Well done Dutchy. Here is a hint to make cutting your rims etc, easier. First drill a small hole in the center to accommodate the 8 mm dowel then make a jig to mount on your scroll saw with an 8mm dowel as the center. If you cut the outside of the rim first you can use this jig mounted in front of your disc sander to sand the rim to fit the tyre. Cut the inside of the rim last using the same jig. It make cutting accurate circles quick and easy.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys.

Peter: Thanks for the hint. When time is there I will make such a jig. As htl always says: “There’s a hundred ways to do anything, a lot depends on the tools at hand” I know that the way I do it isn’t the best way, it is a way.
