For making spoke wheels on the drill press I have made a little jig. There is a free to download drawing with some photos on my website.

Hello Dutchy,

I have been thinking of making “normal” wheels for some time and the spoked wheels post you see every now and again has also attracted my interest, mainly due to the “how did they do that” the jig is something which would aid in the build precision.

I am awaiting some hardware for LBD s kerfing Jig and will be getting into it soon.

How do you manage to think these jigs up? and considering the simplicity I find it amazing.
Also I saw you have used torx wood screws, never knew they existed. Good job

-- Regards Rob

This looks simple to make and easy to use, but very effective! On my list of jigs to build. Thanks for sharing.

Nothing more pleasing than to use a homemade jig that works well.

does an excellent job, with that short drill bit. I use what they call a panel bit for such things.

I use a solid TC (tungsten carbide) bit, simply because TC can’t deflect, this in contrary to HSS.

If your quill is a bit on the loose side like mine, it won’t make much difference what bit you use!

But I’m not going to let that daunt me. Imma try your cool jig anyway!
Thanks for posting this!
