Thank you for all the kind comments :)     This next "episode" will have all you Real model engineers shaking your heads :rant:    However the system suited my equipment and ability.  I rescued the hub of the drive pulley and re-drilled the holes such that the new spokes were an interference fit. I then put a countersink in the spoke holes on the outside of the rim. Set up in the jig, the spokes were knocked home and the stick welder used to spot them to the rim. Back in the 3 jaw to lightly bore the hub concentric and then file flush the welds. A touch of JB will tidy up and not be seen under the paint. I am pleased that I used the cast iron piston ring as I have located a boiler and should be able to steam it before long. Current work is cylinder drains, which apart from tap ends are hidden below the cylinder inside the bed.     Terry

A little more done to the pulley.   joining plates for the two halves. A new slitting saw is required to split them, so I await the post.       Terry
