Small wooden wheels made of ash, 28mm diameter, 18mm height, no finish. To achive equal spacing , I made small addition to parting chiesel, with piece of wood, plywood and insulating tape. The final shape was eyeballed with flat/straight chiesel. Finaly, all cut on bandsaw and flat sides sanded on disc sander.
Just to save you from counting, there are 93 of them….

Great job, you must have lost 3 of them. My count is 8 on a stick, and if you had 12 sticks you would have 96 wheels. Just saying.

Yes want to see the build if the models too

Neat way of doing it maj... at first glace I thought you’d gone feral and started making cheese…

I reckon those 3 might have gotten punctured…

Hi Ivan. Nice way to control the width when making so many. Do they need a hole in the center? What will they be used for?

cheers, Jim

No holes needed… Those are legs for cheramic bowls… They will be glued as legs

So you’ve uninvented the wheel and we’re back to using our legs again!

Thanks. I have learned something. Spacing on a lathe. And I know already how to make a hole, so no hole isn’t a big deal for me :)

Are there instructions on how to make a no hole? Do you use your now famous disc sander technique?
