Since I had worked in manufacturing many years, I have seen many different kind of forklifts.
Recently I got familiar with SolidWorks™, so I thought I would need a challenging project to improve my CAD as well as my woodworking skills. This one works pretty well; the column can be inclined by 5 degrees so the freight does not drop down. The fork can be raised and lowered by a friction drive – the shaft holds five 10mm rubber O-rings. Like a real forklift, the rear axles can be steered.
