  2. Good Morning

    I found your information on Irish Mail carrier carts while surfing for information. I have one I am restoring for a customer and I am trying to find a picture or info about it. It is 42 inches long and has
    pneumatic 10 inch tires on wire rims. It is heavy, it has a steel steering wheel and the shaft is the pump to provide momentum. It also has a handle for a brake/ clutch. It had a wooden seat.It has ball bearings yellow was original color, Appears to be 1920's,
    It is well built. Do you have any info or suggestion to find out info on this cart? Thanks . Hope to hear back from you. Dennis Sapp

  3. Good point on spinning the bearings after oiling them! I did that, but I forgot to mention that into the blog. I might make an edit. white metal bearings
