I this video I share how I made a holding jig to paint my wheels. Check it out. Made from ordinary printer paper. You can re-use or make several for multiple wheels. Repeat for adding finishes. Turn sound up for music.

great idea, I thought I would let you know I ho I paint my wheels.
I take a Paper clip and make it into a hook, place the hook in the axel hole then dip the
wheel in the paint and clamp a 1/8 inch dowel to the table and hang the paper clip to the dowel
and let them dry. Paint or whatever.

I usually place them on a dowel or a nail punch and keep adding them as I paint them. I set the ends of the dowel on 2 Dixie cups to dry.

you can buy kabob skews in packages of about 100 for a couple of bucks. they are 1/8 dowels and they are a foot long a lot cheaper then buying dowels

Very clever! Thanks for providing the video. We all appreciate it. This is quite an improvement over using wood dowels.
