Looks good from over hereSeptember 17 2022
I finally had a chance to start my trailer wheel conversion .....
Seems like there's always time to work for others but seldom
time to do things for myself..... Lol

Im proud of this little $23 1/4 inch hole ,.......
None of the drill bits I had would drill this hub .
I ran to Lowe's and picked up a few Cobalt bits ..
They did just fine..
Unfortunately by this time the hole is off center .
Ohhh well crap happens ....

I broke out the new 1/2 inch gear reduction drill and loaded it up with a 1 3/8 hole saw.
I had to put a longer pilot bit in the hole saw then I went to cutting ....

As you can plainly see it turned out far from perfect.
Hopefully this hack job will Balance out .... View attachment 229816
The cut on the lower left doesn't look to bad .
But every time I turned the hub for the next cut the
Positioning just kept getting worse ....
The hub almost fits.
Hopefully with a little clean up with the Dremel tool it will fit.

Now comes the hard part.
I have to find that dang Dremel tool .
A place for everything and everything in it's place ..
But where that place is I haven't a clue ....
Hopefully I will find it by Christmas so I can get on with this project ....
When / if I do another wheel I will use a 1 1/4 inch hole saw .....
I will also try to do less of a hack job and get the cuts a little more precise .
Ohhh well It is what it is
