It glued up better than I thought and turned out perfect. Not a lot to show other then this short video.

Looks good Steve. Will you be balancing the big wheel on a shaft on two knife blades?

You make it look so easy!!

Thanks guys! No knives but Jim I think you drilled a 5/16” hole for the shaft so a 5/16” shaft with a couple of leather washers on each side and the big wheel will be good to go!!

We’re glad to hear it went well. Unfortunately, we can’t watch your video on this slow dial-up. ;-(

Steve, it looks great. I can’t wait for the action packed “finish”.
