Default New Platform

I just finished a new platform for my Deutz Otto four hp E12 made in 1912. It has four 8"cast wheels under the corners for moving on the concrete floor and will use plywood at shows if a hard surface is not available. Four inch square tubing and heavy channel across under each end of the engine with angle iron around to bolt the oak planking to. It had nice oak skids but i wanted to make a more pleasing display for the 105 year old engine as i thought it deserved.
