Willem, 

thanks voor the PDF, one can learn a lot from it.

I have a question ... you wrote that you use the dowel through the chassis and that you do not use axle-pegs.

But why arenĀ“t you cutting a piece of the dowel (2  -  xxx-centimeters, depending of the needed length) and use that piece as an axlepeg? You surely must have a reason for that. I am curious [rolleyes]

Hi Peter V. If I want to use dowels as axle pegs I must either take for example and 8mm dowel and work it of to a 6mm with the one end forming a head so that the wheel dont slip off the axle. Now that, according to me to do it will be a time waster. I'dd rather use a dowel through the axles holes and glue the wheels to the dowel.

As said before .... A picture says more than thousand words .... is this an idea?
Thick piece on top of smaller piece, with a thoothpick connected? It took me 3 minutes to make this, including the pictures taken.

Hi Peter
this is a great idea, I struggle to make axel pegs.
I try to drill the axel size hole through a larger dowel and glue the axel in, this is a much better way
