« Part 190: Main build just about there #5 1/2 Part 191 of Toy Construction series Part 192: Gatto Reading train build #7 1/2 »

Been working on the wheels the last two days and not to sad their about done.

The indexing jig came in quite handy for this operation, saved me a ton a figuring, just use every third hole and you got it just right.
I needed 12 holes and the indexer had 36 so it works out just right.
