    Default Tractor Tire


    1 Not allowed!
    Been working on this project for a while, finally got a piece that resembles a tractor tire. My first rotary project. This just came off the CW, no clean up, no finish yet. Three carves to get here - 1st on rotary (in special wheel fixture), and two sided carve in another wheel fixture. Approx one hour and 15 minutes total carve time. Just having fun with my CW now!

    That looks very good. Are you planning on a complete tractor for the wheels?

    Am working on a tractor to go with. Hopefully by summer. Been watching bergeruds latest fixture for two sided carving - great idea/project - will tackle later this year.

    Floyd, and a great thanks to you sir, for your patience in helping me solve the mechanical issues. Still having a problem getting the carves to center properly.
