Hand cart work
Using tack welds on the wheel assembly
Then I needed to mount the wheel assembly to the cart so I started out this way. I just use tack welds just in case I needed to take it apart again. For those not in the know a tack weld is just a small weld to hold things together that can be broken easily if one needs to change something. When assembling things it’s a good idea to use tack welds especially making something for the first time.
Carts together sorta
Testing the cart out
One more improvement needs to be done
This is the almost finished sack cart. There’s still something that could use some improvement I hadn’t thought about. The cart handle could use about another foot on it to give more leverage when tilting the cart back loaded. It’s doable with how it is but extending the handle would make it easier to use.
The leak was hard to find. It’s on the top showing a rim leak which I will have to fix but for now I inflated the tire a bit over the maximum pressure to see if it will seal. It did slow down when I did that so I’ll check it again tomorrow.
Fed the peeps
Rodent traps project
Then I started the rodent trap repairs. My brother Tom brought these by the other day and asked me to repair them and do some improvements. They looked like they’d been sitting out in the bushes for awhile, a long while.
That’s as far as I got as I’m waiting for my brother to bring back my screw gun as it’s needed to screw things together.
