Wheels for a Lister engine trolly
« on: October 01, 2014, 03:07:02 PM »
Hi
Lads
Made a start on some wheels
The rim is part of a discarded Oxy bottle
























This will be the inside

A bit of "decoration" will be given to the outside spokes

Hi there, John,

Those slices of oxygen cylinder look very neat.  Did you clean up the cut edges or do you have some super-precise cutting machine? 
Best regards,

Pete W.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you haven't seen the latest design change-note!

Mick cut them for me on his big band saw
Cleaned up with a angle grinder
The cut finish was very good  :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

 Looking nice John , they should look a good match for the engine once done. That big bandsaw is just the job for such tasks  :thumbup: glad I could help out.

 Cheers Mick
