The length of handles for each wheelbarrow model is different. In the rebuild you put "The handles ended up being about 61″ long by 1.5″ thick.' You did not clearly state or show in the pictures that you copied the original handles. This length will be different for many barrows as the balance point differs ... try several barrows at the hardware store with a bag of mulch and you will find some are easier for you to handle. That is due to your height, and the balance point that puts the load on the wheel.
Yes, the the balance point is governed by several measurements: Operator height, arm length, distance from wheel to back of load and length of handles. I do like wood handles on my barrows, the steel is worse for vibration on long hauls! I've used both.
I understand VincentT57, every wheelbarrow has a balance point weight that distributes the load on the wheel and makes it easier to push.
Thank you for a great remake! I got this tool over 40 years ago to use on my farm .... still using it! I did change out the handle to your way as my hands got tired too quickly! love this tool!
I've been doing this for parrot perches, swings and toys ... easy clean in the dishwasher!
I used stable door trolley/ track for my salvage heavy louvered doors since my garage is too low for an overhead door opener. Hardware came from the feed store! Picture is pre trim and final paint. Picture is before trim and finalpaint.
Dear, this is not waste - to have a blob you can use there has to be some substance. The flour holds some moisture and 'glues' the salt together. The warm water speeds the cooking time which sets the flour to adhere and stretch. The cream of tartar acts as a preservative and stabilizes the flour. You can use baking soda instead, but add a bit more.
I have seen this done with the colored resin layered waste from building surf boards ... Worth looking ...
I rescue, train and live with parrots (and a lot of other critters) ... I will be making this cape! Great instructions.
Ohhh how fun! Can't have piercings for my work .... but tried it out and will be sporting a ton of these in large, small, black and with metal bead for Halloween! Oh the surprise I will find!
Yet you live on Earth where many millions have died!
My dear Helen, please be aware that lock picking has been around as long as there have been locks. I figured all of this tutorial out when I was 11. I am now 65. I have never abused my knowledge, though one friend did go behind my back, questioning my integrity after I unlocked her house for her and showed her how to fix her vulnerability. People!.
