« Part 119: Playing with a Bob Cat Part 120 of Toy Construction series Part 121: Playing with a Bob Cat More on the wheels »

Getting cold in the shop in the 55°at the high today which is ok for working but the super glue doesn’t like it been warming the wood up with a heat gun to get it to work faster.
Played with making wheels today, didn’t know what angle to make the grooves so went with 70° hope it’s right but it is what it is now. lol

This is just what I got cut out have a couple different ways to change it up, we’ll see.

As long as you don’t confuse the temperature and the angle °s, all should turn out OK.

Sorry #4, but I have already done my good deed for the day this morning…

I put superglue on my granny’s dentures so they wont fall into her breakfast porridge.

Ducky I bought two of them quick lock knobs for my jigs and will be using them a lot but on this jig the first time I really could have used them they are so big I didn’t get to use them.
If you look at the first picture the wheels are so small I really had to cut high to get the groove and the blade would have cut my new knobs so used my smaller ones and it still cut them.
Thinking of making some small wooden vises and these quick knobs will really make them work great.

Downsizing is something I never considered #4. One of my biggest problems was to make the indexing wheel “not so small” so that the max 36 (my current limit) indices would fit. I decided on a minimum size of 2.5” dia. to handle minimum 2 3/4” wheel sizes. Consequently I wasn’t faced with the size issue.

Nevertheless, I’m sure you’ll find them of great use elsewhere in the workshop.

Also, knurled push button nuts are another alternative (though not cheap… however, as I get older… nor is my precious time left on this earth [cheap]).
