Default Re: rag joint assembly?

Ive noticed most of the sprockets I've worked with have not been cut perfectly round so measuring from end of sprocket to edge of wheel will only get you close,,the only way to get a sprocket/rag joint perfect is by just snugging all the bolts up evenly,,then spin the wheel and eyeball the sprocket,,tap it with a dead blow or rubber mallet so its got no run out,,then snug in a star fashion a little more,,keep checking for wobble and run out,,after all the bolts are evenly tight,,if you have a little wobble you can get it perfect by tightening high spots where the sprocket wobbles away from the frame by sucking it in a little.
