What you see on top of it, is a Troyke DMT-18 rotary/cross slide table
(which was not included, I lost my bid to someone else). However,
since this DMT-18 is at least 300-400 lbs if not more, this must be a
quite sturdy cart. It is 36x38" horizontally. It will hopefully solve
a few shop problems at the same time. The cost is $25.
Aren't auctions great?
I bought some carts that size a few years ago. I've loaded mine to about
4000 lbs. The one thing I wish they had was a brake. They tend to get mobile
while I'm trying to move heavy stuff on them.
Yes... I lost approximately 90% of my bids.
This is amazing, I would never think of being able to load them to 4k
lbs. I will bring it home today along with the rest of the stuff.
Just for the record, I didn't say yours would hold that much! I bought mine
from a mold shop. They are properly reinforced, and weigh about 400 lbs
empty. Of course YMMV.
Dave, sure, I understand that, I will see how far mine can go. It also
comes from a mold shop, as far as I understand.
I hope so. Would be great to, say, put a diesel engine on it and work
on the engine this way. Would be very comfortable. I worked with
two engines last fall/winter (Cummins) and would have been a lot more
comfortable with a cart like this.
Dave... The cart exceeded all my expectations, it is extremely
strongly made. I am going to throw away my Office Depot folding table
and replace it with this cart. The top shelf is made with 1/4" steel
sheet, the bottom shelf with 1/8" steel sheet. The casters are not
ideal, though they work, I may replace them with 5"-6" casters. The
welds holding the old casters would need to be ground away. I would
say it weighs about 300 lbs. With better casters, it will move better
and could take 2,000 lbs easily, in my estimation. Maybe more, I
cannot say. I am very happy with it.
The cabinets are also very decent and very deep. if you are local (I
forgot if you mentioned where you are) you could buy them from me for
a discount to prevailing prices, whatever they are.
As far as graphite goes, it is a lot of pieces that look like they
were never submerged in oil and frankly do not look "used", though I
do not know what the telltale signs of having been "used" are. Maybe
200 lbs of various shaped pieces, mostly rectangular.
I also had to pick a lot of garbage and some lots were big
