Making an hour wheel

This is Rob's class making an hour wheel. Its one of the things which makes our curriculum stand out and well liked by course applicants. A big emphasis is on micro mechanics and where possible, part making.

Cutting the spokes of the wheel

Its precise work ..

The result. Not a small feat by the way.
