    Red Flyer Wagon Plans???

    Hello NCWW's,


    It's been a while, sorry. I am planning on building my son a Wooden Wagon with off road wheels (from Harbor Freight). Anyone build one before or have any plans for this?

    I want it to look something like this, just not a metal wagon. I want it to be a wooden wagon, wooden handle, etc. I have the same style tires and a 5/8" thick cold rolled steel for the axle, I want it to be wooded that connects to the axle and able to turn somehow???


    Any help would be greatly appreciated~!

    Thanks,

    Matthew

    IF you have the machinery; drill thru axle use either roll pin or cotter pin thru, big flat fender washer up against each side of tire. 2 holes per tire rq'd. real ez to remove if needed

    Salem,

    That looks great, Thanks. Now how do you think he made the front wheels turn... pivots on a rod maybe?

    I just have a small drill press and metal bits, or a hand drill which I probably won't use. And I was thinking of that cotter pin method with the washer both sides.

    I have a bit of Hickory....How would that hold up? I have hardly any Oak....And quite a bit of Hard Maple. I do want to use what I have....I also have Alder, but that stuff is so weak and dents very easily.

    It will probably get used mostly out doors, by my almost 3 year old son (Who jumps off trampolines, the 4th stair in our home, gets cut and doesn't cry, and is just plain old wild) It may also get used by us for the garden and what not. If that helps anyone determine the wood I should use.


    Thanks~!

    Matt - the hickory and maple should work just fine. If it was me (and it might be someday) I would use the hard maple for the wheel/axle assemblies and steering assembly, and use the hickory to make the base and stake-sides.

    Good luck and keep us posted on the progress!

    LOL how can they put up the full size plans online when they are trying to sale them?

    Well anyway you'd be hard pressed to get them printed for less than $10.

    Mitch,


    Thanks for the Link. It has great detail for the swivel action and doesn't look to bad to make.

    Thanks a BUNCH~!
