Hey Don, been wondering the same thing, No matter how much I look at my spokes they aren’t in any better condition than they were before. Called Calimers at www.calimerswheelshop.com last week. They wanted $250.00 per wheel plus shipping. They should do a good job but more than I want to spend. Of course the fun of this is doing it yourself. I have ordered some hickory from Ellis planning mill On 26th and wall in Ogden about $2.00 per spoke. I am going to turn what I can on my lath then I have a friend that is making a jig and mill the center portion of the spoke, the taper and the other surfaces. What I ordered is 1 ½ x 2 inches by 12 feet that I will cut to about.12inch length giving me plenty to work with. From what I have read hickory is the only wood to use, I still have questions and things to figure out so any help or suggestions would be helpful. Here a couple of sites with some good info
If I get this all together I will let you know and you are welcome to stop by and see how they turned out or if you get one finished would like to come over and see you handiwork.
