Stu im getting alot better with wood its all about planning it out as drawing some designs up and taking your time . Remember measure twice cut once ! Have been learning various skills of my dad and a few people of the internet ie youtube and a wood working forum .

I DO like a nice trolley made from some hardwood , but if you need strength go to a steel one . Im in 2 minds what to do for the fowler trolley , i know it will just be a fixed axle but do i go wood or steel ... Question

The weight of the Fowler and a fixed axle I think I'd go for steel, as moving it round will put pressure on the bolts ect where they fix into the wood. My opinion you know whats best for you.

I cant see how its would strain the wood stu .... Bolts would be 12mm coach bolts , but over time it could wear a oval hole in the wood i suppose.
