First picture shows the back drive shaft passing over the differential and heading to the transfer case.
Both rear drive shafts go to the transfer case independently.
Second picture show the transfer case with the drive shaft to the trans and one to the front end.
I ran out of 1/4” oak dowel so will finish up the drive shafts monday.
Last pictures just showing the travel of the rear axles.
Couple a pictures of the wheels being made.
marked for the band saw and cut,
Then drilled 5/8 deep with the hole saw and will clear it out with a fastener bit just deep enough so the router can clear for the inside shaping.
Using the 1” store bought wheels for the centers the hole saw fits them just right but not wanting to drill all the way through to help keep every thing centered, so after the hole saw I clear out the hole with the biggest fastener bit I have.
By doing it this way everything stays center to the axles.
Then when I glue in the centers if their off a little bit I just drill from the back using the hole saw’s guide hole and everything is just right.
Setting the hole saw for the right depth.
Then off to the super duper sanding disk and wheel jig.
Then over to the table saw for some groovy work, I showed this last week so check it out a couple a pages back on the semi blog.
So here’s what they will look like, I had an extra one from the semi build so put it in here to show the difference in looks just by using a different router bit and spacing the tread differently.
