A chassid of the Rebbe Maharash supported himself by manufacturing wheels for wagons.

Once, the chassid prepared wagon wheels for the Rebbe’s carriage as a gift. He fashioned them with a deep love in his heart and with the fear that they wouldn’t be beautiful enough for the Rebbe.

When they were ready, he set out for Lubavitch with the wheels. There he presented the Rebbe with his gift and said: “Rebbe, I am giving you Ofanim1 (wheels). The Rebbe should give me Chayos HaKodesh*, i.e., inspiration in holy matters.”
