I need  2 wheels
58" could use 55" to 62
Box 8 ½ X 3 ¾, but I could use  almost anything with a box more than 7" X 3"
60 ½" could use 57" to  64"
Box 9 7/16 X 4 ¾ 
Could use anything with a box more than 8 x  4.
Please reply off list.
Please pass on to anyone who may have  redundant wheels.
I can repair the existing wheels but they have extremely  thin soles, some 
missing and one spoke has gone. There is no shrouding and the  timber round the 
boxes has split, rust expansion.
they will never be much  good.
Main requirement, must be very cheap!
The bells are post WW1 flat  head, and if recovered may well the church that 
they would form the basis of a  very nice 6.

Ah - I would like to see these going again!
I have several around these sizes, the two closest are 57½" and 61½"  
diameter. £25 each to the Rosscarbery augmentation fund! The eye sizes are a  little 
bigger than you want, but I can cut some steel angle brackets which you  can 
coach bolt to the headstocks and bolt the wheels to these.
