    Hello Pete,
    Yours has much prettier wheels than mine! All I had to do was spin up some brass and make four the same size.
    Here's a few more, but the tiny one I don't think I'll try again, it nearly became an obsession and I had many failed attempts. Stubborn sparkers won't give up!
    Best wishes,
    Guy.

    Thanks Raymond,
    Yes they can be a bit fiddly, do you have a lathe in Kiwiland? I find it very therapeutic, but can be frustrating.
    All best,
    Guy.
