A lot of picture,s Making the rear wheel rims.
Standard you use an axle peg for mounting a wheel on the axle. On the picture below you can see this on the left side. This time I made a long dowel and with a press fit it is glued in the wheel. You can see this on the right side of the picture:
I made the rims out of two pieces. The first one is a disk. After sanding it to the right diameter I had to drill a lot of holes in it. Total I needed 16 rims and each rim disk has 21 holes and that makes 336 holes to drill. Below you see the disk on the drill press:
After drilling I removed the paper templates with thinner and this is the clutter:
And this are the clean discs:
Then I put toothpicks in the small holes. This toothpicks are about 1,7 mm and the holes I made are 1,4 mm in diameter. This toothpicks has to propose the bolts:
Then the sticks were cut:
And on the backside I did a small drop of CA glue:
After drying I sanded the toothsticks to the required lenght and also made axles of 6 mm dowels:
After mounting and sanding the axle to the required lenght I glued the discs into the wheels:
After making and mounting the discs it was time to make the rings. After glued a template on the wood I drilled 30 mm holes in it:
Then I sanded the holes:
Sanding the outside:
And after gluing it into the wheels here the final results:
