Sorry what's a tad off? Looks perfect to me!

My carpentry isn't the best... Or relatively near the best.

I have 2   4 wheel wagons I built out of old lawn mower frames.  Plenty strong and have the steering on them already.  After 15 years the flat bed is starting to go on the one.



Do you have any pictures of how you set up the front tongue and steering??

I am anting to do the same thing with a JD316 frame I have.

update 

 

i have finished the front axle  20160902_1811341.jpg  i made u bolts for the ends to support the steel axle fitted into the timber frame

 

 20160902_1812451.jpg & drilled the center of the axle and bolted it through the wood to stop the axle turning and moving ,

 

have to make the mounts to affix it to the turn table now

UPDATE   repairs 

 

its a bit hart finding some wheels the same and last week end i picked up an old wheel barrow in tatters just for the steel wheel on it 1473070034076.jpg this it after i trimmed 1" off 1 end and 1 1/2 off the other end 1473070044281.jpg  

 

here is the wheel with a replacement piece of flat stock same size shaped to fit and welded back in 

1473075044835.jpg 1473075067810.jpg  

 

i have to grind the welds down nice yet but it turned out pretty even when i spun the wheel so now it gives me another wheel option
