>I have an older neighbor that makes and restores wagon wheels. The price of the hubs have become prohibitive and I'd like to try and help him make some.
They are, mostly, 13" long, 8" diameter with a tapered hole in the middle, from 4" down to 3".
I can see boring a 3 inch hole but can't visualize making an accurate taper with all the leverage involved. Does anyone have ideas or know anything about the process? Are tapered reamers involved? Any insight would be appreciated
Thanks in advance, Nick
