no previous part Part 1 of Wooden toys wheel making series Part 2: Jig »

I started making wheels for my two cranes and aslo this new blog. Could have published it in the crane blog but preferred a new blog because you can use this wheels for many other toys.

There is a special wheel making video you can buy from Toys and Joys but I didn,t bought it and do it my own way. I hope this blog will help some others to make special toy wheels. Perhaps the video way is a better one but this blog is for free ;)

When I can improve my method please let me know, I am always willing to learn

Below the take-off pictures.

Next time more.

Thanks for watching.

Interesting as I use a very similar jig to do this and this type of jig has many other uses when circular objects like the sprockets for my twin screw vise .

Your welcome crowie.

Thanks Joe. You as woodturner maybe also like this

Thanks Klaus. About your jig; I like the way you made the fine adjustment with a screw. Maybe better than turning the exenter wheel like I do,
