I've been asked a couple of times now how I do my wheels now so I thought I'd post a 'How To' using just a pillar drill and hand tools.

I mount the wheel using some 8mm studding, 2 8mm nuts, 2 metal washers, 2 steel washers, 2 knackered bearings and a std bearing spacer.





The studding is mounted in the chuck and the wheel mounted and tightened with the rubber washers gripping the bearing outers.



Next I mark out the width for the conical which I measured from one of the re-pours and mark with the calipers.




 The yellow plane/ file is a Stanley Surform and the other a heavy duty rasp file. The Surform does most of the work and then the other file just finishes and puts a gentle radius on.



I then work out the angle I need to be at and slowly work my way down to the line.



With a nice sharp Surform blade each wheel takes around 5 minutes. The Surform is the key to making it quick and easy, I've tried several other ways, grinder etc and this is by far the quickest.



I've done a couple of sets of these Pure Juices now and they come out really well.
Obviously this is all done a lot easier on a lathe but if like me you haven't got one, you can still do a nice job like this.

Thanks for the comments, love Paly's drill. [smile]

Here's a couple of pics of the finished wheels, and how they compare to the Comp11 Re-pours.





As you can see, they are not quite as wide and there is slightly more off set on them.

Nice.

I've done them with a belt sander as well.

Toss in some cheap bearings and angle the sander away from the spinning axis to remove material.


Be sure not to eat that thane dust...

look great, i remember back in the day when one of the locals turned up at our park with home made ones but the problem was the wheels werent wide enough in the first place so they ended up riding little skinny wheels that were half conical[bawl]
