A shout out to the Company. I initially I forgot that I had ordered both sets and when the 2nd set arrived I discussed it with Jack and returned the same without opening it. On receipt he kindly pointed put the error of my thinking and agreed to return the materials at his charge.

That was nice of him to do that... Not very many Companies would do that!

Very good... I'm sure you will LIKE these jigs!

I look forward to seeing your handywork using them!

Thank you!

DesertRatTom By cutting a groove and keeping the spokes flat on the ends, you don't have assembly problems. You would put the spokes into the hub first, then fit the outside, segment by segment, over the ends of the spokes. By keeping the ends flat, you get a large glue surface. You would need a jig to keep the hub centered and the spokes all rediating from dead center on the hub. I would take a good home-made jig to do that. No need for a CNC. If you want round spokes, keep the ends square and use a quarter round bit to roung them using stops to keep the ends flat. If you want the groove filled in, cut a strip of wood to fit and drop in segments. Will look solid. Cutting individual mortises for each spoke requires such an exacting and time consuming effort that it is prohibitive.

The Spokes, if round dowels being used, would have to be inserted into the Hub and each Rim segment BEFORE the outside rim segments are glued together... A dry fit would be mandatory to be sure the Rim would go together OK... The spokes wouldn't even have to be glued (I think).


He probably has it all figured out!
