Wood frame building.

Postby parahandy 15 » Wed Oct 13, 2021 5:30 pm

Having a bit of a respite from all this welding...

I have begun to make replacement woodwork for the traveller,and planned to use the plans from the net
by Alexander Posch.
I found the plans somewhere on this forum ,but can't find them again otherwise would include a link. :(
They are are in German they can easily be translated using a translation programme, however I have found them not to be very accurate as the sizes given vary a great deal from the actual sizes of the existing woodwork on the car,which although pretty rotten in places can still be used to take sizes.

I think that there is also a serious mistake in the drawing of the centre wheel arch wood, (drawing #7) which shows the rebate for the small vertical piece (drawing #8) on the outside face of the arch,Surely this is incorrect?

I would be interested if anyone else has used these plans and can comment.

No... look again you will find AFA 464 fits on an inner face rebate.... the wheel arch top section curves the opposite way than you would expect which may be confusing you?

The Proper original BMC full plans are readily available online free or for a small fee

The other morris site had them in their downloadable documents.

Here is one page

Thanks Panky, it definitely is confusing.Obviously I realise that the rebate is on the inner face,but looking at the plan it does appear to be on the outside.
Luckily I haven't cut the rebate out yet as I can leave it till later.
I have the BMC plans, but they are very hard to interprete as there are bits repaired with sellotape which hides the measurements somewhat.
Thanks for the reply, any advice welcome :D
