Sawmill carriage wheels are a very popular plastics application that has proven itself over decades and Redwood Plastics and Rubber’s “Tuffkast” proprietary plastic has performed so well in this application that a special grade, Tuffkast 020, was formulated specifically for this one application! The product is slightly softer, which helps it fit carriage rails better and is orange in color.
These are typically supplied as “blanks” where customers give an outer diameter and a thickness of their wheels and Redwood provides discs that are 1/4″ oversized on the dimensions (to permit machining down to size). Machined wheels can be provided complete as well but a fully dimensioned drawing will be needed.
