Hi All, Made enough progress in making spoked wheels to show something. Went through four distinct jigs prior to the one that works. The wheel pictured is sub-par as I used nylon coated, 7-strand stainless steel bead line for the spokes. CA doesn't stick to the nylon coating well and some of the spokes slipped after trimming. I resorted to using this because I kept melting the monofilament repeatedly in nearly finished wheels ruining what was otherwise a perfect specimen. I'm going back to using monofilament as it's easy to tighten by applying heat IF YOU ARE CAREFUL! The method uses a hand held jig and a self centering method for the hub (more on this in a latter post). It's not too difficult only somewhat tedius at first. The method allows any spoking pattern and allows equilateral and offset hub spoking arrangements. The major learning item was actually how to make a decent rim and attach it. I mount the wheel on a Dremel tool and true things up and shape the tire at low speed with sand paper. Oh, it's about 2 inches in diameter and it should scale well. -Gil P.S. Egads, the close up really shows the loose spokes!
