Where can I find pre-assembled mechanical parts (wheels/axels/tongue,
etc.) for a child's wagon? I do /not/ want wooden or spoked wheels; I
want standard steel wheels and pneumatic tires as featured on Radio
Flyer and Bobbybilt wagons.
Go to Harbor Freight or Northern Tools, or any other of the folks that
sell the large garden type haul wagons. It is much easier and cheaper
to buy something like this and pirate the parts you want rather than to
try to find all the parts seperately.
Then you can build any type, style or design you want. You could even
build one of those old woody wagons.
I had a Radio Flyer myself..
Speaking as one who has built a wagon or two, google for "pneumatic
tires" and separately for "steel rod" for axles. www.woodonline.com has
a plan for a kid wagon. They reference Meisel as a source for the
hardware which is a bit pricey but well engineered. Enjoy.
