A Manual for the Design and Fabrication of
Single-Wheeled, Hand-Driven, All-Purpose Utility Carts From the workbook
of Bruckos Grindwell, Third Son of Drumdar Grindwell, of Lower Clearstead.
To make a single-wheeled, hand-driven, all-purpose
utility cart (or "wheelbarrow", as the Non-mechina call them), you'll
need to collect the exact materials below. Any substitutions will result
in a vastly inferior product that will be ill suited for the job.
||Approved Item Description
||CU Measure (Canonical Units)
||Maple Hand Spars
||44 ½ x 2 x 2
||Derived from the lower third of
the trunk of a 31 to 43 cycles-old Maple, living at an altitude of
no greater than 1763 CU above the level of the ocean.
||Iron Cargo Tub
||11,424 CU square
||Must be built from ore mined
between the 2nd and 23rd day of Shallur and adhere to the composition
listed in Norvard's Registry of Dwarven Standards and Measures,
Volume 2, page 542.
||Load Bearing Oak Disc
||14 ¼ diameter x 3 ¼ thick
||The finished disc must then be
center-drilled with a 2 CU hole. Derived from a crossectional cut
of White Oak, no older than 120 cycles. Wood must be soaked in a
bath of Grellar's Solution for twenty-three nights, between Samral
and Virember. The finished disc must then be center-drilled with
a 1 7/8 CU hole.
||Iron Axle Rod
||1 ¼ x 6 long
||Ore must have less than 12% impurities
and undergo heat treating in a Vordman Forge, as detailed in Norvard's
Registry of Dwarven Standards and Measures, Volume 23, page 90.
The heated axle rod must be cooled in the water from Delegian Springs
and be no cooler than hand temperature.
Other materials needed include hardware and frame
assemblies. Their exact compositions and measures are covered by the construction
guidelines in Norvard's Registry of Dwarven Standards and Measures, Volume
1, page 19. They can be obtained through any reliable Dwarven sources.
