I thought I would take on this electronic monster again and try another project. This 379 model Pete tri axel I designed and built around 2000. The tarp rolls up, tag axel lifts and I drilled the lift cylinder so the bed will stay up. I used Walnut, Syacamore and 1/8 inch Baltic Birch plywood for this project. The wheels I bought and then put my design on them. The model measures 6 1/2×9 x 23 inches. Enjoy

Wow that is great. There are so many details that I notice each time I scroll through your pictures, like the tarp to cover the load that I spotted this time round.
