Trolley handles.

Post by stationary stu on Sat Jun 11 2011, 10:50

Has anyone the plans to make some handles to make a trolley ( trolley with single axle). There is a guy sells them on ebay but we had a bit of a falling out after he sold me some things that were damaged and I named and shamed him which he wasn't happy about Laughing Laughing Laughing

Thanks Paul.

Mike if you could please, the plans from Paul are very detailed and it needs some of it bending, I'm after a set with straight handles, you could add some pics if you don't mind also please Mike.

Yeah I know of a few blacksmiths, we even have one that's a member of the local club I'm in also one just a few minutes drive up the road, so I'll see what I can sort. I was looking at doing it myself (anything to save money Laughing ) I might still! as I have an idea for them. Wink

Hi Stu, I made up a two wheeled trolley for a Lister D the drawings were adapted from the drawings in the D Development booklet.

I did not bend the handles but welded them on to the shafts coming from the trolley. I got the "kick" of the handles by cutting through the other side of the handle bending them over and welding the cut back solid.

I don t have photos but it was acceptable to me and I am a fussy sod.

That's the type of job I was thinking about Bill, so I could do it all myself. I was also looking at making the handles detachable near the base so they could be removed to save space in the shed and when transporting. I want them to have an angle so to give more leverage when moving the engine about.

Will do Mike, once I get things sorted and if it all works out I'll try and remember and take some pics.
