Some photos of our members in action . . .

There has been great progress on the building of the buggy for the Raffle at the AGM this coming June - here are some photos taken of the seat just before it is sent up to Randy Kirschner's shop at Charlie Lake, BC for upholstery. Be sure to attend the AGM and the Parades this summer to see it for yourself!

October 31-November 1st 2014 - participants and instructors  at the 11th Annual Wheelwright Training at Tees, AB. They sure look like they had a great time!   Photos by Chris Jenson

The tyre was in the fire the entire time and expanded sufficient to go over the felloe. We succeeded and met the challenge of rebuilding a heavy wheel without cutting the tyre. Considrable measuring and discussion of all aspects of building a wheel resulted in a very happy and surprising client.

This was a front wheel of an old farm wagon that was built from the hub out with enough precision to apply the old steel without cutting it.

 

Cooling the iron quickly takes concentration.

 

The participants with several of the wheels constructed over the two days in the background.
