Questions: I need to mount a large ships wheel (4 foot diameter, 60 lbs) to a concrete fireplace and this spindle looks ideal. What is the diameter of the shaft? The ship wheel bore is 1.500, +/- 0.010. I am a machinist so I can open wheel bore if necessary.

Questions: I got a spindle bushing from you and i was wandering how tight the axle is supposed to be. I installed the new bushing and I cant turn it with my bare hands, did I do something wrong? Or is it supposed to be tight like that?

Rotate the wheel and tighten the adjusting nut until the wheel binds while on jacks. Then back off nut about one-sith turn or more if necessary making sure that the wheel rotates freely without sidewise shake.
