I have been asked to make a miniature cannon. Body frame I can figure out, but the spoke wheels have me scratching my head. I need some advice please.
A picture or drawing would be helpful to see the overall plan and dimensions of the body frame and 12" diameter wheels. Do you have a picture of what you've been asked to build? Does it have to roll on the wheels or can it just be fixed on the axle?I have been asked to make a miniature cannon. Body frame I can figure out, but the spoke wheels have me scratching my head.
I think your reply is appropriate and pertinent to the conversation Dave. After all he may want to make it as authentic as possible. I didn’t mean to discount your input, I’m sorry.The laminated wheels that Mike made are very nice. I think those would work well for you. Certainly better than wheels made of MDF. If you wanted to make more traditional wheels with felloes instead of laminating like Mike did, I can give you some ideas. The process would be very similar to what I used for the steering wheel I made for my sailboat.
