All stainless steel and aluminum hardware, handle folds to fit in my car.

All invested, maybe 30 bucks.

Low end cost is a good reason to make a cart. I have wanted too but now I have a Vertex angler Bag modified for disc golf with a soft stroller cup holder to have a second bottle holder, first is the dry stuff sack. I could add a set of larger training wheels to the metal frame and a handle with pole to the top that folds down. I have thought about it to save energy carrying a bag that without the discs weighs 7.5 pounds.

very similar. How many discs does your file box carry. Great job

Somebody at work got a new push cart for Christmas so he gave me his old pull cart. It's an ancient, bare bones 2-wheeler with goofy foam wheels. I'd like to convert it for DG but I have a question about the wheels. It doesn't have a wheel to wheel axle but rather they pop out of separate blocks where you push a button and they release on their own little bearings. How much trouble would it be to convert these into say, jogging cart sized wheels?

My jogging stroller has wheels that pop in like that. Several bike trailers also do, so might be able to find something that route. I like 20" wheels if you have the option. Smoother, easier to push over ruts, and much better tire and tube selection.

My winter setup. That's my first ace of the year in the basket.

I've found that the fixed wheel is easier to "single track" wheelbarrow style over tough terrain, I've had both the BOB sport utility(Fixed wheel) and the BOB revolution(Swivel wheel), the swivel wheel is easier to maneuver on flat ground, but the "tracking knob" broke after a couple dozen rounds. I've got over 200 rounds on my sport utility with very little issues.
