Diamond State Machining is proud to announce that we have been contracted to design and machine custom sulky wheels that will be used in harness track racing. Wheels will be made out of solid 6061 T6 aluminum. You can see from the pics below, our progress on this project.  The blue is blue anodizing. 

The client also has contracted with us to produce the high performance wheel hubs.  The wheels are first cut out of 1/2" thick aluminum plate measuring 72" wide x 144" long.  Then, the wheels are machined on the inside diameter for a precise hub fit and on the outside diameter for a precise fit of the rim.  Next the wheels and rims are trued, drilled, counter bored, threaded and fastened. You can see from the images below different portions of the process. Stay tuned for updated images of completely finished wheels, including new anodized colors. If you are interested in producing your own design please contact us for a quote.  If you are interested in the design below let us know and we can put you in contact with our client for purchase.
