Small garden cart

Good lookin' wheels ya got there, Dave.

I put some never-flat wheels on a table saw. It moves like a wheelbarrow, much more convenient than the crap little castors. They get flat spots, sadly. I need to move the axle up a bit so the wheels don't bear any weight when not in use.

I decided to go with 1.25" x 1/8" angle (30x3mm)
Here is a prelim sketch, it was going well until a wheel fell off Big Grin

Also I've changed my mind regarding the steering - going with a 'friction plate' steering and not the 'pedal car' steering as shown.

As some of you may know I bought a new computer a year back. Don't use it much because I didn't like win 8.1. I thought win 10 would be better, .......... didn't like it. So back to win 7 and I have started to use it. Thumbsup

What does this have to do with this Small Garden Cart? ................ well all the drawings both the 3d and 2d drawings I saved to a memory stick. Now I can't find the memory stick Bash So I've given that up and redrawn it all.

So I'll post a pic with the friction plate steering - just have to tidy it up a little. Smile
