 Foam-Tyre Wheels for Wind-up Toys

These are the wheels I use in my 'scuttlers' workshop.

They consist of a cotton reel fitted with a tyre made of pipe insulation and are supplied with a no.18 elastic band fitted.

You can save money by making them yourself - cotton reels and pipe insulation are available separately.

You will also need the wire frame to go with it or make your own (I make mine from 'giant' paper clips).

Tip: if you are on a really tight budget use card circles for wheels: see construction materials page
