does anybody have one they want to get rid of? friends were over last weekend and one of their kids got ahold of mine. it ended up being dropped and shattered like an old whiskey glass >:( of course they offered to buy me a new one, but nearly puked when i told them it was almost $200 to replace (nice blue comp cams 14").
i've had that wheel since the late '90's when i was deep into mustangs. it was kinda and old friend. ;) steve.
when I grow up, i wanna be an adult.

The ones put out by Crane are kind of pricey .On that though I just buy the mylar transfers from Mac Master Carr and put them on a piece of aluminum to use on chainsaws .I've made several and they work great .

yeah al, that may work fine. however i like to use what i like to use. i'm going to be pretty firm on kristian to get me a good replacement for the one his boy broke. the thing i liked about the comp cams one was you didn't need to use a wrench on the stub to turn the engine over (car/truck), you just put your hands on it and twisted it. i liked the openings for this reason. it isn't going to be just for chainsaws. and i need a good one that will take the abuse. plus, the indented numbers and incraments were nice when your hands got dirty. sort of like a grip on a handle :)

Well the larger they are of course the more accurate . However a big large wheel would be a gigantic pain in the behind to use on a chainsaw .

it could be on some :) depends on what your using to hold it on their.
after you get rid of the handle and pull start, theres lots of room, after you use a 3" long adapter ;D

I just use the 8" ones and print them off with the printer and glue them to various things like thin plywood, Lexan, or acrylic sheet. Have used poster board too.  The reason for so many is that I mostly use them to set the ignition timing on chainsaw engine derived model airplane engines using a Hall effect sensor and a Neodymium magnet in a hub where the flywheel used to be. The Hall Effect sensor is the trigger for the CD type ignition system. It is shielded and mostly use NGK BPMR7F or NGK CM6 plugs. I do have some engines that run plugs with a 1/4-28 thread. I've been doing this for years.

I tried to upload a degree wheel but 100K doesn't get much more than a thumbnail.

PM me your email and I can Email you .jpg images of several different styles of degree wheels. Or cut4fun can give you my email address.
