A nice old wooden wagon wheel hub. Personally, I would consider this to be about the perfect amount of weathering if you're going for 'the look'. It is weatd, but not dryrotting. Sun-beaten, but still with some color. Doesn't have mud and dirt caked on(and in)to it. The bands are all absolutely tight. Now, I'm not at all a person that works on wagons, but it would not surprise me at all if this hub is still in good useable shape for mounting on a wagon. The ends look to be tight and solid, and the inside of the spindle sheathe is *not* all pitted out with rust. A real nice hub, in my opinion. Weight 22lb 8oz.

General Note: I get all my merchandise at estate sales and other "in person" auctions. I'm generally not much of an expert on any given thing that I sell, so feel free to ask questions, or for more photos, if you want to know more.


Items ship from zip code 68512 in the U.S. Shipping costs quoted are to the continental states only, anyw else will be more.

SHIPPING-"OTHER":bsp; If the shipping is 'Other' then it is Fedex. Fedex automatically insures all packages for $100, and includes a tracking number. If you win an item for more than $100, you must tell me if you want more insurance, at which point I will send you a new quote. If the auction lists insurance is "optional" for $1.65, but the shipping method is "other", you don't need to pay the $1.65. That is only for USPS shipping. It is to hard to remember to remove that on the USPS auctions, so I just leave it t

SHIPPING-USPS: If the shipping method is listed as USPS, then it does NOT automatically have either insurance OR a tracking number. Insurance is $1.65 per $50 of item value. Tracking numbers are 75 cents. If you need more than $50 insurance, either add the appropriate amount to your payment, or ask me to re-invoice you. I am NOT responsible for the time the post office takes to deliver the package.

SHIPPING-COMBINED: I always do my best to combine multiple wins to save on shipping. I make full use of USPS flat rate boxes wver possible, and will only charge you for one box if I can fit multiple wins in the same box. If you win more than one auction I will send you a new quote with new shipping. Or, you can send the combined amount, and I will refund the excess shipping to you (if you pay with paypal that is).

FOREIGN BIDDERS: For the customs paperwork hassle, Canadians are charged an extra $3. All other foreign buyers are charged an extra $5. I am happy to send you a quote during the auction if you want to know how much it will cost. I *DO NOT* under-declare items on the invoice. Do not ask.

SHIPPING - PACKING: I start packing items the next day after the auction ends. I pack as much as I can in a day, but ebay is NOT my job. It will usually take me two days to pack and ship up to 40 items. If you have won a large and/or bulky item, then I will save it till later, after I have sent the stuff that is easier to pack. This is usually not later than Friday. It depends on whether I have the right size box, and appropriate padding material. So if you've won a large item, please have patience. I take packaging seriously. I know how fragile cast iron is. I use newspaper for most items, and packign peanuts only for very light items. Heavy items will be packaged using solid styrofoam blocks, as well as small boxes stuffed with newspaper. It is very rare for the items I pack to be broken, as my feedback should attest. I do not notify the winner of when a package is shipped, unless they ask me to, because I just don't have time to notify everyone.

PAYMENT: I prefer paypal, but am happy to accept checks and money orders. BE AWARE however, that I hold checks AND money orders for 10 days (5 days for USPS money orders, because I'm familiar with them). I do this because my bank tells me that fraudulent money orders are on the rise. If you cannot handle this...
