Man, I'm gonna hafta make a clone of meself and put him to work doin laundry, dishes, an @, so's I can have the time to apply all the cool trix I'm learning here :P ! Matt, Mr. O, thanx for bringing this up and thanx to you too, Yad', for the 'infomercial' :lol: I was planning on running solid disc type wheels, or Buggati type spokes on my BIGGIE 8, but looks like I can make some real live 'wire' wheels. Hope it works for you Matt. I'm thinking some kinda solid wire, not too thick tho' so it can wrap around the pegs and the hub spindle. Thank God we're workin in BIG scale!! Thanx again guys. Later, ######'n

Piano wire will work and comes in a lot of different diameters.
