I made one,and if you were closer ,I'd loan it to you. I use mine as a base in my 20 ton press and insert hub once spokes are in.It works good that way.

Is it really necessary to be so elaborate? Wouldn't an appropriately sized square work just as well and be much simpler to make plus straight cut longer pieces might be reused easier. Let's be honest, for most this tool is a one time/car use then it's a wall hanger.

One time use? Not really. I use mine when mounting tires on my Model A wheels. It is just right to hold the wheel with the hub cap facing down without the protruding hub hitting on the base. The carpeted edge of the base protects the new paint on the wheels from scratches. Probably work on lots of other wheels 18" or larger

I used a piece of scrap 3/4 inch flooring, a couple short scraps 2X4, and a scrap piece of heavy threaded rod that had been laying around for a decade. Put it together in about ten minutes. Ugly, but works fine. And it is sitting in the mini barn waiting till I need it again.

i watched the youtube video and noticed only one side of the hub is used when positioning
and tightening down the spokes. would it
not be proper to to use both sides of the
hub to seat the spoke ends?

Why?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Thomas Mullin on Monday, October 31, 2016 - 11:28 pm:

The hub has a flange to hold the spokes and the holes to align the spokes. The plate that covers the spokes on the other side is clamped to the spokes by the six bolts. If it were there, it would be on the underside, where Steve is continually moving the nut down out of the way.

ok, thanks, i understand now.
NEXT QUESTION: how does one drill the spokes for the six bolts?
hand drill or drill press?

thanks for being patient with me. i am new to the "T" world.
