  • sheet metal storage rack

    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!

    Thanks.

    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.

        I probably won't ever need one of those, simply because i could never afford to fill it up!
        Save our species! Lower metal prices!

          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.

            Appreciate that.....
            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....

                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.
