanding belt, makes the process fast and easy. The result is a hundred perfectly round and sanded smooth wheels.

One of the most significant advantages of this method is its simplicity. The jig is so straightforward that I don't bother keeping them. This simplicity makes it easy to make wheels of any size.

My method is an excellent option if you need a quick and efficient way to make many perfectly round and smooth wheels. It's particularly suitable for mass-producing toys.

To summarize, if you enjoy making toys, you must know how to make wheels. You can quickly and efficiently produce many wheels using a scroll saw, a belt sander, and a jig. Although it may not be appropriate for every circumstance, it's worth considering if you need to make a lot of wheels in a short time.
