ID:	10541Having a need for a steel rack I came up with the one pictured. I set it up with an aisle in the center at 3 1/2" wide to hold 4x8 sheets of stock and smaller. I also made it with a combo of shelves and arms for steel over 5' in length. the wheels are rated at 600lbs each and are all swiveling. the unit is 5' long and 23 1/2" wide. the shelves are 10" wide stair treads(channel). The frame is mig welded 1x2x11ga. (120 mild steel). I made it narrow so that it goes through my 30" door. All of my shafting and plate stock will be put at the bottom to aid its stability. Hope you can use it for ideas.
