Chandelier From Auto Wheel (Jan, 1933)

The logical successor to the Wagon Wheel Chandelier

Chandelier From Auto Wheel
A SERVICEABLE chandelier for the cabin or camp can be made from a discarded auto wheel, as shown in the photo below. Insert a length of electric light wire through the holes drilled in the rim of the wheel to receive the bolts which hold the tire rim on. Ordinary electric light sockets are then screwed to the rim and wired up in the usual way, spaced to suit your taste. A hole is punched through the hub cap and a socket inserted therefor the center light. As shown in the photo, seven bulbs are easily accommodated.

    They had rednecks in 1933 – Although they were more sophisticated then.
