INEXPENSIVE, key word, cost me $10 ($5 for a sacrificial skateboard from a flea-market & a 1/4” x 3’ glv rod).

I don’t know what I like better, your illustration with all the pictures or the Dragster Honing Guide itself. Well I must say I do really like both!
Great build and thank you for sharing and taking the time to post all the good looking photos.

Way cool and very creative. May I be the first to suggest painting flames on the sides?

Great build…another favorite to put on the build list.
Another use for the grandkids old rollerblade wheels.

Haha Rick, you sound like a garage hoarder like me!

PASs, definitely a good grandkid toy, glad I sanded all the edges down now, habit.


This dragster can be used as a touchpad holder, lol, went out in the shop and my wife was chilling at the table with her toy sitting on the dragster, too funny!

Whoduhthunk it’d double as a Grandkid dragster & touchpad holder?

Grand kids, gotta love em

Looks like you didn’t make enough, but wait skate boards of four wheels.
time to tear a part some more clamps and get busy.

I like it Brett could be fun to play with

Thanks everyone, was a fun 1-day project. I’d be glad to share the pics horky, I need to clean up a couple details with the axle dimensions and screw handle from my as-built drawings. Minor stuff but I’m overly detail oriented.

I’m going to give this Sketchup Storage online a try and post a link this week.
