    Default Materials Rack

    Well, I finally grew tired of storing all my scrap material on the ground, table, against the wall... you get the idea.

    I've never had a proper materials rack (just like I've never really had a proper MIG cart), so... instead of running all that rusty steel to the recycling center (an event that obviously was NEVER going to happen), I turned it into something useful. Check out the big brain on Chris. I really just wanted to say, "Nice rack."

    This cart was made entirely of things I was tripping over every day in the shop.

    1) Had this formed cart, complete with locking castors. On the cart is basically my version of a "plan." Hmm.. I'll use tubing and all those short lengths of 3/8" round stainless rod I have left over from a previous project. Make it work.

    2) Had the 1" x .120 square tubing; bent it up like so.

    3) I think this thing's gonna work. Zipped it up zing-bang! Where'd I put that can o' spray paint?

    4) Loaded.

    5) Another view.

    I wish I had a picture of the mess of metal to emphasize just how much this little rack has helped me out. But I don't.

    Thanks for looking.
