I have a lot of Norton Clay grinding wheels. They range between 4 to 6 inches in diameter. Lets deduce they are not usable as intended, what other ways could they be used besides lining the inside of my garbage can?

I wonder how thick and heavy the wheels are. Could they be hung up as a mobile/wind chime? Decorated to serve as paper weights? Do you have enough to use as markers or borders in the garden?
Stacked around a wood pole they could make the base of a small table. Maybe place on the bottom of large planters instead of stones for drainage.
In any event, before throwing them out try advertising on Craig's list or the like - people (like me!) sometimes find a use for the weirdest things.

It says 5/8 inch thick on each wheel. But they are used, so its slightly less than that.  I was thinking that they would make great row markers or borders as well. I did not think of them using them as a a replacement for stones in the bottom of pots....  Ty

Hopefully, there will be more great ideas.   Smiley
