INEXPENSIVE, key word, cost me $10 ($5 for a sacrificial skateboard from a flea-market & a 1/4” x 3’ glv rod).

I don’t know what I like better, your illustration with all the pictures or the Dragster Honing Guide itself. Well I must say I do really like both!
Great build and thank you for sharing and taking the time to post all the good looking photos.

Way cool and very creative. May I be the first to suggest painting flames on the sides?

I knew I was saving skateboard wheels for a reason :) Very clever, I like it.

Great build…another favorite to put on the build list.
Another use for the grandkids old rollerblade wheels.

Haha Rick, you sound like a garage hoarder like me!

PASs, definitely a good grandkid toy, glad I sanded all the edges down now, habit.

BREAKING NEWS:

This dragster can be used as a touchpad holder, lol, went out in the shop and my wife was chilling at the table with her toy sitting on the dragster, too funny!

Whoduhthunk it’d double as a Grandkid dragster & touchpad holder?

Grand kids, gotta love em

Looks like you didn’t make enough, but wait skate boards of four wheels.
time to tear a part some more clamps and get busy.

I like it Brett could be fun to play with

Thanks everyone, was a fun 1-day project. I’d be glad to share the pics horky, I need to clean up a couple details with the axle dimensions and screw handle from my as-built drawings. Minor stuff but I’m overly detail oriented.

I’m going to give this Sketchup Storage online a try and post a link this week.
