  • Material Racks

    Got the call to make a new material rack for PVC pipe in our new fab area. After looking at the area it was going into I came up with this. A material rack that doubles as the material stand for the chop saw I made the material supports for the saw adjustable to account for an unlevel floor.

    Looks good. Ryan will be disappointed that you didn't save the painting for him to do.
    I should build one a little heavier than that but the same general design for steel.

      I'd rather stand behind an abrasive chop saw catching a mouth full of sparks than paint anything. I hate painting. My powder coater loves me.

        I don't like to paint either that rack is POWDERCOATED here's my steel rack made a new one of those with the PVC rack had it powdercoated too. Just finished loading it back up. Used 2 x 3 for the bottom and upright 1 1/2 square for the arms and 1/4 x 2 for the don't fall off the arm tabs.

          PVC rack was only mounted to the floor the steel rack is mounted to the concrete wall at the top of each upright and at the front of each leg. The uprights are also X-Braced together. Don't think it's going anywhere

              That one also looks good. What weight of tube and how long are the arms roughly?

                Now that's interesting you should ask the weight of the tube? Equating that to a tubing wall thickness I'm guessing? Truth be told, the worry is how good is the weld? Or were you thinking it looked heavy? No matter really, long before a tube bends, fractures and breaks, I'm thinking 70psi has to hold something?
                Lol... I like the color. Top marks on adding some vibrant to the shop décor! Most shops know two colors, Either a Blue or a Red and paint it black.

                    Never thought I'd say this, but....hey man, nice rack.

                    That hurt a little. Oli probably uses that phrase all the time.

                      Your assumption is correct, I was looking for the thickness of the tube. We (here) often speak in terms of weight/foot though of a given dimension and we always expect the weld to be good. If the weld fails it is not the fault of the tube is it?

                        what do you think of this rack? they are cantilever shelves made of steel H beams, 3 meters long and 2 meters deep, 1.5 meters long
                        the H ipe 200 beam pillar, the ipe H 120 mm shelves with diagonal reinforcements at T 50 MM

                            Those also look good. I don't think I could afford enough steel to overload them but if I could I'd X-brace them.
