Model of a shriner Go-kart
« on: December 23, 2022, 16:43:26 pm »
Just showing a few pieces CamBam helped me out with. The go-karts are 1/2 scale 1910 Model T Fords. They were built buy Snapper mower before Snapper was Snapper. I used CamBam to make a 1/3 sized front axle and transaxle cases. Soon I will do the spokes for the wheels as soon as the storm moves on and I can get some wood and a collet.

Couple more.

I added one shot of the full size car. The parts in all the other photos are 33.3% in size.

If I had one of those go karts, I'd  be grinning like a 'Cheshire Cat' too.
 
Years ago I watched a video of some guy's make a set of wagon wheels for a
Borax wagon, IIRC they took about a week or so, and wondered at the time how
they made them for a production line, I couldn't find a video of the spokes
being made.
I think it's a copy lathe process like for gun stocks, I did find this video
of a man on the production line assembling the spokes into the hubs and rim
At 2:16. I don't think I could not have kept up that frenetic pace for too long.

Quite remarkable Steve, that brass must have cost a pretty penny.

Thanks.

Yeah the brass was a few bucks but easy to work with. The shame of it is it will all be painted. I'm also going to make wood spoked wheels. When they are done they will also be painted. The standard car was black with red wheels and a gold grill. Unfortunately that's what I'm doing.

Over the years the controls alot. In 1959 when they first came out there were 2 levers. One for brakes and one to shift from forward, neutral, and reverse. They are only one speed forward. In the 80's the brake pedal and centrifugal clutch showed up and there was a shift handle under the seat to shift from forward to reverse. I also have one that has a brake pedal and drive pedal.  You shift into forward or reverse and then press the pedal to tension a belt and away you go. 3 different cars, 3 different control schemes. This model has the oldest setup with the 2 levers. All cars had the throttle control on the steering column unless the owner moved it.

Those are a pair of 9 cylinder radials I have been picking away at for a few years. They are a one inch bore so pretty big for me.  I would post a few pictures but I need to resize them and street outlaws is on the telly so maybe tomorrow.
