Or to marry non aluminum parts;

Was thinking the cap off a can could be be cut out leaving a skirt/collar and use washers and bolt on like a rag joint. The axle of the wheel would be the cap. Bolted in a circular fashion like a ships doorway/hatch with rivets. Dunno if I am expressing the thought understandably.

Hey young man, you're the one who brought all this stuff up. Are you trying to contribute to the delinquency of an elder, sir! In some nursing homes that is a capital offense. At a certain age any offense is capital as it at least shows you're still alive... but I'm not that old and feeble, sir! And I have me own projects piled up involving more precious metals such as copper & brass. I leave the aluminum mining to you, sir...

And no, I don't understand about the cap. Why don't you make one and show me, eh? Heh heh heh...
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
