    Hi to all.
    Another small welding job.

    I had to lift and old wheel barrow from the ground, to save the rubber wheel from destruction.

    So I made 2 trestles (230mm high) with offcuts laying around in the garage.
    Enjoy!
    As a great youtube creator always says , stay safe and stay well.

    Nothing to do with wheelbarrows, but I've been to Padova twice :D We were trying to sell asset management software to the Italian Army, and Padova was the HQ of the group we were selling to.
    Failed, but some good food and wine was consumed in the process :)

    I don't quite understand the need for these ?
    Could you post a Photo of the wheel barrow on the trestles ?

    Sure, this afternoon I should manage to take a photo of the (50+ years old) thing.

    And here they come.
    On the sides of the wheel supports, there is the old lifting system (as a spare, should the trestles fail)

    The wheel is new. On the previous photos you can see the original axle, that I will restore and fit with an all steel wheel (in a future moment of craziness)

    @skotl Should you travel to Padova again, let me know.
    We can set up an international welding meeting (or a pizza + beer(s) )

    Have a nice Sunday, everyone! :drunk::drunk:
