Victor, I'd very much like to hear how you attached the wood to the spokes
on your custom steering wheels.

thanks

That's Woody's wheel, he has that part all worked out. I hear it's going to be very Milleresque!

Sorry.....thought I'd read several times that you were making the
wheel for him, or atleast applying the wood.

In reply to # 23549 by carChips Brian, what finish were you thinking about for the steering wheel wood? It's so velvety smooth and soft I was thinking greasy palm!

Yes, I agree! the colour is so nice it would be a shame to stain it.
But, a mat finish would be nice.

Denny the wood that Vic is making will be glued to the stainless steel centre that Mike Thorpe made.
The outer ring has holes in it that small dowels will be pressed into prior to putting on the wood.
This will insure that the wood will not shift on the ring. The glue will keep the sandwich together.
Vic will router it round.
Looking to get the wheel today to machine and press in dowel pins.
No through pins or rivets will be showing that way.
Here are two versions of original Miller steering wheels.

How come such a variation in the height of the dash in those Millers?
Think you would have one heck of a time squeezing under the
tall one in a CK.

# 5 is a 1926 I believe while the other is the first Miller Race Car in 1920.
There will be room!
Game plan is to lose another 15 lbs by Race Day to compensate for my "Fake Springs"
An these are not "Fat Man" steering wheels, although the would be handy in CycleKarts???

I hope I have something good to show you when you get here Don!

Quick update.
Crank turned out as planned and I am very happy with it.
Frame rails are getting so close to being tardy to be welded together as a "Frame".
Need to weld up the front axle next.
I have also put some time into the Friction Shocks.....parts are cut out and plan is in place.

Frame rails are finally finished and moved back to the frame table for cross member installation.
Hope to have a frame to show off very very soon (tonight would be nice) as I have to get this program moving at a much faster pace.
Too much detail??????????
But I can't help myself.
