    Default Introduction

    I've been creeping around the forums for a few months and taking in a lot of information everyone is posting. Thanks to all, I have absorbed a vast amount of knowledge.

    Anyway, I am a Paramedic and we purchased a Liquid O2 transfer machine in September. A few days after we took delivery, some unauthorized person broke a valve on it. The machine cost us $36k and we had to tack on a repair bill. The director hit the roof and asked myself and one of the supervisors if we could build a cage to house the machine and all of our oxygen cylinders. We purchased the mezzanine from Global, stood it and built the cages underneath. We stood the mezzanine in eight hours. It took us four 12+ hour days to complete the cage. We were in a rush to finish because the state was coming for an inspection. We painted the cage with Rustoleum Gray cutting it and using a high-volume gun. It took a little over one gallon for the entire structure.

    Here's the link to my web album. The pics were to large to post here sorry. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks everybody. I guess I should have said that Mike used to be a fabricator for a race team and I learned to weld because I'm to cheap to pay someone to do it. My first welder was a Chicago Electric Mig 110, I know you're all jealous. I know have a MM180. Mike has a MM210, which is what we did the most of the project with.

    Anyway, as requested here I added some pics of the racks and a few others of the cage to the gallery. I could not get them to resize either. Enjoy

    Again, great job! Got a close-up pic of a self-closing hinge? or a website I can look at them? Wondering what the weight capacity is of it also!
    Thanks for the pics

    Bert, we got the hinges at Lowes. I can't remember what the weight capacity is but I do know you can adjust the spring tension. The hinges are made by Stanley.
