It seems I need to add some info to my Rim making jig as I took pictures but really never spelled it out step by step. so! First of all this is what we’re after. Now how do we get to this point.I like to use bought wheels for my rims as they are made of maple and can be shaped quite nicely, maybe that’s why the wheel makers use it, plus they already have a nice shape and at Hobby Lobby their pretty cheap for the 1” & 1 1/2” wheels. 1. We need a base, I...

I cut off the corner so the fence could get in closer. I added a stop block at the back of the table saw so i wouldn’t have to think about stopping ,just hit the stop and on we go. Th...

After seeing Bushmasters jig making it got me wanting to rethink my mag wheel making jig and this is what I came up with, and I must say it’s much faster and safer to boot. Using and indexer makes this job so much easier and really a no brainier from now on, just make up your mind how many spokes you want and jig it up.For even # holes at least. LOL First I made up some hole blanks, don’t cut them all the way through just enough to have a center hole and the out line for th...

My old wheel making jig was way way wore out so when we moved it hit the trash can. :-[ So time to make a new one with thoughts of being more accurate and safer to use.Want it to work with my hands farther from the blade and need to come up with a way to get better holes drilled for the dial indicator [if that the right word] So with that being said I needed to find a guide to drill 36 holes at just the right spacing. I started by using a 36 tooth 7 1/2” saw blade to force the ...
