Will be running on Lister D as its the only 1 i have running at the moment

The guy i bought the drill off bought it second hand in 1957 as for the Grinder i am very unsure as i bought it in the club stall at astle park last year so never met the owner to ask any questions

Will get a video of it running this weekend and try to post when i get home

The four wheels and axles on the engine trolley are home made
The two on the grinder and drill trolley are off an old 10 tonne trolley jack

A very nice set up there. Like the workshop sink!
Abes you can get wheels like that on the Internet, just search Castors. Damned expensive though but rubber tyred trailer jockey wheels are cheaper. 4 x 200mm (8") £27.
