    I have just realised that I have made a big muck up of the wheels but I think that I can sort it out without too many problems.

    Who can spot the mistake

    Can't you just turn the wheel round? Or rather unstick and swap the axle braces.

    I have a jam chuck which I used for the inner rebate so I will put one in that and turn and sand the axle block and round spacer off then remake those and stick them on the correct side

    Anyone can make a mistake but not everyone can put it right. You’ll manage though.

    Thank you Bill it took me 1 hour to rectify the problem the part that I thought would take the longest only took me 10 minutes with the aid of the jam chuck I had from doing each half of the wheels
