At the house I like to do most of mt GT work in the garage, but lately I have too much stuff with yo put away and have room to work also. So I picked up a couple Cookie sheets or Bread racks with casters on them. I cut plywood to fit the racks and I can slide the plywood in and out to make different height shelves. One has 16" X 24" shelves and the other is 18" X 24". I can almost put all the parts from a Gt I'm restoring on one of these units. I can also park these right against the fixed shelves on the walls and pull out of the way when I need to get to those shelves behind them.

Hmmm. Two good ideas today. This and while I was watching a home improvement program they showed a way to hang peg board so you could use both sides, something like the poster rack at Wal-Mart.

I saw that before and forgot about that, it's a great way to hang twice as much on one board. Thanks Larry.

Brain those rack are a great idea for  the garage :thumbs:  I like the way they can be moved against the wall when not needed , turned to get the parts on the other side  , adjustable shelves  so large items can be put on if needed

Good idea Brian. There's never enough wall space, and much of it isn't used regularly.

I gotta keep my eye open for a couple of them.

Just a thought, but you might find that plywood sagging when it gets to be 120 degrees

in the garage. Maybe screw a piece of 1 x 2 strapping, standing up, on the ends.

Plus then you can also label with tape and a sharpie, what's on the shelves. That'll just make

it easier to find things, as you get older.

Good Idea Brian.  I have a couple of friends who deliver bread so I may have to check with them to see if they have access to any racks.

In the next little town over from our shop a friend of mine works for a meat processing plant and he buys and sells food processing equipment. he buys whole lots of stuff out of plants closing down and we buy equipment from him for our plant. He had these in his lay down yard and bought them off him cheap. He is going to find me a few more of them. I can only get the ones that are damaged, as they use the good ones themselves.
