Nice wagon!
Did you make the wheels, or buy them?
How or where?

Nice, simple wagon, expertly crafted!

How did they hold the support pegs in place when folded up?

The legs were held up with just a strip of leather, one end nailed to the vehicle and the other end was folded over the leg and shoved onto a pin to hold it all up.

First photo shows the leather strip on the pole just hanging down and the leg is in use.

Fourth photo shows the strip hanging down near the rear leg.

Easy as that lot. :-)

Hi Carlo -------- Nice wagon!
                        Did you make the wheels, or buy them?
                        How or where?

A Waggon has FOUR wheels and a Cart has only TWO wheels.

Have a look thru this lot as to how to make the wheels. :-)

Here's a 1/12th scale 'Butchers Carcase Cart', made from the drawings of J.E.Bishop and Sons, printed in "The Australasian Coachbuilder and Wheelwright, Feb, 1911.

Followed the paint scheme of the 'Newport and Tancred' Sydney Meat Waggon, to keep it with that group of vehicles.

The carcase's were just thrown into the back of this type of vehicle, like stacking logs, not very hygienic at all, eh.

Those carts must have had quite an odor. Excellent workmanship as always on the model.

-----------------  Those carts must have had quite an odor.  -----------

Somebody told me that they were lined with sheets of Zinc, if so, then they would have been able to hose it out, at the the end of each day.

If just bare timber inside of them, yes, they would be a bit 'wiffy' after a while, eh. :-)
