« Part 26: Handrail Part 27 of The dump truck series Part 28: Rims »

For this dump truck I made the same tyres as I have made for the hydraulic crane . But this time the workorder is different.

Tanks Joe.

In the USA it is spelled with a I, and in england it is spelled with a Y. And I have (very long ago) learned english at school ;). I appreciate your comment. I wish more people did. I can learn from it and try to improve my english. So keep on doing this!

Just yanking your chain there Jan. I’ve seen where you have spelled it both ways on some of your posts. And dont worry about it. Your tag line is excellent, because your English is FAR AND AWAY better than any hope I ever have of learning Dutch !

Dutchy I just love the look of these wheels and these are on the list, so glad you were able to start posting your how to.
I too started my wheels and got as far as sanding them to size then ran out of energy.
But really this was as far as I wanted to go any way till you posted your tire blog cause you all ways have great ideas and wanted to see what changes you were making from the great tires on the hydraulic crane. />I was thinking of ganging the tires up and cutting them on the table saw with a jig, but your band saw tip looks like a winner.
Dutchy how thick did you make the three tire parts, and how wide will the tire turn out to be?

Great jig for rounding the tires much safer tire rounder than free hand.
Great blog and thanks for the help!!!

Jan It’s funny cause I’m making the tires the same way you are with three parts.
I don’t have that sander you have so thought it would work out better for me to split the parts first just like you did here.
From what I can see of the plans are you making the out sides 3/8” and the middle 1/4”?

Thanks you all for your comments. I like ideas! I like suggestions! And even talking about spelling I appreciate! It is always hard to me to tell you in english what and why. I’m aware of making language mistakes, but I like the LJ community and that’s why I keep on going with my contributions. When you already didn’t know that is why I use all these pictures and Google translate.

Bruce the wheels are 70mm and the rims are 40mm in diameter and the wheels are 18mm thick. The holes are 8mm.

Klaus after the tires are done I fill the backside with a 5mm beech dowel with I color with a marker. The tires are ebonized and after treated with a transparent spray lacquer the dowels for me are hard to see. And when you don’t know about it you don,t see it. The rims are covering the front side holes.

Schuldig je eer van plagiaat (plagiarism to you foreigners).

Dutchy I hope you don’t mind but I WILL use your design and if you object I will put them under my trucks (out of sight).
