A Dump Truck Adventure #6: Lights, feul tanks and mud gaurds

01-14-2018 07:51 PM by George_SA | 0 comments »

Lights made from 16mm dowel. The lights are stove bolts which fit just nicely on the dowel face. I drilled a center hole and screwed the stove bolts in. The lights will be attached to the truck with dowels. The fuel tanks. My original plan was to make round fuel tanks, but I decided that square fuel tanks would be easier to make. I cut slots on the tanks and inserted splines and then sanded them flush afterwards. (To achieve the same effect on a round tank would involve a glue up with t...

A Dump Truck Adventure #5: Cab components

Cab floor and firewall Drilling the hole for the steering wheel at a 60 deg angle Steering Wheel Although the 60 deg angle for the steering wheel looked ok on my SketchUp plan, but a 45 deg Angle looked better in real life. I just reamed the hole a bit. As an after thought I also installed a dash. The seat The back wall I discovered an easy way to cut pieces to a specific length on my sled.I set the length with my square And then use the square as a setup guide for the cu...

A Dump Truck Adventure #4: The engine and radiator Part 3

01-11-2018 04:09 PM by George_SA | 4 comments »

After the radiator was glued to the engine block Now to round the bonnet corners. I could either sand them round or I could use the round over on the router table. This last option is a bit more risky ito tear out. Despite that I decided to go the router route, but there was a problem. I still need to make one of those fancy router table fences where the gap for the router bit is adjustable. The present fence’s gap is a bit big for the size of the engine. So I made a temporary fen...

A Dump Truck Adventure #1: Humble beginnings

01-03-2018 07:20 PM by George_SA | 4 comments »

It is time for another truck making adventure. The little guy who received this Old Time Farm Truck for his 1st birthday has a little brother who is now also nearing his 1st birthday. As usual I asked professor Google and his assistants YouTube and Pinterest for some ideas and from those Ideas I decided on a dump truck. First I needed a plan and SketchUp proved to be handy again. I drew the plans (available over her) As usual I start with the chassis. Although I prefer my Small ...

Toy Construction #123: Delivery Truck Grill & interier

11-29-2016 12:15 AM by htl | 8 comments »

The pictures on the plans for the front of the truck just don’t seem to make much sense to me but I ended up getting something done on it. It really doesn’t look like I got much done but the front end and grill were a pain to figure out so just went my own way and got er done. Had some fun working on the seats and steering wheel.I got to remember to put in a shifter before I glue up the top.The steering wheel was supposed to look like one with finger grips but looks...

Here’s the Project Post Tried blacking out the fenders and it turned out ok, walnut is a much blacker wood when stained but the oaks wood grain peeking through looks pretty good. but won’t be doing it again I think. The danish oil should look good.

Toy Construction #57: Tanker Truck #1

06-03-2016 12:11 AM by htl | 14 comments »

Started playing with the plans for the tanker truck.T&J has two tanker trucks, this one was put out in 1985 if I remember right and is a very simple plan with 2 pages to work with.The newer one is much more elaborate having tool boxes and oil drums on the sides.It had fenders going to the tool boxes and stopping. The one I have has full fenders but no tool boxes and the tank is rounder. I’m going to be copying the squarer looking tank but still not sure about the tools boxes y...

An adventure in making toys - Old Time Farm Truck #9: Headlamps and mudguards

05-27-2015 12:15 PM by George_SA | 7 comments »

I used the end of a broomstick for the two headlamps. I didn’t have a 20 mm dowel and I did not want to fire up the lathe to turn a such a short 20mm spindle and also the broomstick was just the right diameter and it was only a very short piece that was needed. The headlamps will be attached to the engine block with dowels. I also used two washers and attached them with screws to make the headlamps a bit more interesting With the mudguards I reverted back to my original plan. ...
