« Part 278: fork lift building the forks Part 279 of Toy Construction series Part 280: fork lift wheels sanded and installed »

Made up some wheel blanks today and off to the wheel jig tread maker.

It makes it fast work when you can cut all the tires of the same size at one time.
So only had to load the jig twice and it’s done.

Also played with making a muffler and the back up warning light.

I marked the dowel and using the drill table fence was able to slide the vice along the fence for in line holes.
