« Part 81: Low Boy Trailer build #1 Part 82 of Toy Construction series Part 83: Low Boy Trailer Getting er Done #3 »

Just some progress on the low boy.

Used my miter saw for all the angled cuts [22 1/2°] but when I got to this point used the drum sander on the Shopsmith to sand where the front assembly and back meet up so everything comes out just right.

Marked for center to be sure and not miss and then free hand drilled for dowels for a little extra support.

O!!! I should mention I’m making mine an 8 wheel trailer and all so shortening it from a 17” deck to a 14”er so my excavator will fit just right and so will my Dull Dozer if need be..

Always try to put a little twist to the plans, should have mixed it up with some different woods but have been getting away from that here lately for some unknown reason.

crowie I really don’t have the patience for the small stuff as you may have noticed I’m not into the mirrors and small do dads they really look nice but just not my thing.
I usually have a reason for building a project want to see how something works for this project it was making the groove on the rails.
For the Hummer it was the wheels.
The cars it was the fenders.
