I’ve been wanting an English Wheel for a long time, but they are pretty costly pieces of equipment, and I didn’t have room for one earlier. But some suitable scrap metal came my way and I decided to use it to build one – thus saving a a little money. Of course you can get a made-in-china English Wheel for about 400 to 500 euro, but I really didn’t like spending that much. So – we made use of what ever metal we had.
There’s a ton of instructions on making an English Wheel on the internet so this is not a tutorial on how to make one. Just a few pics of what we did.
There’s also a ton of videos on how to use one on Youtube, so check those out if you want more info. That’s basically how I figured this stuff out.
So – all in all – by making the English Wheel by ourselves we saved a little money and it was actually fun to figure out everything. The total cost was about 200 to 250 euro.
