make your own degree wheel

After getting frustrated using a comp cams degree wheel I made one in AutoCAD, you can print it and glue it to cardboard or some round piece of metal.

Very nice Fiscus, thats the best present I have gotten in a long while. I don't know why I never thought of doing it myself.

Thank you for sharing.

I absolutely refuse to pay anybody more than ten dollars for one. You can't find one for less then $30. I've always made my own. But never this pretty!!

I actually registered here just to say "Thanks" for the link to your degree wheel jpg. I went to get one at local parts store and they said they don't remember the last time they stocked them and I didn't want to order one from Comp, Jegs, Mancini etc. I hate waiting LOL. Again, thanks!!! I printed out the wheel and used spray adhesive to attach it to a piece of sheet metal. I then punched and drilled (well, hole sawed) a 3/4" hole to mount to my Mopar sb crank.

Good find! There is one here as well. I've added your link to the page.

Very nice - and at least I didn't have to pay for that pretty but useless color on some commercial brand.

Oh, and a comment, I enlarged it when I printed a copy to 122% on my Lexmark printer and it just fits a standard 8.5x11 piece of paper.
