I like your wagon, Tony.

I have a magnetic strip for my tools. It holds them vertically, I like your under the shelf arrangement better, so I'll probably change mine.

Bob and George, thank you.

Yes, that magnetic strip is handier than you realize. I have a couple of shorter ones in the garage, and I decided to bite the bullet to get this one. I like them.

Tony,

Really nice job on the wagon. And a great start on the roof access.

Mike

Thanks Jerry. I have the smaller mattress pile, and found out it is a perfect fit, I just shaved a little shaving off the second one up so the sides wouldn't bow out, and I have progressed with making the springs and seat, so it is coming along nicely.

Was going to use it under the cyclone, but changed my mind. It looks very much like a previous picture I found and posted here.

OK, except for a little touch up here and there, I have the wagon finished. The horses were out back being fed and resting until the mattresses was finally loaded and secure. I decided to add the hitching for the horses, and that may not be 100% correct, but in this scale, I have done what I think is a good representation. It was tedious enough.





















It came close to this one, just a single horse rather than my 2 horse hitch. And I see a cover over the seat. The wagon is a little different, and the mattresses are stacked higher and more of them, but I wanted to get the flavor of it, not do an exact copy.

This picture is about the actual size.

Does storing the tools on a magnet induce any magnetism in the tools? Once in a while I use my files on steel...

Possibly. To make something magnetic, you have to rub the tool across a magnet to re-align the electrons, in normal steel, they are all over the place, inducing magnetism, as in a magnetic particle machine (non-destructive testing [NDT] process for detecting surface and slightly subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials such as iron, nickel, cobalt, and some of their alloys) will make that object magnetic by aligning all the electrons; we use a Mag machine at work on every part we have, except those made of non magnetic alloys like aluminium, brass, inconel, incoloy, etc., where we do liquid penetrant inspection, so normal use may induce a slight amount over time, as some of my tweezers are magnetic, so I bought a couple of non-magnetic tweezers for when I want nothing to stick to them. But this can be un-done, by running the tool through a magnet again, as we do at work sometimes.

Tony,

I agree, you captured the look. The flavor, as you put it. Very unusual, just when it seems there's nothing new to model.

Mike

Thanks Mike, Once in a while, I see something that inspires.

You are going to need to beef up the suspension on the wagon to carry that nickel.

Dave, thank you. I try not to imagine it too much myself, either.

Bryan, the nickel is a lot lighter than you think After all, it's easily supported by the wagon, it's getting it up there, that's the thing. I think I would need to enlist the help of Chester's crane.
