each i.e top and bottom or both when nailed up ?
Each top and bottom
piece is 5/16" thick
>When you cut the
wood for the teeth make sure the grain is running top to bottom for maximum
strength. Not side to side. What do you mean by this [ I know it is
important to get right but can't visualize it.
Think of a wooden
pencil. The grain runs the length of the pencil and gives it
strength. When you cut the teeth pieces you need to replicate that by
having the grain run from the bottom to top. See attached
frightening myself to death cutting wheels on my 10" bench saw , A little like
steves method but I start with squares and cut wheels ! bits flying every
I found a safer way
to cut wheels on my power miter saw. Clamp a piece of wood onto the bed of
the miter saw. The clamped piece will support the wheel while it is
being cut and should extend past the cut line (until the first cut that
is). Put a small nail or brad through the center of the wheel blank and
nail the blank the appropriate distance away from the cut line. Make your
first cut. rotate the wheel blank a little bit and cut. Keep doing
this and you'll have a perfect wheel in no time and hopefully with all your
rubber bungee type material in the UK , couple of more leads to follow before I
am begging someone to help me out !
If you can't find
the bungee cords let me know and I'll ship you some.
