These Thurston maps are NET maps for every choice of translation term.
They have degree 17. In fact, they are Euclidean.

FUNDAMENTAL GROUP WREATH RECURSIONS
When the translation term of the affine map is 0:
NewSphereMachine(
"a=**(1,16)(2,15)(3,14)(4,13)(5,12)(6,11)(7,10)(8,9)",
"b=(1,16)(2,15)(3,14)(4,13)(5,12)(6,11)(7,10)(8,9)",
"c=****(1,17)(2,16)(3,15)(4,14)(5,13)(6,12)(7,11)(8,10)",
"d=****(1,17)(2,16)(3,15)(4,14)(5,13)(6,12)(7,11)(8,10)",
"a*b*c*d");
When the translation term of the affine map is lambda1:
