Introduction: Hand Trolley

Picture of Hand Trolley

I had this travel bag with the wheels falling off an wanted to make good use of it.

After refurbishing a old trolley I had lying around the house I saw a way how to put that old travel bag to use.

Step 1: Tools

screws, hacksaw, pliers, measuring tape, dremel, glue, drill,screwdriver.

I took out the broken trolley from the bag not damaging the bag any further.

I stuck the wheels back to the base of the trolley with glue and used screws to secure it, then cut off the end of the screws with a dremel.

Step 2: Making the Base

I found a wire grill to make the base with, which I cut and shaped to my desire.

the trolley arm was unscrewed from the wheels to fit the grill between then screwed back together.

Step 3: Making a Hinge

I cut the grill to the size I found best and shaped the ends with the closed end of a spanner.

the curved ends of the grill is to act as a support when weight is rest on it.

for the hinges I used two metal clips, I think I got them when I bought my pre amp...use what works best for you.

the clips were put around the grill then screwed to the corner base of the trolley.

Step 4: Last Step

I screwed some metal plates to the grill to strengthen it as a base and that's it the trolley is finished.

as you can see the base folds in for easy storage.

it's not as strong as the original but it can come in handy.

I have some ideas on how to make it stronger will post it up when I'm done.
