Got this wheel a while ago. I'd like to know who made it.

I'm guessing, but it looks like an early Shimpo. Does it have a ring/cone drive?

No ring cone, belts and pulleys. Very well made.

I believe it is a Skutt wheel.  I cannot remember the model name, but pretty sure.

You are right. Did not know where to look but after your hint went on the internet and found it.
