Technical Release: TR36 - Twin Plastic Plain Bearing Axle for Donkey Carts (1999)

These bearings are made of PVC water pipe. Polythene pipe would be much better but is not so easily available.

The system shown here is for two offset live axles (ie the axles go round). Using two axles allows any wheels to be used and provides plenty of room for the bearings.
