« Part 1: In the begining Part 2 of Wheels series no next part

Hello Boys and Girls, (clue No 1)

Well I have made some very good progress with my wheel work.
I received a parcel from a fellow LJ (clue No 2) ...it was a Small Circle Cutter!(clue no 3)
As I have been working at Smiths Pepsico all week I didnt get to have time to test it out until the weekend.

It came with some very detailed assembly instructions even I managed to understand and assemble without a hitch. I think I will call it my “wallflower Jig” (clue No 4 and final)

I have also been asked to make a Sungka or Mancala game board, so I had the circle cut outs from the Sungka board template I was going to use, so they became my test samples.

here they are as raw cutouts from the hole saw.

And the sanding results achieved.

The setup

Some improvements.

I originally had wing nuts fitted but when my hardware parcel arrive I changed them out.

A worthwhile upgrade I thought.

So now its out with my “Fat” wheels and sanding away I went, wow they sanded up perfectly.

Thats all I managed to achieve just now but stay around for my next installment as I am fired up! (must be the Beef Jerky!)

-- Regards Rob

Rob, this set up looks great and will do the job. I tried something similar on my large belt sander and the results were sudden and explosive. Way more excitement than I wanted in the shop. Things went flying. However, on a disk sander this should work well. Looks like you are in the wheel business for sure. Take it easy on that beef jerky. It can get you all riled up.

rc, I hear that Smith’s chips and jerky go well together… hope they gave you a few free bags.

What’s Sungka... Is that like Jenga with circles???... hate to be pulling those round little suckers out.

Thanks everybody.

Joe:- A drum sander now thats an Idea I could cut a few more “fat” ones and use them as the body.
LBD:- The employees get freebies and sometimes they throw a few bags to the peasants if I am around at the right time, However I always have access to the Failed CA/QC bins.

Nothing wrong with them apart from being undersize and have dropped through the gauge or have fallen off the conveyor.

These missing flavour ie salt or something similar

Box of chips

All off for stock feed!

Sungka same as Jenka no definately not

You’re probably right… It sounds like something you’d catch when you are a naughty boy!

Tony,
Talk to The Duck
It is Laser produced so I think by default its CNC Laser as opposed to CNC router?

- GR8HUNTER
GR8, Do you realise you could save a helluva lot of timber if you drilled the next 136 holes in the same spot!

PS.


Talk to The Duck

Materials without the hardware is well under $10 (Aust)... it’s the International postage that’s a killer.

However, if you have a friend with a CNC or laser, the SketchUp is available.
