  • 15in wheel  – link

Maybe I can make a wheel using wood, But I want to use very solid and realistic wheel. So I searched a lot, I had to consider the price and size. I found this wheel from Amazon and actually it is for the tractor! But it is great size and nice value.

And for the installation, I met Ben and discussed my installation plan. My installation should be strong and stable because there is a heavy wheel and people are going to using it strongly.

 

First of all, he recommended me to use these poles that I can borrowed from the school. these can make the big door panel to stand itself. But It is not enough to be stable, so I should have a plan for supporters or extra structure.

I also need to use the CNC machine but I did learn how to use it. So I have to use the router! It seemed very scary, but actually it was really fun!

First I checked the location of the wheel and a porthole.

And I made a porthole with a router and a circle jig.
