Big night sourcing parts and possibilitys last night, 7 hours straight.
Added to cart..
Bearings, chain, electric scooter front and rear sprockets all in 10mm. If I can't get a trolley wheel with a 10mm inner (without bearings to fit on a 10mm axle, then I have to do it all again in a bigger size.
Stimulated?

Try your local scrap metal yard.


A shovel, bucket and no clue.

Picked this up for $8 this arvo at the tip shop.
These small bikes don't have a free wheeling hub, this means I can turn the back wheel to drive the front sprocket.

Back on the perforated allow sheet hunt, having trouble, I need 550×400mm in 2mm holes and 550×400mm in 5-6mm holes..
Anyone know where? Can get it at this size on eBay but they want $60 and $60 for postage for each sheet from Melbourne?

Air cond ducting manufacturer, some older styles of fireplace flu vent protection, try a sheetmetal workshop locally.

Maybe.

When I was a kid I loved turning my pushy upside down and squirting the wheels with the hose to see how fast I could get them going ?..

I think a water wheel would be classified as a Mechanical Device, but i could be wrong.

You would be better off setting a water wheel up on the end of a river sluice to drive a trommel barrel set up at the top..
