Grandson’s second birthday present. Way too big at the time but I didn’t realize it until it was almost done, too late to change plans…....but he’ll grow into it!

John, yes I bought the plans for Irish Mail Handcar from Roudebush (http://roudebushco.com/woodworking-kits). They used to sell a hardware kit (wheels, axles, etc) but I don’t think they still do. If I remember correctly the plans include the detail for building the cam axle/drive (my terminology). Also seem to recall that you can call and talk to a knowledgeable person who puts together the plans and parts. Good luck! Phil

The website says they have the wheels in stock, ready to ship, but they don’t have them listed in their products so I think I would follow Phil’s advice and give them a call.

Very nice looking project Phil!

I bought the kit in 2015 from CottageCraftWorks.com, they have another site called Woodworking-kits.com. On their site it is called an ‘Irish Handcar’ (not handcart) so you can also try searching for that. The paper plans that came with their kit were from Roudebush Company. Hope this helps!
