That can be done Stan. I will give it some thought. While I have you here and you others to, what do you think of using a 5 inch diameter. 3 legged spider handle to raise and lower the wheel spindle assembly??

I'm not exactly following where that would go, Bill. Are you saying, instead of the brass knob?

To replace this white knob. That rod raises and lowers the wheel head assembly. Utilizing a spider will speed it up.

This one is too big but it is a start on the concept. It's made from scrap. The finished wheel will be Brass and the legs will be topped with Brass Balls.

Bill that doesn't work for me, and I have been watching this project faithfully. I think it should be like a wheel with three spokes and a circular periphery.

I really appreciate that you came forward with that David. I was hoping someone would see that. It was a good idea but just doesn't fit the rest of the work. I had to see it to find out. I am going back to the drawing board on this on. Maybe a wheel with a fold down handle. I will get it right.

Something like a hand wheel on a lathe with a folding handle....that would be sweet!

I found one at 3 inches and can have it plated. Gotta be Brass. :lmao::lmao: Might as well just turn one. Need to get a blank.

Bill,

Looking good! I agree that the spider just doesn't fit the design. I think the general shape of a collet closer handwheel, turned out of some brass, would look nice. Maybe something similar to this?

Getting closer. Someone asked in a thread the other day if he really needed a Rotary Table. Hell yes you need one. I don't buy handles. This handle is made from two separate pieces. The larger one was heated to 400 degrees the smaller on was put in the freezer. There is .008 difference between the male and female. Once they cooled there is no way to get them apart. Old school is alive and well in my shop.

Or these two holes 180 degrees apart. You need either the Rotary Table od Dividing Head.

303 Stainless shaft has arrived. Only machining needed here is a 3/8-16 tapped hole in one end and both ends squared. Pivot block material should be here any day now. It's coming UPS.

Steve gets the thanks for the handle Brian. I wasn't quite sure till I saw the one he posted. I am going to make a speed wrench that fits over the two posts to help move up and down when needed.

There are times when you will need to move the wheelhead up or down in a timely manner. The smaller handle will not accommodate this so a wrench was made.
