Hi All
Just joined the group - lots of interesting threads to read.
I am looking to make a Blizzard toy for my first grandchild - due later in the year.
does anyone have for sale/ know where I can buy the 4” wheels - black tyre, red hub - made by Hitchin Components Ltd.
I’ve searched the web and seen a few old adverts on eBay but nothing available.
Many thanks
Keith

Thanks for quick reply Vankou
Just looked at their site. They have plain flat wheels, but not the type I was looking for.
attached pictures from their site and a picture of the type I am looking for.

Hi Keith. Have a look at their TW100 wheels. The photo they show only displays one side but I think the other side is moulded exactly as in your photo. I purchased some from them around 5 months ago to make my Grandson a toy tractor and have a spare one in front of me as I write this reply. It is exactly as in your photo assuming that you want a 100mm wheel although they may also do something in a larger diameter.
I hope you find what you are looking for.

I've made four Mac trucks, the fire engine and the fork lift from the Blizzard book. Rather than buy wheels, I turned them on lathe which allowed me to make them more authentic.

This is one of the trucks showing wheels. As you see, I changed design from original drawing.

Hi, Keith, which Blizzard toy are you making. I've made many including the fork lift truck shown in my avatar.
Hi
I’m part way through making the V8 Landrover.
woodwork is fun, finding all the extra bits is the difficult part.
