One Horse Power

Postby Barnyard » Mon Sep 26, 2011 10:11 pm

Rosie and I like some of the Early American vehicles. We picked this up tonight to set under the oak tree for special holidays. I need to treat the wood first so it doesn't end up like our wagon.

Bill,

Glad to see you are using it for a decoration and not an expectation for Rosie to address high fuel costs.... :D

David, I think the harness will fit her just fine. I could get her to pull me in the Christmas parade if I dangle one of Miss Janet's cookies in front of her on the pole I use to put the Christmas lights high in my trees.

Gary, I'm thinking Halloween with the skeleton and Christmas with Santa in the seat and my nine foot reindeer pulling it.

Harold, the seller thinks it is from about 1900. It is a doctor's Buggy and I found it about 30 miles from Ralph on one of those old, and winding as all get out, Kentucky backroads.

Rudi wrote:Any idea who built it?

No idea, I can't find any markings.

All in all, it is in really good shape. One of the rotted wheels is the wrong size and I can remedy that. The floor is missing a few sections but that too is an easy fix. The owner said it looked like it originally had a thin plywood floor. The other piece looked to be about 5/16 lumber. I reminded him that plywood wasn't first used until about WWII. :lol:

No room for a spare in this trunk. The rebar was not an option.

The step is solid. It heald my weight when I stepped up on it.

Image Image
There's a little storage space under the seat

Two of the wheels have a lot of rot where they had sunk into the barn floor. The other two wheels are starting to show signs of rot also.

Bill, I need to check my stash, but I "Think" I might have a wheel lying around. From what I remember it's not damaged, but has the metal ring around the wooden rim. I think I stashed it up in the loft of my barn, I'll have to look for it in the next few days and if I find it I'll take some measurements and try to get some pics to send you, might be of use to you.

Nice project rig Bill. It looks like a fairly managable restore. :D

For a little added info. The picture is of the type of tools that were probably used to build the wheels back in the day.

They are :

Top : Adjustable circular or "radius" plane , to smoothe the inside and outside of the wooden wheel.

Bottom Left : Spoke Pointer , to taper the spoke or tenon to make it easier to start in to the wheels hole.

Bottom Center: Tenon Cutter , to cut and size the end of the spoke ( round ) to match the size of the spoke hole on the inside of the wheel.

Bottom Right: Socket for use in a hand drill or "brace" to tighten the square nut that connects the metal "tire" to the wooden wheel.
