Is there a pattern or template with measurements for a wheel press, to build one. I'm going to replace my spokes.

There's also one out there that uses a square wooden base. Don't know if one base is better than the other but the square is a lot easier to make.

I did mine real simple no special box just a chunk of heavy plywood Four pieces of 4x4 about 6 to 8 inches long a piece of all thread few nuts and washers and a large wrench. First one took about 2 hours the others less than 30 minutes a piece. Never had done them before so the first one was a learning experience

I stuck pretty close to the Regan plan. It was easy, but John's estimate for the cost was a bit low. I think I spent about $40 on mine.

Steve, if you were building wheels that day, you can take the heat better than I can!

Here's my press, built with the Regan plans:

I just want to add this.
Do not apply varnish or paint on the surfaces where the spokes touch each other. It will work as glue and will block the spokes as they touch. The spokes need to be clean wood at this surfaces. I apply furniture wax on this surfaces, this make the job easier. Line oil will work too
