Welcome to Workshop. Great to see you join in the discussions and get some prompt assistance from Brad. We are looking forward to seeing how your project progresses. Please feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have something to share.
I noticed you had posted in multiple places across the site so have consolidated your photos into this one discussion. Please avoid posting in multiple places as it makes it less likely you will get multiple responses and makes it harder for other community members to find what they are looking for.
Thanks again for joining us, and please let me know if you ever need help getting the most from the site.
I would be very surprised if truck hubs were made of cast iron.
I seem to remember the old cast iron stoves and if they received a hard knock they had a tendency to crack.
I'm sure you will work it out.
I'm trying to work out a pot belly of some kind in my shed, so I will be interested in knowing how you get on with your project.
Good luck bergs
