Default Storage For My Drops

It was time to do something about the many drops I have. They were scattered to the four corners of my shop, two of which I had no access to.

All the pieces were had from the scrap yard. The base is a cart that had an A frame fixture attached, I cut the top portion off of that. The storage boxes were two units from an electricians service truck. They are made by Adrian Steel and they bolted up vertically.

For some reason I cannot “Manage Attachments”. Is this system currently not working? Perhaps I will be able to post pictures later.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

I did some drop management a couple weeks back myself. The boy came over with his pickup and cleaned the outer driveway area in front of my shop. I've been collecting busted AR500 scraps and shot up steel pipes for almost 7 years. The side fence was collapsing under the weight once the neighbors moved all the shit off their side, so it was just easiest to let it all go.

Kid scaled 1677# of crap I don't miss at all, and all I seem to have gotten out of it was a fresh scrape where his receiver hitch drug the approach as he was leaving. You can't even tell anything was removed.

Pic to test the manage attachments. Seem to be working on this end.

Attempt at pictures.

The bins at the top were once drawers for a parts bin. They now contain threaded rod from 1/4”- 1 1-4”

I regret being too lazy At the time to add dividers to the bottom of the back side that match the dividers in the middle. They would have kept the rods and bars from leaning too much.

I removed about 100 lbs. and I can’t tell in my little shop.
