no previous part Part 1 of Wheel loader T and J Cat 966 series Part 2: Lathe work »

My wheel loader of T and J is almost ready.

And now I have to start making the wheels. I don,t like the type T and J has drawn.
This is the drawn of T and J:

It looks like:

And this is the type I like:

So I made a ACAD drawing of this wheel type and with sprayglue i put it on a template:

And made a groove with a dremel in the template:

Also made blanks for the wheels:


Next time (when it,s there) I will do the lathe work.

After turning I have to do the mill work and hope that it will succeed (I,m not sure)

Nice work Dutchy. You are not taking the easy way out with that tire tread. Very nice work on the parts of the loader that can be seen in your photos too.

Thank you Mike for your kind words. I hope to start soon with the turning but like you there is also a lot of garden work to do. And at my holiday I hope to do some chip carving.
