Default For Sale now: Attack Wheel and RAOBF Wheel for Sale

With the blessings of the High Admirality i'm selling an almost complete Attack Wheel with acrylic aid. EDIT: Now also with an RaobF

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/wellpla...platform-mcnav












Materials used: Maple Veneer 3mm, Acrylic Clear Glass engraved with a VII blueprint, 0.3mm Cutout to read out readings on the acrylic aid.

I might add a cheaper version without the Acrylic Aid depending on the feedback, i might add a video on how to operate it, but it works like a classic Attackdisk.
I use it currently in Wolfpack to calculate AoB and converting relatives / absolutes.

Best of luck to you in your Etsy business!!!

The good news is that you probably won't have a lot of competition.

Default tool

I found my duplicate photo copies of the three disks for the attack wheel.... I think what I did to make the first one ... a long time ago...was take the images to a print shop and have them photo copy of heavy white stock... then I cut the three circles to fit:<) not as pretty as your item but it also will work:<) Also/.... forgot how to use it:<)

Nice that just made my day! If you have any feedback or criticism, even if it's just details let me know!

Default aAttack Wheel

Gents:

I received the disc and it is great work. I did modify it for my preferences. I created back plates which allow me to pick up the disk without the parts coming apart. I used hard foam board and thin very slick paper sheet. I mounted the second wheel on a foam board cut out underlying the outer wheel.... I cut a foam board mount for the outer wheel... glued to the lower board.... I placed a #10 brass bolt... through the center replacing the provided pin ... used a washer on top and at the bottom with a nut...

Now the center disk and middle disk are held in place. The outer wheel is glued in place......... the center and middle disk rotate easily.

I am lookng for my other templates ... in color... I had them.. I want to rebuild with hard paper ...
