I've had a 6 piece wood wheel inside for 5 years.
The wheel has come apart at 4 of the joints.
There finger joints that fit together tight.
What is the best glue to fix this wheel with?
Will this wheel be Safe to use or hang it on a wall?
Just make a new one!! It looks easy
Fred, clean all the old glue off first, use vinegar as it was probably hyde glue. Let everything dry good and glue up with your choice of epoxy or any quality glue. Strap type clamp works well, should be good to go for another 90 years. KGB
I'm not a woodworker, but I've fixed several. I scraped off what little glue I could see with my pocket knife and used whatever wood glue I had in the shop at the time, then put pressure to hold the pieces together. I've used wood clamps and small ratchet straps. After a day or so, I trim the glue residue with my knife, then sand and varnish.
Doesn't sound to me like you have an original Ford wheel. Most of the real early ones were one piece, and some of the later ones were two pieces.
Be sure to check the type of glue you use does not have a reaction with the type of finish you want to put on the wood wheel. A water base glue may desolve if you use a water base finish. A quality wood working glue should be used for strength. Some glues will not accept stains so be careful not to get glue all over. Check with a local cabinet maker for the best type of adhesive.
