Made the hubs to the etching press drive wheels yesterday.
I had more issues than I'd like with making solid round wheels, do I came up with this.
The actual spokes are 12", I just wanted to see what the assembled piece would look like. *For those of you that have deposits on presses that would still prefer the solid wheel, I'll make that happen.
These are 2.5" aluminum hubs, with 12" 3/8" spokes at a 5 degree outward angle, tipped with 1.5" phenolic knobs. Really nice hand fit.
I should be finishing the standing batch this week. So get ready for some sweet looking presses to take new homes!
And again, thank you so much!
