  • Kid project

    Every kid should build a red wagon. It's a great experience and cheap to build from the JunQue pile.
    Totally buildable with just a small MIG and cutoff wheel + a bit of skill.

    Tons of things to be learned, like 4 over 3 framing and extrapolating an old fashioned coach brake into the wagon design.
    Makes a convenient project bench you can pull out of the shop and push back in easy too because it has big tires, and the semi independent front axle along with 4/3 design prevents the tipping often found in 5th wheel wagons.

    This one is 35 years old, and has only had 1 deck rebuild. Got a few hundred miles on it, and the little woman loves setting up her canning operation up on it so the house don't smell like maters for 2 weeks.

      Looks like a 4/4 frame Bob.

      I prefer 4/3 because it handles dips better without stressing the deck.

        I like aametalmasters better. I think you are just jealous because his is better and yours is inferior! Suck it up buttercup!

          Sure thing there little fellow. Bob's design is so simple even you should be able to build a copy once you finish assembling the China made wagon from True value. How long you been on that job now, 2 years?

          BTW, mine is 35 years old with only deck and tire replacement.

          Bob can stop by my grave in 35 years and tell me how his is doing.

            Looks real nice, Bob. I like how you did those axle supports. Smart. What did you use for the pivot point on the front steering axle? Just a bolt or an actual bearing?

              looks nice, lot of work in that, this is one I made for it was and is to haul heavy loads, fun to build and easy on the back better than a two wheel dolly. that four wheel steer helps in tight spots.
