Exclamation Wooden Wheel Making .wheelwrights.

Found this on Jay Bates' "Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #132 – June 4, 2016"

Fascinating.

When my time comes, I want to die like my grandfather did - quietly, and in his sleep - not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.

This is a Router Workshop wheel jig. They are no longer available new but you may be able to find them on Craigslist, Ebay or other sites used. Three lamination's of solid wood gives the wheels strength and when this jig is mounted on a backer board it lets you turn wheels out very quickly with your router.

An amazing amount of work to make one wheel, even with all the power tools and jigs. I wonder what it was like when it was all done by hand.

“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain

Thanks, much for posting. I understand the process but had never seen it done start to finish. I really liked some of the gauges and specialized tools that he utilized.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
