The hubs of the driven wheels, H250 and H363, extend at the pin end closer to the rim than does its very large weight. To avoid cutting into the weight I turn
the middle of the hub in the normal way, but at the pin end I put the lathe into neutral and just rocked the chuck back and forth by hand while gradualy
moving the tool further towards the edge.
