wheel bolt holes

I have been working on the space saver wheels and have completed three and bolted them to the hubs and they run true. I will get the tyres back on the rims in the day or so. making the new rim centers has been a case of careful marking out and welding. Jigs help. I made a spinning table from a car wheel stub axil assembly with a piece of particle board bolted on with the wheel nuts then placed the welded wheel on this all held in a vice. Then I set about running the wheel true then put a pointer above the wheel to find the true center and marked out the holes with good accuracy. I will get photos up in the next day or so.
