Sheet Metal Trolly / Dolly

Post by Copp3r » Wed May 15, 2013 2:03 pm

Hey Guys !!!

Up until now I've kept my sheet metal off to on side of the shop and I'm now debating making some form of a trolly / dolly that can stack various sizes of 4x8 on edge. (say 10,12, 14, 16 & 18 Gauge)

Just wondering what if anything is being used out there? I've got a couple of ideas but why re-invent the wheel is someone has a working model.

Any pics / input would be GREATLY appreciated !!!

Cheers,

Copp3r / roger

I think this has been a topic of conversation in the past, but to answer your question, I have made and use a rack to hold my steel on edge. Think of a letter holder you might have on your desk. There is the base, and uprights. Between the left and right uprights, is your steel. I use an engine hoist to select one sheet, then move it to my table. Bob.
