Here is the first built up and painted wheel. A 36 spoke, Austin 7 type wheel.
This is made from 4 separate discs, to give maximum texture and "relief". I shall build the 48 and 60 spoke wheels today.
We have some sizing issues which will be corrected by the etchers immediately. On such a fine wheel, it is all too easy to get tolerances to the point where close means interference! The spokes are VERY fragile to give a fine look, but are proving just a little too fragile, so I will specify a slightly increased line weight to the spoke a/w. This should all get done within the next week.
Hi, all three RS skinny 19" wheels are now done and I have built them all here.
Left to right:- 36 spoke, 48 spoke and 60 spoke. Colin is doing suitable tyres for them too. We have some slight sizing issues to go through with the etchers to ease building and then they'll be ready to go.
