In making my lift for the router I need a wheel that turns a small Lab scissor lift.   How would I manufacture a wheel say like the Delta one pictured or something with some holes in it?   Tools available are a lathe, bandsaw okay just about any tool but the skillset may be lacking with the lathe.

disk w/ a suicide knob...

any automotive store will have the knob...

skip the wheel and go w/ a hand crank..

flat bar connected to the lift's screw and the suicide knob on the other end..

That is what I am thinking.  Already made the wheel as shown out of some plywood with the circle cutting jig on the BS.  Recessed the back to accept the 5 stared knob.  This was proof of concept, I used plywood.

Made that kind before.  Only issue here is the lab lift has reverse threaded metric bolt, of which I have none in supply or sourced.  So I am stuck with making a wheel I can adapt to the 5 star knob it has.  Was thinking more like a wagon wheel look.

I have seen this done but was sure the guy made it on the lathe.  Just was not sure how he did the holes.

You can cut some really nice circles on your bandsaw with the aid of a circle cutting jig. This is the jig that I made for my bandsaw. After you make your wheel you could make some holes with a Forstner bit to make it look nice or use a scroll saw if you have one.

Oddly when I made mine her video helped a lot in my own design. 

 

Thanks for the suggestions I have the blank glued and squared up.  Probably get on it in next couple of days.

That looks good very good and better looking than mine. You will have circles everywhere.  LOL

Crank wheel now turned.  Have to get the suicide handle turned next.  For anyone interested a 7mm pen blank brass insert can be used to turn a handle of smaller size and gives you a nice brass surface inside to wear instead of wood against a steel 1/4 bolt.

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
