Found some gold wheels at Harbor freight today, on sale, for $5.99, with tires. Used a couple of 5/8 bolts for axles. Had to get 4 inch bolts so they would have a long enough shoulder for the bearing to ride on. Need to trim the threads, or add some spinners.LOL. The wheels are fine for the smoker, but I wouldn't suggest using them on anything that needs to be moved much. Tightened down the nuts on the axle finger tight and the bearings feel like they have rocks in them instead of balls. Was surprised when I rolled it around, couldn't feel the roughness, so I think it will work. You get what you pay for.
Need to slick up the sidewalls.
Big nasty weld. Flat head on bolt, round tube on leg, Had to get enough weld for strength.
Welds cleaned up real nice, good blended look.
Decided I would try to fill the little imperfections. Read the JB quick package and says it will withstand 300 degrees. Waiting on it to cure so I can sand it down and get some primer on it. 4 hours is what it says, above 70 degrees with less than 60% humidity. A thunderstorm and some hail all evening. I am sure the humidity is high, because it has been 4 1/2 hours and not hard yet. It is set up and not tacky, but I am afraid if I try to sand, it will peel and not feather on the edges. Really want to get some primer on it tonight, I want to smoke a butt tomorrow. If it is not fully cured by morning, it will be after a smoke.
