1/16 th scale Micro Nitro Wire Lacing tool

Recommended Posts

Looking to see if anyone has a spare 16 th scale Wire lacing tool that Micro Nitro used to offer for the "bicycle tire" front rims that they used to sell.

Thanks,

Ep

Do you have any pictures of it?

No, I don't. Do you happen to have one? Or do you know of anyone who has one?

Pictures would allow it to possibly be recreated.

I have one buried somewhere in my hobby room. I'll take a good look around for it in the next few days. And no, I don't want to get rid of it.

Did you ever find the wire lacing tool?

No. I put it in a safe place, so safe, in fact, its hidden from me.

I'll keep looking.

A few years ago I was working with Ted's Modeling and I made this fixture for Micro Nitro's 1/25th wire wheels .  I still have all of the drawings and instructions for both 1/25th and 1/16th scale wheels .

Now THAT'S precision.  Great job on those Bob.  I have a 1/25th lacing tool that I bought from micronitro several years ago. Never used it.   Won't be of any help to Errol however. Sorry,  tim

Can you post the instructions?

The written instructions are lengthy and can be a bit confusing so I posted the photos to Fotki .  One picture is worth a thousand words right ?

Here's the link . Wire Wheels

Earlier this year I built some 1/8 scale 18" wires . Hub and rim made from aluminum , wires are .015 music wire. Decided on 36 spoke wheel and built a jig. I bent .050 length of the wire 90 degrees to hook the hub. A real challenge for sure.

Jeff.... those are some NIce wire wheels. They look great. I would Loce to try and lace some wheels some time. Would love to see what you are going to put these on.

Those look great, but is there an alternative to using music wire. Last time I used music wire for something, it started to rust and eventually disintegrated.

Found my wire lacing set up from MicroNitro. I'll get a picture of it and post it here. I was intending on writing and drawing up instructions for using it.
