  • Wheels

    I am building a BBQ pit out of 22 inch pipie quarter inch wall. It will be 28 inches long. What kind of ideas do you'll have for wheels for it? They will have to be fairly sturdy.

    Heavy duty casters,,, I assume your going to have legs on it.

        If you have access to a large bandsaw, cut some 2" slices from large steel pipe ( say, 8"), then make a simple jig (could be wood) to hold a piece of thick walled pipe centered, drill and tap for zerk fitting, then weld some rod or rebar in for spokes. 'would add a real hand crafted look!

        It would be a snap to make it to accommodate a bearing, but you really shouldn't need one for occasional moves.

          Here is what I did on a pit I built awhile back. None of it is exact and there is defiantly more play then whats in a bearing but I bet it won't seize up either.

                Since it sits out in the weather and is a low use bearing that holds a lot of weight, the not exact fit is a good thing. I have access to a machine shop and would consider turning some brass bushings.
