has been great progress on the building of the buggy for the Raffle at
the AGM this coming June - here are some photos taken of the seat just
before it is sent up to Randy Kirschner's shop at Charlie Lake, BC for
upholstery. Be sure to attend the AGM and the Parades this summer to
see it for yourself!

The tyre was in the fire the entire time and expanded
sufficient to go over the felloe. We succeeded and met the challenge
of rebuilding a heavy wheel without cutting the tyre. Considrable
measuring and discussion of all aspects of building a wheel resulted
in a very happy and surprising client.
This was a front wheel of an old farm wagon that was
built from the hub out with enough precision to apply the old steel
without cutting it.
Cooling the iron quickly takes concentration.
The participants with several of the wheels
constructed over the two days in the background.
