Plan-Sets offered to construct carts and wagons.
Wagon - Delivery Van •••• Vans were used for delivery by: baker’s, butcher’s, bottler’s, used for advertising and delivery of dry goods, flowers, furniture, ice, mail, milk and by butchers, peddler’s, and police. Booklet and Plan-Set includes: 3) super B sheets and 4) super A size pags which include a material list, prototype information, construction photos and painting and UV stabilization suggestions.​ 
Wagon - Heavy Duty Dray •••• Drays are the strongest type of commercial freight wagons pulled by a team of draft animals. Generally they were used in and around the “big city" to haul heavy loads well into the 1920s and beyond. Floors were flat with smaller wheels than a Farm Wagon for easy lower loading of large machinery and parts and even a casket if no hearse was available. The Pullman RR Car Co. used Drays to move wheel sets and other Pullman Car parts around their factory complex. This design is a model of a ten-ton capacity Dray with a full-circle fifth-wheel which provided greater maneuverability within crowded city streets. Plan-set options include different style stakes and a Turning Seat. Booklet & Plan-Set includes: 9) 13" x 19" super B size sheets with all details shown full scale to be used as templates, material list,Wheel  Jig drawings 24) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A sheets of prototype information and construction suggestions sheets.
Plan-Set ONLY consists: of 9) 13" x 19" super B, 10) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size, sheets only.
Wagon - American Farm Box •••• These are very detailed plans down to the nuts and bolts. There is no way to compare a finished model built from these plans compared to a laser cut built kit. It is reported that there were almost a 1000 wagon builders across American in the late 1800’s. Obviously there was some variation in construction details but the basic wagon changed little over the years. This Plan-Set allows for the modeler to also vary details, but build with metal and wood just as they did over 100 years ago. 
Booklet and Plan-Set includes: 9) 13" x 19" super B, 51) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size, pages which include Bill of Materials, 3-D renderings, construction and painting instructions and all details shown full scale to be used as templates.

Buggy - Steel Lumber •••• The prototype for this Lumber Buggy is located at the Crowell Lumber Ind. mill in Longleaf, LA. This saw mill operated into the 1960’s which would make this design appropriate for later operating saw mills. Plan-Set includes: 6) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size sheets with a material list for fine scale brass construction or styrene would be an alternative material.
Buggy - Wood Lumber •••• The prototype for this Lumber Buggy is located at the Rhinelander Logging Museum in Rhinelander, WI which would make it appropriate for saw mills operating at the turn of the century. Plan-Set includes: 4) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size drawing.
Wagon - Mill/Factory Lumber Buggy •••• The name “buggy” as used here is a lumber-mill term. These wagons were used at saw mills, lumber yards, woodworking plants and general farm use. These wagons carried their load balanced over the rear wheels. They were heavy spring-less wagons. The capacity of the one shown in this Plan-Set would have been three tons. Because of the many places where such wagons were used it continued in use many years longer than most types of wagons. Plan-Set includes: 4)  super B size and 2) super A size sheets with a material list and all details shown full scale to be used as templates. 
Booklet and Plan-Set contains: 4) 13" x 19" super B size Plan-Set sheets and 10) super A size sheets with prototype information and construction suggestions with a plan-set on.

Footprint 2 ⅝ʺ x 1 ⅞ʺ. 1) super A size sheet is all that is needed which list suggested materials.
Wagon - Tank •••• Tankers collected lamp oil (kerosene) at the train depot, sold it to shops and peddled it by the gallon to city folk. Also, in the heat of summer they were used to sprinkle dirt roads in a city when the dust became too thick to breath. They were also used for delivering water to residents where wells were not available. Fire fighting for Sawmill and logging operations. Plan-Set ONLY includes: 9) 13" x 19" super B and 2) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size sheets with a material list and all details shown full scale to be used as templates.

Wagon - 1906 Dumper ••••This is a contractor’s suspension body dumping wagon following illustrations in the May 1906, Carriage monthly. These wagons were designed for contractors, especially in cities to cart away refuse, ashes, and garbage. This wagon could carry 3 to 4 tons of anthracite coal. Contractors also used these wagons for road construction hauling earth, sand gravel. (This was an era when earth was worked by men with picks and shovels.) Until coal was readily available these wagons would haul firewood to residents which were often found in sawmill towns near forests. Sawmills also used them to haul slash and sawdust to refuse burners. Mining operations used them to haul ore.
To increase capacity, slanting boards panels are shown as an option in these drawings. These boards can be modeled stationary or removable.
Crossbars and Pillars were mortised through sills to reduce breakage/repairing of the rough handling of these wagons.
Called Dumping Wagons is obvious. (Sometimes referred to as tip carts.) Dumping was accomplished by sticking a robust timber between the spokes of the hind wheel, pulling the Tail Gate rods, rotating the Latching Hook; then a Teamster backing the team unbalancing and dumping the material within the wagon body, dumping the load. Resetting the wagon body was accomplished by reversing the process.
A full-circle fifth-wheel is included which provided greater maneuverability, with the front wheels being low for sharper turning and more accurate placement of material being dumped.
These wagons were pulled by two, sometimes four, heavy draft animals such as Clydesdales, or Ercheron horses.

Wagon - American Flare-Type, Grain-Tight, Farm •••• The “Flare-Type” Wagon is a variation of the boxes found on Farm Wagons. This type of box became popular as the use of mechanical corn pickers became available.

Running gear shown are clipped with bracing at all stress points to avoid breakage and misalignment. The front gear has a large, steel, full-circle fifth wheel, making for a solid unit to prevent tipping and excessive rocking. The hind gear has long hounds to assure “true tracking.” Both front and hind bolsters are “well ironed” (reinforced).

This design has up-and-down tie rods securing the box to the bed. Adjustable chains and rods were used to to prevent the sides from spreading under load. Box ends and sides are cleated and riveted.

1904 Most Improved Express Delivery Wagon •••• Sometimes called a Hitch or Baggage Wagon, or Show Wagons. They were widely used for light city trucking of large parcels and boxes to homes and businesses. These wagons were closely associated with railway shipping carrying trunks and baggage to and from depots. 

Companies took great pride in their Express Delivery Wagons bearing their business name and a magnificent team of horses to pull them. Show wagons were pulled in parades and exhibitions to advertise companies and their products. Today, an astounding number of companies, breeders and draft-horse owners continue this tradition.

Express wagons are one of the most carefully designed and practical, yet beautiful wagons ever built. The spring system, fifth-wheel assembly and ‘cut-under’ front wheels facilitate tight turns and give this wagon flexibility making it ideally suited to the crowded driving conditions in cities during the horse-drawn era. Characteristically they had flared upper side boards and a high driving seat.

This is our most detailed (difficult) wagon to build, but by eliminating some of the smallest details this wagon could easily be built by virtually any modeler.

Plan-Set includes: 11) 13" x 19" super B sheets and 2) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size pages which include material lists. Booklet includes: prototype information construction photos and suggestions with 6) additional 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super A size pages.

Gruber Wagon Works - 1883 to 1910 DVD  •••• Need buildings to show where your American Farm Wagons were built? The factory was located near Keading, Pennsylvania in Berks County, and is an example of a factory that operated at full production through 1910. The drawings show the location of the wood working machinery that were used to manufacturer wagon using the "American System."

This is a very basic DVD of nine (9) drawings, and over 50 photos of the Gruber Wagon Works. Plus over 100 catalog etched cuttings of machines that were available over 100 years ago to manufacture wagons.

The DVD is broken down by folders: Axle • Bolster • Boring • Equalizing • Gruber Wagon Works building drawings • Hounds & Reach • Hub • Mortising • Shafts + Poles + Trees • Spoke • Strap and Wheel.

Wagon - Classic American Buckboard •••• Our easiest wagon to build.

It is distinctively an American vehicle. It was of simple construction (and, the easiest of our wagons to model) meant to be drawn by a horse, mule or other large animal. The “buckboard” is the front-most board on the wagon.

A true buckboard had no metal springs, its suspension comes from the springy boards that make up the floor/body. It has been reported that this springy action was of equal comfort over rough roads, which kept manufacturing costs down. Much of the charm of this ruggedly constructed vehicle is its functional versatility. 

Modeling options included: brakes, boot chest, buggy whip, cushion(s), small stake sides, side steps, even a luggage rack or maybe a lamp or two. A buckboard wagon often had a seat for a driver and a “back seat” for the rest of the family. 
The Buckboard became the economical and versatile “family utility car” of its time for easily going into town and back with the family essentials. They could be found in every 19th century settlement, be it a farm, mine or a Sawmill and logging camps.
Booklet & Plan-Set includes: 6) super B and 20) 9-½ʺ x 13ʺ super size descriptive sheets which includes the Wheel Fixture plan and instructions.
