    Default My 3 Way Flip CArt

    Hi guys,
    I hope this is the right place for these pics.
    This is my 3 way flip cart, I am struggling for space in my shed so needed to economize on the space and built a 3 way cart. most of it is reclaimed wood and cheap pieces from salvage stores.

    Inside the table is a 4 way powerboard with the 3 machines plugged into it and that means only 1 lead and plug coming out.

    Good work, but it looks to me like you have heaps of room in your shed - lots of floor space still showing

    The photo's are a little deceptive in regards to how much room there is, but as long as I can get to the fridge all is good

    Yep, it's important to have access to the coolant during this warm weather .

    That's a clever design and looks like it wouldn't be too expensive to make.

    Thats a clever design. Keeps the center of gravity low for stability with 2 down and 1 up. Be a great space saver. Very well done.
    Regards

    Thank you Bob, It was pretty cheap, The side panels were from a sale of MDF through Gumtree, the 50 x 100 side support beams were given to me by the guys who installed our Aluminium Windows, they had it left over and gave it to me, the base was from some reclaimed plywood from pallets from a reclamation yard that sells all sorts of reclaimed wood. The locks were from the Wish website for about $8 for a pack of 8, the wheels were from Bunnings, about $3.50 each,I had the Galv pipe from an old gate I was given and the power point I got from a salvage yard for $4.00, In all I got out of it for about $50
