John Deere #8 Lawn Cart

I'm making a "replica" of the #8 out of the Toro to finish my older model JD cart collection. Had to make the stake pockets & handlebar, the handlebar grip is ordered. The wheels I found are 1/2" wider than the originals, same hight (Toro had 2" taller wheels). I'm working on the wood stake sides today. Hope to have it finished next week. ~~ grnspot110

Everyone wants the "original" but some times you just can't find one.
There is nothing wrong with making a replica and it looks and works just as good as that elusive original did.

Well, all stop, broke the belt on my Delta bench-top planer! Working on a parts order now, shouldn't take too long to get. Should've had one on hand, just hadn't thought of it.
Oh well, get back to the project next week! Not a big deal, I'll find something els to do for a few days! ~~ grnspot110
