More progress


I've been getting into the machining 'thing' and learning how to use the mini-lathe. After completing the trial tyre, I've moved into 'production’. I have machined the axles and wheel centres. The next step is to produce a batch of tyres.

Here are some axles - I've got another four of these suckers for the second kit.

The wheel centre, trial tyre, and axle 'combo'.

Here is the trial wheel (left) versus the original wheel (right).
