STA140QR ENGLISH WHEEL
STA140QR ENGLISH WHEEL
Stakesy's English Wheel for shaping steel and aluminium sheet metal for automotive, motorcycle and aviation work.
This is essentially the same model as the STA140 english wheel with an improved quick release system to allow fast material entry and exit without adjusting the pressure. There are many designs of quick release and this type was by far the most efficient for the cost increase.
Fabricated from 3" x 2" x 4mm steel box section for rigidity and fully gussetted to prevent flex, we have designed this machine to be both affordable and yet strong enough for even large 18 gauge steel panelwork.
It comes complete with 6 anvils (rads and contact blow details are given below), stand and quick release mechanism. The 7" x 2" upper wheel is machined from EN8 steel with a ground finish and the lower anvils are also from EN8 with a ground finish and measure 2" wide by 3" diameter. The throat depth is 560mm (22") from centre of anvils to the back of the frame.
All lower anvils are now machined with a "contact blow". This is a small flat on the lower anvil blended into the radius. It makes for much easier overlaying of passes and is the norm on higher end US made wheels. The with of the "blow" is radius dependant and the details can be seen on the chart below. The result is much easier wheeling and a better quality job - no downside.
There are many E-wheels advertised on ebay and its difficult to know what you are getting from a few photos. We are fabricators ourselves and only supply kit we would happily use on our racing car and motorcycle projects. Where we think our wheel surpasses others in the same price range are as follows:
Top Wheel is machined from billet and has minimal vertical and lateral runout of less than 0.15mm. We have seen ebay upper wheels at the car shows move up and down by about 1.5mm and side to side like an old cart wheel.
Our top wheel and anvils are ground finish. Some of the competition use a chrome finish which can chip rendering them scrap.
When you hold our lower anvil saddle it will rotate only about 2-5 degrees and can be dialled down even less by fettling the grub screw. Others we have seen will twist up to about 45 degrees left and right.
At the NEC Classic Car show in November 2011 we sold one of these wheels from our stand to Alan Floyd of Classic Car Panel repairs who is a team member of the Leeds University Bodywork Restoration Course at the NEC show each year. He has a great experience using many cast and fabricated wheels and uses a large cast iron Kendrick wheel in his business. Alan wanted a mobile wheel for transporting to customers premises and said it was the best he had tried from all the wheels in this price range.
Lastly we have a demo in Leicestershire so come and try it out. 01509 812171 or 07970 958161
