It is a time ago I started making the wheels for my T and J wheelloader. A long time I didn,t have time to work on it. But last week I restarted.
First I drilled a hole in the wheel with a 50 mm (2”) bore and than turned the wheels as you can see on below picture:
Now I could turn the wheel 180 degrees and do the other side:
Turning work was done and now I had to do some testings for the groves. I made four wheels from oak and one from beech for the testing work. First I made a jig as you can see below:
For giding I made a grove in a leading blanc:
I tried to make some groves in the beech wheel and the results where very disapointing:
For so far disapointing. But next week I hope to send you more blogs about it and hope it will be going better.
Thank you for reading. Al coments are welcome!
