"How To.............." Member Paul Woods has suggested a ‘How To……….’ forum. And here it is! This forum is for all you great model makers to share with the rest of us, you particular or unique way of doing things! How do you make elliptical springs, eyebolts, and wheels etc? Are you good at silver soldering, scale upholstery work or making miniature barrels? I would like to see some of these methods explained in detail, and hope that this will then lead to others contributing to the same topic. I do believe that no matter how adept we are at doing something, there maybe an easer, quicker, cheaper way of doing it! Please share your thoughts and methods here. ~~ jraah ~~

Unless the wheel is small, the spokes are short and thick so they can not bend I would not trust any wheel with vertical standing spokes without a dish.
A rolling vehicle on a road or in a field will also shake from the right to the left,
the axle with the naves would shake from the right to the left.
The tyres due to the friction with the road will not move sideways. So without a dish the forces will push the spokes to the other side of the tyres.
Due to the jerking from left to right the pens of the spokes get loose in the naves and the felloes, or they just break.
In the shortest time such wheels will fall apart.

I agree- - the methods there are so wrong for reality...

but then using the logic and simplicity in that video, I suppose with a pair of pliers, I could call myself a dentist...

and with a stethoscope and a packet of bandaids, I could perhaps call myself a doctor...

I watched an old rim-bound wheel at a show turn inside-out and fall apart today. Thank heavens the horse just stopped when the axle hit the ground.
The owner sadly had no idea his wheels were in such a poor state.
The rest of us were lucky we were there to stop a calamity from happening.

It IS potentially a life-threatening situation when something goes wrong.
Cutting corners on established practices should only be done by those who are fully aware of the hidden dangers.
This video is fraught with problems, in my opinion.

Why not just build a proper wheel to the inside diameter of the rim and attach the rim to the wheel using the spoke holes for screws or nails?

with great respect, Bill... you might like to ride in such a vehicle-but I value my life too much!
