    Beautiful work buddy! Question....why is the motor mounted 90 degrees from the axis of rotation? Is there a right angle drive in the base? If so, why?

    Quite a show stopper!! The creative spoke forming was Terrific! A little confused about the drive and how the motor drives the twin roller chain and gears at right angles...conicals on the inside? Thanks for posting this beauty! ~PJ

    Another question: When you bent the spokes in the press did you simply rotate the cut plate by the same angle as the taper in the spokes?

    When fabrication is near indistinguishable from castings; perfect execution and combination of form following function. That in it's self is a rare occurrence. Detailing in the early photos interesting enough; the final product is astounding.
