Turning Old Wheels Into Dollars
I recently came across a man with a unique farm-based business. Stacey Sidwell, Sorento, Ill., turns old spoked wheels into hanging wall decorations.
  I sold Stacey four steel wheels for $30 apiece. A couple of the wheels were on an old manure spreader, which he took off my hands for the scrap value.
  Stacey works nights at the Winchester firearms plant in Alton, Ill., and spends his daylight hours on his farm-based business sidelines.
  He decorates the wood or steel wheels with flowers, barn siding, bird houses, and whatever else he can think of. They sell well at local shows and field days.
  Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Stacey Sidwell, 503 Sorento Ave., Sorento, Ill. 62086 (ph 217 272-3492).
