Decided to make a trolley from scratch as the timbers was too short , but made it from softwood as a temporary measure and will replace with hardwood when i get some .






feet made but not in right position as have to cut and weld handle mounting brackets to the feet yet and drill holes



this is where the handles will be but you wont see that bar from the feet .

It be fine , with the design im making they all seemed low unless you had bolsters that bolted under like Abes , but then he has got much bigger wheels too . When its being moved it be picked up anyway so no trouble with moving about .
