Brief Description:  Tune up the wheels of the HF English Wheel

Had to machine the anvils centered on the bearings. Runout was over .008 on most of the tools. After setting up the lathe to true up the diameters I also cut flats per John Glovers recommendations. All the wheels were full radius on the Harbor Freight tools.

#1 anvil
12" radius
1" track

#2 anvil
8" radius
1/2" track

#3 anvil
5 1/2" radius
3/8" track

#4 anvil
3 1/4" radius
1/4" track

#5 anvil
2 3/8" radius
full radius

The bluing and scribe lines show the width of the flat for the wheel. Hand grinding with a 3" disk to clean up the radius, then several passes with 4 grits of scotchbrite to get the tools/grinding marks off the wheel.

Finished with a two step polishing.
