cart axle Answered

how do you go about attaching wheels to an axle for a hand cart.



In general the wheel will have 2 bearings - The axel should fit through these with a fairly tight fit - You want the bearing to turn not the axel in the bearing. A washer and split pin keep things in place.

If NO brarings then the axel is in a plain bush and will need lots of grease regularly to preven seizing up. Fix in same way.
