18" Exercise Wheel

Jan 4, 2010

 18" Exercise Wheel

I threw together a fun 18" exercise wheel tonight for my sugar gliders. I found a decent donor plastic tub, cut off the excess, mounted an inside track using rivets and put the thing onto a hefty ball bearing system.

It's ugly but it is absolutely silent and it works. They love it.

I think I will continue exploring a good and safe design for this concept and I'll try to get some really good slow-mo videos in tent as well.

Please? Give us some more details. Did you tweak the design? Are you ready to share your how-to?

I'm wondering how you made that. I am in Canada and it is almost impossible to get wodent/stealth wheels here, and I would love to know how to make a wheel like that for them.

That is awesomely large! What does the back side of it look like? How did you attach the ball bearing? Spill!
