    I have a 31" wagon wheel I bought off someone at work. I'm trying to find someone to make me a stencil that says, "Jesus take the wheel" what I want to know is..... what could I purchase so that the wagon wheel can spin..... it doesn't have to spin... just an idea I was thinking about. I'll attach a picture of the wheel

    You'll need to find the stud and mount a bracket with an axle and a retainer.

    You can piece the letters for the stencil yourself.

    Old dog, I'll look at Michaels and see if they have any fonts that I like.

    As snoopy said, find a wall stud, you could use a large bolt for a makeshift axel.

    Use a large lag screw that has a hex or square head and add washers to hold the hub.

    How often do expect to spin the wheel? May be better to spend time and energy on other projects.

    Slownsteady.... I actually thought about this at work today.... asking myself.... shannon, what are you doing? Why cant you just be normal..... bahahahaha I feel like I may need to spin it frequently in order to deal with my personal life..... but.... I think it should hang and not spin because after all if it can spin... I'm not letting Jesus take the wheel....
    So, after much thought.... it's just going to hang.

    Thankfully, i go to the occupational health dr tomorrow and hopefully at least get a game plan and possibly a referral to an orthopedic surgeon....
    This attempting to be womanly is killing my brain :-/ lol
