Question by rebeccad_14: How do you build a measuring wheel?
I’m building a mini measuring wheel and i’m concerned about how I will mark the wheel’s turn. For example, I thought of making a clicking sound, but how?
I have to hand make this

Best answer:

Answer by KeD
I would buy a cheap pizza cutter for a couple of bucks, then just mark the edge like a ruler with a Sharpie. A single wheel’s turn can be marked with a longer line.

    My Buddy Broke My Powerlock II so….I bought this one!, February 14, 2001
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Stanley 33-116 16-Foot PowerLock Tape Rule (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I’m rebuilding my 100 year old house and have used my old PowerLock II for 15 years of hard work. Well, when you have friends using your tools, anything can happen and it did. My PowerLock II jammed up and broke at the end. So, off to the store I went looking for a new one. They didn’t have it so I picked up this model. The weight is lighter than the PowerLock II due to the new design. I don’t mind that though but it took some getting used to. An overall great 16′ tape measurer. I hope to get many years out of this tool and will buy the next model up just in case my buddy stops over to give me a hand again. I recommend this tape to anyone that like’s 16′ measurer as I do. A very nice item to own and snap on to your belt! Very comfortable and not heavy at all.

    A simple click sound can be produced by a pin protruding from the wheel one side. It might be near the rim, or closer to the axle.
    It just has to strike and then flick past a flat spring or similar.
    You would need to start your measuring when the pin has just released the spring, and check the position of the pin when you have reaced the end of the measurement (how far it has moved since it last struck the pin).
    Suitable graduations around the perimeter of the wheel could assist in this.
    Another way would be to simply divide the wheel perimeter with suitable equi- spaced markings, and mark 1 of them in a different colour. You start measuring by placing the coloured marking on the start point, and counting it each time it goes to the ground. Add to this, the number of other markings that have passed contact with the ground since the last time the coloured one did. Say 18 revolutions and 6 marks went past, and you had 36 equally spaced marks, you would add 6/36ths. of the wheel perimeter (P) to P x 18.
    (6/36P) + 18P
