With pip and wheel installed

pip wheel .

will also build a wheel from the current directory (to
wheelhouse\proj-ver.whl). You can use -w to put the wheel somewhere else if
you prefer. Or if you want to build a wheel from a sdist on PyPI, something
like "pip wheel projectname" will download it and build a wheel.
