I need to make some spoked wheels for a toy project so knocked this up to drill the holes in the centre boss. The dividing plate has numbers punched every other hole to make it easy to drill the right amount of holes, so I can drill as many as I want as long as it can be divided into 24 It now takes less than 5 minutes to cut the boss blank, mount it and drill 12 holes. Now I have to get and make some wheels and build a project from them.
The wood I used was not that good for the test but still very happy with the results.

That is a nice jig, how many of these do you need to make?? I wouldn’t go all the length of making a jig cut up all nice like that if it was a couple of wheels, but if you’re going into a small production line, they yeah, sure, why not :)

Not a great amount to be made but enough to make it worth the effort to make the jig
