    Thanks PB that suggests the story I was told by an old chap living in Bishops Lydeard That they were made to do complex shapes in aero industries.
    He worked for the Co.in the design office,, I met him about 40 years ago so quite feasible ,very clever with automated machine design
    The one we had was this style so circles not really possible easily, upload_2020-10-16_21-12-58.jpeg It was a beast of a thing to move

    Final cad drawing and a hand drawn idea for a smallish wheel to keep price down.
    I was thinking of doing that one machined ready for someone to finish 85B0AB0E-2AC8-4F3A-AEEC-D827F7833BEB.jpeg EA585920-8220-4984-A5BF-65C6441C7787.jpeg

    Pretty sure pressbrake knows what he's making.
    Looks good to me.

    My fabricated one owes a fair bit to the Ranalah one I used at Mph and has a similar araingement .

    Pressbrake has the skills and the equipment to do it right.

    im not questioning his fabrication skills but i think his snap point is way too far back as i think it should be more forward for the deflection rate of the english wheel most designs are based on the english wheel base been forward of the inner lift

    EA585920-8220-4984-A5BF-65C6441C7787.jpeg

    I noted this with his pic but believe he should be more forward for pressure strength in the downward force on the english wheel

    i think it could snap or create a crack on the inner arch due to downward force

    How much pressure are we talking here, this can be settled pretty easy

    The furthest lever point its the back arm that's where the moment will be highest

    i can understand what your saying pressbrake but for my understanding with most designs and builds is

    everything is based upon triangle based strengths

    to me your break line is in line with the bottom but by coming forward a bit it would give it better strength

    the other reason ive noted is for it to be lighter yet stronger when you built your straight edges also based on triangles

    I appreciate your interest. The curve in the piece of paper has altered perspective. The section there is the same as a full size wheel but this is 15” throat
