witte saw engine trolley taking shape...

Post by mike d on Mon May 30, 2011 12:26 am

HI ALL..
here's the engine trolley for my witte saw engine,Ive made a new one as the other one was poo,Ive stripped the tank back to bear metal and now waiting for it to dry and my boys to lift the engine onto the trolley.then its all ready for showing...the trolley is a steerable one for easy movements for me..







regards,mike.

MATT,
thanks for the comments,it looks better than it did when it arrived here..
you wood will be the same as mine,but you will need to stain it or varnish it,which ever you wish to do to it.
it starts off the same colour as the wood i showed you that's in the shed,and ends up this colour..
will post more once the engine is on it and the tank is also done..
regards,mike.

THANKS GUYS...its always nice to see an engine on a nice trolley,i think it makes the engine stand out...
the trolley that it was on made it look realy rough,now I'm hoping it will improve the engine...
when Ive painted the tank,it will be ready for my boys to lift it back on the trolley...then its off to a rally..back permitting of course..
regards,mike.

Opps did I say something wrong about the camcorder lol! lol! lol! glad you managed to get it sorted and your money back, sometimes not the easy to do on fleabay.

You'll need to crank up a reliable engine today and attach a good pump with plenty of pressure and have a good supply of water and a hose attached to the oulet side of the pump, just in case all the flames on your birthday cake gets out of control you can put the fire out yourself lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

Have a gud un mate,
