Default Little Silver Wagon

Hell, everybody has a red one, and since the silver paint was free, this one is a silver wagon.
Actually, the only thing I paid for on this project was the MIG wire and Co2.
Everything else came off one JUNQUE pile or another. Also, naturally the WIFF asked "what do we need that for", witch translates into it will take her 2 weeks to find it indispensable.
The handle has interchangable pieces so it can either be pulled by hand, or hooked behind HER garden tractor.

Front view
Yes, those are wheel blocks, and the front end did come from a garden tractor some rich guy was throwing out.

Rear view
The wheels were drivers from another "tractor" so I inserted oilite bearings that accomodated the difference in diameter between the hub and the axel.

Franz, that thing looks like it would be perfect for hauling field stones. Most wagons just aren't up to the job.
