Hello, hivers! Welcome to my page!
I have another episode of mini lathe amateur for you for this week. In this episode, I talk about, and show you the process of cutting a shallow angle bevel on the back of a miniature railroad wheel.
For these wheels, I'm following the I.B.L.S. standards for railroad wheels for 1 inch scale, or 1/12 scale, for 4-3/4 inch gauge track. The standards call for a bevel of not less than 10 degrees on both sides of the wheel flange. This bevel helps to keep the wheels from climbing over the rail on curves or through turnouts.
Here is the video. It's about 12 and a half minutes long.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my video!
I hope you find the video interesting!
