Wheel for building Brio/Thomas compatible wooden trains (and probably other small vehicles, as well).

Follow these instructions for how to build axels and assemble the wheels themselves.

The SCAD file (original at https://github.com/ex-nerd/3d) contains measurements from all of the popular wooden train brands, and will likely improve as I have more time (and get access to a printer).

Print both parts and glue them together onto a 3/32" brass axle, using a furniture tack with a 1/2" head. See link in description for more instructions.

Just an FYI that you may want to check out the #2 version of this model. It's a better design and I'll probably eventually remove this one.
