Rear Wheels

Post  burrell1 on Sat 16 Jun 2012, 2:37 am

On Friday I collected both of the front wheels for my Foden and also had the chance to see further progress and to have a chat with Steve. The rear wheel castings have arrived and they are already starting to mill them. Due to the size of the wheels it has been decided to mill only half of the tyre area and then to turn the wheel around and to mill the other half. This can be seen in the photograph, where a number of wheels have only had the first half milled. These stacks of wheels are three wheels high so they are going to look very impressive once the tyres have been fitted.

yes your right Bill, doing them half and half, although the join will be covered by the tyre. the first operation is taking just over 40 minutes.

I've got some photos to post up this weekend (trying to get you at least one up-date per week now).
