Tom, Thank you for writing about the water cart design! That's very
helpful. I look forward to Samwel's photos. Please upload them to

WATER CART DESING AND CONSTRUCTION USING AVALIABLE TOOLS
Used Materails 1 Angle line 2 Lengths of 40 feet
2 Round Pipe 1 Length for Handles
3 Old car differential
You will see in the picture a frame of Samson and a completed Goliath.
All the Metals /Iron metals must be new ones Not used because the will
be joined using the welding rods and therefore if they were used this
will cause problems, because of weight they will not carry the load,
hence the must also not be so thick or too heavy or large inside because
they were pulled or pushed by human beings who are likely to be between
60 to 100kg when they are heavy the require either machines or animals
like donkey to pull or push.
Angle line Iron metals are cut and measured beginning with the length:
5.62 ft and with 2.26 ft while depth or deep inside is 2.26 ft. The pipe
to make the handles is 1 inch in Diameter and 3 ft in size. An old
differential from a saloon car can be used or round pipe 2 inch diameter
3 ft in length this will hold the 2 tryres of size 14 car tryre not
acar of more than 2 .5 tones. If bigger tryre is used then pulling it
will be difficult because of the preasure inside pressure adds more weight.
Step 1: Gather all the metals required
Measuring of the metals then using hacksaw cart the
longer sides first to Avoid the waste: Ensure that the sizes fits
together therefore you will have 4 pieces of 5.62 ft,then if that is
done cut the width ,wider part s taht are shorter make sure they are 4
of 2.26 feet each running left to right 2 times for front and back ,then
cut Dipper part or depth which is also 4 runing up down for front and
back ,then you will get the well rods that fits the design not hard
ones for unigrtaors /joining trailers but manufacturing og window frames
Step 2: Join all the Metals cuts together ,so that the pieces makes
the frame you see on the pictures we have pictures of cutting on and
pictures of joining ,aftter joning the frame, look at the sides and
measure again to ensure good and correct size, bring in the square and
measure the sizes ,so that all the Angles agree if not then when loaded
it will always bend to one side. Before going to the next step then
using grinder smoothen all the angles and any spot that forms pimples
which is harmful ,its difficult to apply paint also with this sports.
step 3: Together Turn it upside down and check the Balances again
this will make you construct the bottom casing,in order to fit the
driving shaft of Differentials, welled this together so you will have
frame and shaft or the pipe holding the tyre, Smooth both sides before
putting the bearings standard size of 2inches then in the bearing apply
Grease 1/4 kg to the bearing and surface. Make sure the bearing fits so
tight to the metals id it runs loose the tyre with load is likely to
Step 4: Now fit the tyres into the Rims both sides make sure the tubes
are in but dont put pressure first ,this will not make the balance
accurate as it will be heavily already ,it will be the last stage before
putting water. Then begin with either side put it into the bottom shaft
or rolling pipes, you will have both tyres fitted after finishing.
Step 5: Now with both tyres on its light since there is no pressure
inside of the tyres turn it over with the tyres touching the ground, now
measure the handles then weld them both left and right ,grind the
necessary sport to smooth. Then try pusshing it over back and forth.
Apply red oxide paint which the metals absorbs well allow it to settle
this was Done by Sam Kongere ,Please He will put the pictures ,the apple
the final coating ,then putt the timbers inside for Jericans to rest on
with load .There is no need to paint the timber ,as it wil always be wet
and the rubbing of Jericans clear off the paints.
Jerricans/Containers: This is important to note Ensure you get used
Accid Jeri cans not ordinary like food /oil containers because the are
light but Acid ones are stronger and last made for sulphuric acid, clean
them thoroughly with hot water before use and soap,then several times
dry them .Go and put pressure on the tyres ,before going for water ,your
CART IS Now ready for use,
Note: Size of cart depend on materail and weight
Color does not matter alot
Write using paint your containers or label them foe
safety as the also look alike.
Please feel free to contact me, I will write now next on the progress,
Thanks to Andrius,Janet,Ricardo, Pam maclean and all MS Members,
