Wheel Building with basic power tools

laying out and cutting the bracing

The braces can be as plain or fancy as you want them. The depth of the braces from the rim to the hub is half of the radius, which in this case is 2 1/2 inches. Just one rule though: When you lay out the braces, leave at least an inch on the inside. You will need this for clamping later!
