Very nice Jason, but I have to say on seeing it my first thought was of a beautiful mermaid! :NotWorthy:
John

I think you have been in lockdown for two long, next thing you will be telling us you have seen a unicorn ;) But it certainly make it easy to produce curvy shapes that would be difficult and time consuming on manual machines. The limit now is really what can be drawn, I would have liked a bit more "flair" where the spoke joins the hub but my cad had other ideas though a bit of body filler on the pattern should make up for any shortcomings.

At least I can cut at whatever speed I fancy here :LittleDevil:

Don't you have to machine a mirror image piece for the reverse side?

Yes, 6 of each type needed due to curve of spokes as mentioned in post #8

Jason.

I was really impressed watching the video and by the finish,  beautiful to look at but I'm a little daunted by the rim.

Let's hold on for the moment whilst I wait for some quotes to come back.

Cheers Graham.
