For a long time after that my wheelwright business went on with no important change in technical matters although I had started some machinery; but there were great changes, for me personally, in the management of it; for in that I engaged a foreman-manager, William Goatcher, who after a few years became my partner.

The Wheelwrights Shop by George Sturt
Buy with confidence! London: Cambridge University Press, The word wheelwright remains a term usually used for someone who makes and repairs wheels for horse-drawn vehicles, although it is sometimes used to refer to someone who repairs wheels, wheel alignment, rims, drums , discs and wire spokes on modern vehicles such as automobiles , buses and trucks. Wheels for horse-drawn vehicles continue to be constructed and repaired for use by people who use such vehicles for farming , competitions and presentations of historical events such as reenactments and living history.
A modern wooden wheel generally consists of three main parts, the nave or hub at the centre of the wheel, the spokes radiating out from the centre and the felloes or rims around the outside. Generally the wheel would be bound by a steel or iron tyre depending on its historical period and purpose. The main timbers used in a traditional wooden wheel are Elm for the nave, Oak for the spokes and Ash for the felloes although this can vary in some areas depending on availability of timber, climate and style of production.
Sometimes Hickory is substituted for Oak and Ash as it is easier to bend for mass production and is quite springy for light wheels that require a bit of flexibility.
The Elm is used for its interwoven grain, this prevents the nave from splitting with the force of the spokes being driven in tight. The Oak is used because it doesn't bend, compress or flex and transfers any load pressures directly from the felloes to the nave. The Ash is used for its flexibility and springy nature, this acts as a form of suspension and protects against shock damage. In the second half of the 20th century wheelwright training faded away due to a lack of demand for new wooden wheels.
The Worshipful company of Wheelwrights in London UK maintains a flourishing government-backed apprenticeship scheme that began in Colonial Williamsburg USA has an ongoing apprenticeship program and has recently taken on new apprentices. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
