I was going through my junk pile trying to get my mind off of how bad this week has been and found some stuff I think I will build a new wagonImageUploadedByTapatalk1431200581.137660.jpg

I plan on using what use to be the homemade pro on the 102 I traded off as the axleImageUploadedByTapatalk1431201158.268342.jpg

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that uses old bed frames in projects. You can find them at yard sales for basically nothing or if you live in a college town go dumpster diving in the spring when the kids leave town.

I use them on a bunch of things, including my wagon frame.

Great idea on the axle. I use bed frames a lot too their very handy to have around. Now that I'm moving I will be building one too. My old one is rotted too much to salvage. What kind of wheels & tires will you be using.

I'm thinking about finding some garden tractor hubs like on the back of my Sears uses some garden tractor wheels and tires on it .

Dummy me I'm always thinking about finding large front wheels & tires but never considered rears from a LT. These are on CL regularly. My first one I built I used wheelbarrow wheels & tires. It worked well but couldn't handle real heavy loads. I like your axle set up. I'm thinking a 1" steel pipe for axle housing then stub out 3/4" round stock for the axles. Keep us posted.
