    English Wheel

    Hi Folks

    I am new to this community and wanted to show the result of some of the work I did in my cellar workshop.
    The body of my english wheel is made of 5mm sheet metal so it is quite a lightweight (abt. 150kg) compared to the dimensions.
    Throat is 33" deep, total height is 66". The C-Shaped body is 150mm wide and up to 300mm deep. You can easily roll 2mm mild steel sheet metal in it without noticing any movement of the machine.
    I am currently doing a 3D design of it by using FREECAD (it was made without any drawings). Once I am finished I could provide STEP-Files if anyone is interested.

    Comments welcome

    Greetings from Germany

    Very neat professional build.
    I for one, as I think many others, would welcome plans/drawings and believe they would be as good as your build.

    I'd like to see it being used. Nice short video would do.

    All one needs to do is get a cardboard box and marker and start a drawing, the fabrication is all elementary.
    I have one question and that is the placement of the hand wheel as low as it is. Is it that way to be able to work with foot? I know english wheels require both hands to work the metal, I can only imagine.
    Beautiful job and be proud and enjoy using it.
