    Advice on wheel dollies

    Morning All

    I'm looking at purchasing wheel dollies for the cob to manoeuvre out from the wall to work on.

    Does anyone have any experience of these and is there a company that builds them to run under both wheels instead of just one ie to push the cob closure to the wall?

    cheers

    I have 4 you can borrow with pleasure. Home made and they work a treat. Issue is I live in Newark Notts and they are quite heavy so shipping may be costly. Site will not let me adda picture no matter what the size! If you pm me your email I will send pics.

    You can get a set of 4 from SGS Engineering, inc shipping - see here:

    they are very good quality, i have 4 myself and can definitely vouch for them. Had them for 3-4 yrs or so now and have been a godsend

    Thanks Gents

    I will only need a pair...future thoughts when the cob is complete is to drive nose into the corner of the garage and then lift the rear and tuck her away for the next run leaving enough room for the tin top to park up alongside.

    That was my thoughts on having one that would reach right through and lift both rear wheels ala fork lift.

    Fix a bracket in the centre with a recess to match a trolley jack and you can jack then push the back end over?

    That's kinda what I'm doing now but it's a bit of a faff lining the jack up all the time so wanted something to just kick under the tyres and haul in and out

    I can also vouch for the SGS dollies. Good quality at a very reasonable price. They also sell them in pairs...

    I have a very similar looking set albeit from Clarks i think - bought 2nd hand.
    They can be quite handy, but for moving car about you need:
    (a) a nice smooth garage floor such as polished concrete, and devoid of small pot holes, and
    (b) you need to kick the wheels round in the right direction - with a 1000kg car on them, they wont swivel easily like a shopping trolley.

    I have actually used them more for moving furniture, kitchen worktops and other heavy stuff than actually useful for moving the car!

    Agree about the smooth floor, one of mine has a Magnette engine on it at the moment!

    That's the trouble with you Sailors, long hair, quick zips and, Oohh, look at the size of that!!

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    I'm also looking for a set but the hydraulic ones that you slide either side of the wheels and them pump up removing the need for a jack -
