Drawings and details after request from wouldi
I had a few questions to my Soapbox car post, and today a mail, so I will put the detail pictures, and my drawings here.
If this is not enough, please ask questions.
Plan drawing, from my little sketchbook.
Side view, from my little sketchbook.
And here the car, just before first test drive…
Seat from the side.
From the back.
I made the push bar able to turn, so it could come in a normal door, for our basement…
(Little but important detail.).
Notice the seat are secured with steel because of the heavy load from the pusch.
Also the sidebars on the seat are there for this function (to not brake the seat back).
Simple wheel fastening.
Between the car and the front borad are a bog washer to make a better turn, and to avoid tear.
Notice the foof rest, it’s made movable with a wing nut, so it fits all sizes of legs, even mine.
Front wheels under.
The rusty bar, is a old brake from the baby carriage that I let on, so it can be put for parking.
Closeup of front wheels attachment.
I took a tour downhill, and found out it could go quite fast – the kids was laughing, and my shoe on fire…
So I added this simple brake, notice the spring that holds it up.
And here we go again….
