« Part 109: 32 Chevy Part 110 of Toy Construction series Part 111: 32 Chevy radiator and rear fender »

I figured before I could do the fenders and just about anything else I better get the wheels in shape.
On the jig I used before I had a hard time clamping it down, my clamps didn’t have enough reach, then it hit me to use a longer 2×4 and I could clamp it at the edges. Most times simple is better.

Got a new to me handle for the drill press way better And Ebay for the win.

Wanted to give the rims a different look but they’re so simple to do didn’t want to go far.
I wanted to use a round over bit but the bearing were to big but since I drilled them out using a 3/8 bit the smaller router bearing works just right.

Can never get enough of your wheel designs. The tyre look great and that’s a cool adaptation of the pre-fab’d wheels for rims.

Dutchy, Haven’t you noticed you only see pictures of #4’s fingers… Maybe he’s scared of mirrors…

Yes, they are great rims… but he’ll never see their reflection…

This is too late #4 ... The images are forever imprinted in my brain… above the line that even alcohol cannot erase… but, you get an ”E” for Effort.

#4, may be tall, slim, good looking and rich… he may even be an Adonis…
However, I agree, and only envy his SS...
