« Part 2: The base Part 3 of Forklift series Part 4: Engine »

After I made a plan for a forklift it was time to build my own. This blog is about the build process. Beaware that the way I build my models are not the only one. I’m sure that in a lot of situations there are better ones! For that reason comments with orther techniques are more than welcome. Thanks to the work of SouthavenToyMaker you already can see the end result.

Looking good!!!

When I first got my plans I wanted to see what the wheels would size out to be in inches, so I printed out the wheel pages and as I was doing so saw that my printer set up was on [print to fit page] and it just didn’t sound right and as I looked into it farther found I needed to set my printer to full page prints.
So what I’m trying to say is keep an eye on where your printer settings are.
Just my $.02, but maybe it will be helpful to someone.

The plan is starting with 2 pages of text, maybe it is a good idea to read them first. And also the FAQ can help.

How to print the patterns?
The pattern and template PDFs you can download have been fitted onto Letter (8-1/2″ x 11″) paper at a 1:1 scale. This makes it possible to print to either Letter or A4 sized paper. We recommend you to use Acrobat Reader for printing as we have experienced scaling issues with other PDF readers. Make sure to disable Scale to Fit and print at 100% scale for the prints to be exactly the right dimensions. Every template page includes a scale in both metric and imperial units for you to verify that the print has been printed correctly.

Do you hand draw your plans or use a program. If a program, which one? By the way, project looks great.
