Exactly what I thought after I was all done and stood back and looked it over. I have the material so expect it will be the next upgrade. Sure would be nice if I had a shear, instead of the torch to cut the expanded metal. 17F here this morning, so have to wait till the next heat wave.

The other day, 17 would have been a heat wave for us. we had 0 and the wind howling. But now its like 50 out and our snow is melting. I need to do a rack myself. Mine's going to be vertical and inside the garage.

I do need an inside rack too for 4' and less stuff. Planning on getting some PVC sections at 3', 2' and 1' attached vertical to the wall with pipe strapping. That will go next to the band saw.The little tray under the saw is packed full of cutoff pieces.

Seems like it never stops coming up with ways to keep shit organized.

Was nice today so got the back side expanded metal cut and welded in. Stacked the stuff I threw off to do the work on the rack. Happy with the results. Next have to do something with the other rack in the last pic that has pipe on it. Same problem with small stuff staying in the rack.

That will be a nice addition, especially when the inventory is whatever you can salvage etc.

Like well, I could use some for this, but if I do then I'll need it for this and be short. but when I get to the " I could use some for this" then I'm rite back at square one where I started in the thought prosses of what I can use it for

Clamp a piece of flat bar to it for a straight edge and use a zip-cutter--way faster (and cleaner) than using a torch...

I did start using a cut off wheel. Cut for a foot and decided it was too slow. Switched to the torch and speed of cut improved by twice as fast.
