Pretty fancy jig and very accurate by the looks of it .
The wheels look very nice but will look even better once they are painted .
Like they say, keep on trucking and I will be watching .

I have several types of jigs for different wheels. My earliest were several years ago for tractor wheels. I then moved to a modified Toys & Joys style wheel jig. Indexing has always been my downfall. Perhaps I will borrow one of your innovations and adjust my current tractor jig. [with your permission, of course]
I rarely use OFF THE SHELF wheels for anything but small toys I make for kids. I will however use them and modify them to suit my needs.I don’t feel it is cheating when I re-cut them, they are still wooden blocks, just round ones.
