I'm making my two nose gears from balsa. I've laminated two hard balsa 3/32" sheets together with a 1/4" soft balsa core cross grained. They are 1" in outside diameter and 3/4" inside diameter. I haven't decided on hub size yet but I'll start with a 1/8" hole. They will have 12 teeth each. After formed I will coat the teeth with several coats of white glue. I've drafted the two cross sections on tracing paper and will glue onto the block so the drilled hole matches the center of the circles.
