Thanks for the pictures Shedbuddie?

Where did you buy that adjustable hole cutter? In the Netherlands I see only fixed diameters of hole-cutters.

Thanks for the wonderful how-to. It left me speechless when I first saw it. This is so clear and understandable. Are you a professional instructor? And thanks for the great photos. This is one of the best how-to's I have seen on making spoke wheels...well, actually the best I have seen.

Peter I've no idea where hole cutter came from I've had it for some time maybe a car boot sale. This one will only cut 3/4" thick timber cutting from both side.

John thank you for your kind comments, I'm no professional instructor maybe it because I enjoy what I do 'build models' like a lot of model/toy builders on your site.

A picture is worth a thousand words

it is often easier to show something in a picture than to describe it with words

Thanks for your answer, Shedbuddie.

I forgot to ask you the diameter of the centre-drill.

Do I understnd it correctly, when asking: "When you use this cutter to make ´normal´wheels,  do you then use the centredrill as axlehole?`

The centre-drill is about 3/16" as I use 1/4"/6mm and 3/8"/9mm hole for axles this drill is to small so have to drill out to suit. these wheels use 9mm axles

If you want to make a jig for drilling holes for spokes like in my photo try this site

What a great way to make spoked wheels. I have already made sketch drawings of your drilling jig.   That is the best demonstration that I have see on wheel making, well done.

wombat,

I found that also, it is n the Netherlands of all places (where I live) but you must be member of the Chamber of Commerce (that is, then you have a registration-number. They won´t sell to you, when you don´t have such a number. Am working on it.
