First wheels

This assignment I choose some acrylic I had to made the 4 wheels asked.

The size wanted for each wheel was 1″, so to have similar wheels we use this measure in the band saw before cutting (see photo)photo 2 To make it nicer the wheels, I decide to put LED lights into the wheels, for that we drill a whole in each wheel using the drill press and then tested the LED with 3V of power. And to join the wheels I uses a wood dowel.

Finally to give power to the LED, I used the small 1.5V batteries and put them together to get the 3V need it for a descent shine. A hole was drilled in the dowel to cross one cable of the LED through there and solder to the end of the battery. P1010842

Finally we light the wheels.
