fancy scooter wheel
by ToM_Korn, published
i found my old three wheeler some months ago on the attic of my grandpa. for sure it was dirty, the color came of and all wheels where damaged bad but at that moment i was sure - i will repair it for my little son (2.5 years old).
so i cleaned and sandpapered all parts and made new paint on it but i also designed and printed new wheels for the scooter.
one wheel consist of two printed parts each 120 mm in diameter and 15 mm in width.
glued together one complete wheel has a width of 30 mm and took me about 4.5h to print.
2pcs. 22x8x7 mm inline skate ball bearings
8mm rod and some nuts to lock them in place.
have fun with it.
first print them
glue them together but take care to add a spacer in the middle - ill add a 3d print version of it the next days. it should be 9mm inner diameter and 12 mm outer diameter (could be more up to 15mm)
if you're done you can glue the rubber on with super glue. i used some window joints and gaskets. i used the w 6148 of my supplier. maybe you can find something similar near by you.
here is the link to the catalogue http://www.nuschei.at/D/pdf/Nuschei_Gummiprofile.pdf
when you are done you can use a 8mm threaded rod to fix the wheel in position.
i used a 10 mm rod turned down to 8mm and made my own thread on it. if you do it my way you will need a space of 45 mm for 2 nuts, 2 flat washers and the wheel.
what ever you build with it -- keep me posted.
i have an other design i will post in the next month - stay tuned.
