« Part 24: Mistakes Part 25 of Forklift series no next part

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.

Interested in making this forklift yourself? Go to my site for more information

Always knew you Dutchmen were deviates!

Do you have a plan modification for this part,

for all those hundreds of people that will make the same mistake.

No I don’t. There will be some changes in my templates and also in the drawing but about this part I will leave it as it is.

Then you’d better stress in the instructions to use a left handed drill bit for that hole… unless you are making a right hand drive forky, in which case the hole in the wrong side is OK!
