My GF will live in the garage but it will have to be on a cart. Has anyone found a good, inexpensive, flat-topped utility cart that will do the job? Everything I have found which is big enough is also stupid expensive.
Yes, in the GF portability topic. You could search this, I don’t have the link handy. - Rich
Here is a thread that people posted a few of there tables, several of which are carts.
If you need a sturdy and rugged industrial table and have the budget try ULINE.com:
There are packing tables that can have castors added to the legs to make them portable.
You could also make your own from wire shelving bits by Global Industrial. A quick look through their catalog suggests about $100 for a 36x24 cart including casters. (I might do that except it doesn’t fit my use case at all.
Check local restaurant auctions for cheap stainless steel tables. Can get some amazing deals!
I have one of these 24x36 Steel Service Carts from Harbor Freight that I got a while back for less than $50 that I’m hoping will work well.
Edit: I realize that I’ll probably have to put a top on it.
Another option is to hack any cheap, sturdy table with some decent-quality casters. I used these from Home Depot and some IKEA parts to make a great standing desk a few years ago. I still love and use it pretty much every day. They’re $12 each.
I have that exact same cart for my glowforge. I assembled the top portion upside down and but a piece of plywood on top. If harbor freight also has locking casters for cheap and a 20-25% off coupons.
Lowe’s home improvement has several types of utility carts.
Check with some school supply companies. They have loads of different carts. Mine is an av cart from a closed school. Check out the fit. It’s magic.
Pre-Release Glowforge: delivery, unboxing, setup, first prints! :glowforge:
look at ULine.com…just got one from them for $179.00 with shipping.
guess I was a little late, but ok,I like mine.
I got the flat top, it is 40+ inches long with handle and wide enough for the GF.
Would you mind posting a link to the one you got so we can have a look at the specs? I still haven’t decided what I’m going to use and I just ordered two more pieces of equipment that will also need stands and one of those will need to be on wheels. Thanks!
You’re welcome Sir !..(notice the correct spelling of you’re )…lol
