If I could find Shag Bark Hickory, I would use it. The 8X10X2 plank that I made these wheels from cost over $200.00 a long time ago.

What fun. I made a set of 50 spokes, the first was slow.
The fifth was much easier
The 25th was getting boring
The 50th was rally boring, even though it was easy.
I broke one in the press operation.. Good to have a spare.

Hal, you can include any number of pictures in one post. More than two won't all show up at the same time in Preview, but but different ones will show each time you preview. When you finally Post, all of them will show.

looks good! I have a few more to make, I agree by the 25th spoke I really would rather be doing something else. I started to think it would be faster and cheaper to get a second job at McDonalds and pay to have them made for me.

Hal, did you have anything backing the spokes when using the press?

Thanks
John

John, yes I did because it took a fair amount of pressure to flatten them. I used a thick press plate under the spokes. I acquired a drill press and hydraulic press large enough to accommodate the entire wheel.
