« Part 273: Log Skidder #113 2&3 Part 274 of Wooden Models series Part 275: Fork Lift »

Here’s my first try at some tractor wheels for the skidder.

First need to get some blanks ready.


Tip As you get started on the treads always mark the first tread that way you can be sure to line these marks up so the treads always line up even if your indexer isn’t perfect.

Still got a ton a clean up to do but you get the idea. #4 over and out.

Tiger#1 my router table is a Dewalt table saw turned into a router table.
The gears used to make the table saw blade go up and down now makes the router go up and down.
Here’s a shot of the wheels all done.

Tony#1 it’s quite a project [Router table], not for the faint of heart. LOL
Come to think about it, just about any table saw would work I would think but as I had already took it apart [Dewalt] to soup up my Shop Smith I had the parts on hand.
I've got a blog here some where about doing it?
