I need to make small metal railway wheels(no plastic/rubber) for my project(About 1cm in dia). Does anyone know where can I get them made in Mumbai?

Has anyone used custom made wheels(even plastic) in/outside Mumbai?

I don't know of any specific workshop, but my friend once got some lathe-work done for wheels at a random workshop in Mayapuri Indl. Area, Delhi. There are lots of these small workshops/factories in Indl. areas where they have lathes. They are usually quite happy to oblige.

Hi you probably wouldn't need CNC ,just for making wheels.
You could probably get into one of those auto refurbishing/spare lathe guys. To get the best results,make all wheels for 1 model in one setting with sufficiently long bar stock.
This will give you the required concentricity.
You could also try nylon,this makes the entire model lighter and more silent.

Tell me if you need any help.
