LOL yeah, but turning it by hand when both ends are fixed in the truck frames is somewhat different than what I was visioning. :D

Lake Shore Lines

the tool does one side at a time. Only one side has the reamer on it. You will need to flip it at least once for each side of the truck.


If you are looking for bulk metal wheels I know Intermountain has 33" an 36" in a silver plated style. LBF also has bulk wheels in 33" and 36" sizes but theirs are a brown color, a littel more realistic and only about $50 dolalrs for 100 compared to $75 dolars with intermountain for the same amount. Also branchline just realeased some packs of 33" and 36" wheels I think enough to do 3 cars for $10
