Hi guys,

I got the project to ''transform'' my western dolly into a ''crab-able'' dolly.

I mean, make the back 2 wheels to a direction and the 2 front wheels into the opposite direction, so it can make thight turns...

Just want to know if anybody has made it before ? Or at least, ever sees it?

Thanks for the reply!

You're making what I think would be called a "tracking cart". You might search for materials handling carts or nursery carts. If you're lucky, they'll have a photo showing the linkage under the cart itself.
