Another project , just what I need

Recommended Posts

I did some 1/8 scale work for a close friend and ended up with a TDR 392 . Decided to try an old 60S front wheel and tire . It's 18" with .015 music wire , which is a hair small . Will change to .020 . 

Thanks for looking in Jeff .

You're off to a great start. I'm dialed in for this build. Lovin' those front wheels.

The wheel looks right although I agree with you that the music wire is a touch small. Do you think the same technique would work with a 1/16 wheel which of course would be half the size?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Those are gorgeous Jeff. The build is going to be truly special that's obvious. I ESPECIALLY like the pic you provided of the jig you made so that you could do the wheels.............to machinists everywhere that is simplicity and beauty all rolled into one.  Good one!!   cheers, tim
