I am interested too if you want to make it more worthwhile for an engineer - could you post your pictures so I can see if they would work for me too?

Hi Darren
When you went to see these engineers did you take a wheel with the bearing removed, the transaxle and a picture from here of one of my adaptors?

Simply explaining it to them would probably have put them off, but if you had it in front of them they would then realise machining wise its not a hard thing to do.

i know of one chap who attaches his rear wheels to the scooter transaxle a completely different way. He dismantles the scooter wheel then bolts the sleeve part of it onto the toy lander wheel.

Iv never tried this method so cannot reccomend it but he assures me it works

have a look in my thread - used the tips from Peter.

Hope that helps - you can make the adapters a little longer if you need to push the wheels out a bit, I didnt need too more that about 1cm each side.
