I live in Canada and cannot find a Wodent Weel in the area and shipping is ridiculously expensive.
I'm having a hard time with my new gliders and so I don't want to traumatize them anymore with nail clipping or filing.
I'd like to try to rig the Nail-O-Matic into the wheel I bought from the store here, it's a 12 inch wheel with one open side. I'm fairly handy and can come up with a bunch of ideas of how to do it but I'm wondering if anybody else has tried this. What has worked and what hasn't? Any hints or cautions would be great.
Thanks,

We don't recommend using a Wodent wheel as gliders have gotten their tails de-gloved by the bar in the middle.

There are several good makers of safe wheels and they do ship. Here are some links for you to check out:

Stealth Wheel

Raptor Wheels

Fast Track

You can get nail trimming inserts for all of these wheels I believe.

I haven't heard of anyone using those in another type wheel. I agree with Feather on wheel suggestions. I personally have Fast Track wheels, I've at times entertained the idea of those nail trim tracks like you mentioned in one of their wheels, but haven't tried it.
