McCoy prototypes

I believe anybody who has the McCoy circus wagons is in the market for the replacement wheels (or soon will be).  I would think there would be quite a demand for them if the word gets out.  I am looking forward to getting his name so I can get some if the price is reasonable.  Would these be a candidate for 3-D printing?

Just contacted the source for these wheels and at the present time no new ones are being made-sorry-had some sort of problem with the last batch and at least for now decided it wasn't worth the hassle.

I have made an (.STL) drawing of the large wagon wheel for the McCoy Circus Wagons. If someone would like to try to making a 3D print of the wheel let me know and I will email the file. If this works I will make a 3D drawing of the small wheel.Large Waggon WheelLarge Waggon Wheel

Dave,

That is fantastic!  I know very little about 3-D printing except that I know you can send an appropriate drawing to a couple of companies and they will make the parts for you.  I've been trying to convince one of our club members who is into computers to buy a 3-D printer for me to use.  LOL.

Hopefully someone who knows more about this will step up to the plate.  If I knew any more about this I'd volunteer.  Unfortunately this is sort of buried in Parker's thread and may not get the exposure it deserves.

I'd love to see this go forward as there is a real market for these!

I agree, a separate thread may be a good idea. I could use about 7-10 complete sets.

Well right now it's dead i the water-last bunch didn't turn out right so the guys kind give up on them for the time being-but I did hoard a few sets back for my own use)
