When I had my upper wheel made I didn't put a radius on the edges because I saw an article by Dave Propst about adding to the width of of his upper wheel, well I finely got time to do it.[see attachments]
I didn't want to be stuck with 5 in. wheel all the time, and a five or six in wide wheel would weigh a ton. Like Ron Fournie said it would be like pushing a truck. so I think Dave Propsts idea will work for me on large panels.

I made them out of delrin ,each side is one inch wide makeing my wheel five inches wide.

    Cool Cool add on Jim, sorry I didn't notice the change when I was there today. How does this the shaping process?

    When you were over I was still tapping the holes in the delrin and the wheel was in the back room.

    I've been told it will help prevent the upper wheel from marking the panel.[ when wheeling big panels]
    large panels are my worst nightmare if this helps even a little it's worth the work.

    see ya

    Why would you widen the upper wheel and not also the lower wheel?

    Just a guess but I think it's to help stablize the panel when working alone. I think it will decrease chances of "lines" in the panel from a large panel wanting to hang heavy to one side when wheeling.

    Just a test -- please ignore.

    Okay George -- did you get an extra copy of this one?

    Just a quick question, does the transition between the different materials leave lines through the workpiece at all?

    I believe it would leave lines or tracks .Different materials have different pressure for compression of materials .Aluminum verses Steel

    Thanks for the reply. Thought it might, might not be a problem for someone experienced in wheeling, but I don't think I'd like to give myself the extra hassle just yet, having never even used a wheeling machine yet.
