According to local guy who is about 88 now , many of the older wood spoke wheeled cars had replacements wheels from other models of cars. He said the
wood spoke wheels often failed before the car. He did have an Overland and was at car show many years ago and was asked where he got his wheels ? He replied "I made them" was then asked if he would him a set he said yes,
and began home business making wheels and sent them all over the world.
He was a Machinest and tried to get that kind of work for his shop, all he could get was one or two items or repair work. He also taught machining at local high school , so by accident he became a wheel maker. He is very talented man his machine work is impressive , some of his machines were old reconditioned line shaft equipment, he has a metal planer about 2 foot by 6foot drill press and band saw that were formerly driven by line shaft. walking in to his machine shop is step back in time.
scariest thing to hear " I am from the government and i am here to help"
