Nice wheels, well done.

My boss in the shop builds wheels as long as he can remember. When you see him do it, it's amazing, he doesn't use the jig thing, but all out of hand. Truning on eye vision. When I give him a bended wheel he takes the wheel and while talking he is busy with it, and after 5 min, he gives it back to me.. totally straight.
Unbelievable. really.
He is the wheel fu*ki** master.
