Need eight X 5", machined wheel blanks

Post by PRR5406 » Tue Mar 17, 2020 2:41 pm

Hello, we're constructing a locomotive and require eight, 5" diameter, wheels. Interested in purchasing already machined or blanks which can be turned down to 5" size. 3/4" bore is desired. Steel or iron, but steel preferred.

Call Mike at RRSC. The diesel wheels are 5" in diameter, 3/4 bore. The last ones that I got from him were CNC machined steel. No key way and no set screw holes.

The setscrews and key way, I added for my purposes.
