This carriage carrying passengers, mail and baggage over 300 Km. By road with many potholes and poorly maintained between Lisbon and Porto, so these wheels had different characteristics of normal wheels, they had to be strong and robust to support these efforts huge yet sometimes they to collapse, was common in very hot summer days have to be wet along the pathways to maintain uniform set. and united, cubes and snip were usually made of wood and oak beams in mangrove, the rays of this carriage are staggered in front and back to 4 and 7 degrees to give more reinforcement and stability to the wheels. although this construction is not really suitable for beginners, the difficulty it offers, I promise that in the near future here will show a very easy model to make for those who like to start this magnificent hobby of building animal-drawn vehicles.
here are some photos of how I do the wheels of this carriage, I hope you enjoy and appreciate, thank you.
