Random pic, google search. Just looking for a picture of one that used wood.

"wooden running gear" gets you a bunch of conastoga plans BTW :)

In my teens I scooped a lot of feed out of a wood framed flare side wagon. The only metal on it was the steel spoked wheels and hubs(there is a name for them flares on the hubs, I can't remember) on wooden axles and the bolts and straping to hold it together. Pulled it to the elevator with a BF Avery Model A, got feed and then scooped the feed into a grainery. The manure spreader we used was built the same way with a flat chain that ran from the wheel to a gearbox to drive the bed chain and slingers.

Got most of the bed framed up over the weekend. It's been over 100 deg. daily here for over 2 weeks now so things are just alittle slow going. Decided to use golf cart tires that are 18x8.50-8 instead of the lawnmower tires that are 16x6.50-8. Really makes it look like big floater tires.

I haven't had much time lately to think about what I will do. I just remembered I do have some 1" schedule 40 pipe that would make a good center piece. I would have to get a short 1-1/4" piece for it to 'swivel' in. Think that would work?

I think so / just weld 2 pieces of pipe with a 2 or 3 inch gap in the middle and put a loose piece of pipe in the middle part with a set screw in it. I'll try to get a finished pic up this week end, finish to night and very proud of it. works like a charm. $25 in tubes thats it.

Here's what I did. I just used a Gilson LT frame. It's not really built like a gear. http://s1172.photobu...or LTs and GTs/

Very impressive guys. By the way, I have a farmer built Model T wagon in my back yard, bought it for 20 bucks at auction. It has been farmer upgraded over the years to use for falcon wheels and tires (the farmer didn't prefer those tall skinny wheels and tires sinking in everywhere). I do want to build a 4 wheel GT wagon though, and actually have everything I need to do it with, just no time lol.

Mine is smaller than you're building (1/3 scale), 2' x 4'. I built it with measurements from a JD 953 gear, tried to stay as close as possible.

Just for an idea of size:
