Anyone have any good ideas for a sheet metal storage rack. I've seen alot of them, but never one that knocked my socks off...
Pictures are good!
Well, it won't "knock your socks off", but I built a material handling rack where I balanced the sheetmetal on one side against the typical long stock on the other. Put it all on castors so I could roll it around in my shop as needed.
It isn't much, but it works great and its all mine.
You can see pics at the link below:
I probably won't ever need one of those, simply because i could never afford to fill it up!
Well, I certainly can relate to that.....
I've been buying stock a little at a time and its slowly building up... Steel is super expensive these days. I pick up every junk trailer an/or piece of scrap I can find as well.
I like your design alot. That would work out well for our HS shop!
IF I had it to do it over, I'd probably put little bigger castors on it. It works fine as is with the smaller ones, but a larger set would help for easier rolling thru a door threshold, rough areas, etc....
Very cool, defiantly goind to build one of those. What are those casters rated for?
Not sure....I just went to Home Depot or Lowe's and picked up some small all-steel castors. I would guess they're probably 200# rating....maybe a tad less. Going to a larger set would obviously increase the rating.
