Wood Wheel Repair
Posted by: The Mollusk ()

The black walnut in the fitch sprint wheel on my daily driver '63 has had a crack in it since I bought it 8 years ago or so. I put some plastic wood in it then and it held ok but its given up the ghost. The wood is in great shape and does not need to be replaced, but it's from where one of the rivets went through a weak spot in the wood. Looking for suggestions on glue/filler to repair this?

Use an epoxy putty to fill, the smooth w/ sandpaper to fine. Finish with mixing a brush paint to match the wood.
Done artfully, no one will know.
