    Before now I've been in trouble for washing my dirty hands in the bathroom basin. I was completely unaware that basin was only for hands that were already clean.

    I now go through the de-contamination room (outside toilet and hand basin) before being allowed in the house .

    Not sure if you have thought of going this way. Not quite the height your after but a good price.

    http://www.graysonline.com/lot/0055-...x-w3040mm-x-d8

    There's usually a lot more.

    Dexion racking is superb stuff with variable shelf heights. Recommended. However, with Graysonline remember to factor in 12 1/2% buyers premium and GST on top of everything

    Why are you washing them in the first place?

    Sure is!
    The tote bins seem to have an oily film on them that makes it very hard to clean them. The other MAGIC use of the dishwasher is to clean my HVLP spray gun after use. As I don't have a safe place to spray, I only use water based finishes and the dishwasher does a lovely job

    Thanks Shane,
    that is MUCH cheaper than l have previously seen for second hand racking! I'm going to have to overcome my aversion to online auctions ..... and eBay..... and Facebook?

    When Shane first advised us of this auction it was at it's starting price of $9. Just a moment ago it was up to $39 ($48 after BP and GST). Still over four days to run. I would expect at least $150 when the hammer comes down. Still a good buy at that price. Assembled and ready to load up with years of magazines within about 10 minutes .

    l
    Paul your right that these auctions can get out of hand at times, but I have also seen these sell for under $100 for anywhere up to 4 or 5 sections.

    The possible price of that Dexion racking has really opened my eyes. I have been an occasional user of eBay but really have shied away from the other online auction houses such as Grays, although I often do a group buy for wine with a mate pushing the buttons.
    My 'benchmark' for racking WAS about $360 for a bay of Dexion VS $199 for a 2 X 2 metre bay of adjustable steel shelving from a mates shop in Bowral VS $80 material only for 'agricultural' shelving?
    As I am in a position of not needing to pay for my own time, I probably will be better off to make the agricultural shelving customised to my own needs BUT if I could have purchased (say) 3 bays of Dexion for (say) $500, l would have been better off AND looked a tad more 'professional'?
    I made another bay of 'agricultural' today......

    .... but both of these bays will have at least another shelf when complete. The bottom 2 shelves, which will continue the full 6 metres of the wall, are for long goods and the gap between the bays, and above the bottom 2 shelves, will store some smaller sheet goods.
    I have finished painting the doors .....

    image.jpg

    and will now go and take a second mortgage to pay for tempered glass!
    I reckon it will take another 2 or 3 weeks, including remaining a husband, father, grandfather and mate, to get the shed back into production.
    I am happy with how it sits on the block ....

    but I can't wait to get back to real woodwork.
