Triton Wood Rack

Just occurred to me that I don’t think I have ever really spoken about the Wood Racks that I use to store timber.  If I have, then even I have forgotten!

I have a couple of Triton Wood Racks, one in the lower shed which is used to store bulk timbers (pine), and one in the main shed for the better timbers.  I actually plan to add an extra set (of two) of the Triton Wood Racks to the main one, so it can cope with all the varying lengths.

There are 6 shelves, each capable of supporting 50kgs. (Of course if I add the extra wood rack in, that will increase overall to 100kg per level, but that isn’t what I need, or intend, just a bonus.

The arms do not have to be evenly spaced as shown – there are predrilled holes with this in mind, but you can choose a different layout.  The holes are simply for small self-tapping screws which stop the arms slipping out of location when they are unloaded.  When loaded with timber, the arms themselves transfer the load into the uprights, rather than the small screws.

The distance between the two uprights is completely your choice during installation, and again in my case, adding a second woodrack will give me great flexibility.

It is certainly possible to make your own wood racks, but I find this system simple, cheap, and strong enough not to bother trying to reinvent the wheel.

Garage Sale tomorrow (Sat 8 Nov)

Been a busy few days getting ready for this one!  Never done a garage sale before, and given how much crap we seem to have accumulated, looks like we should have had one a long time ago!

If you are interested, it is running from 8am to 3pm, in Carrum Downs.  As mentioned before, not prepared to put my address all over this site (because Google crawls it almost daily these days, so it would be permenantly all over the web), but if you drive along Hall Road (particularly at the shopping centre intersection), you’ll start seeing the (colourful) signs (with arrows, and the address).  Don’t follow any of those other boring, handwritten garage sale signs 🙂

There’s even a 2400w Triton Router in the collection, Triton ROS, Router Table, Triton Power Planer (in its GMC colour scheme 🙂 )

Looking forward to it all being over, and all the stuff gone, so make an offer!  So much is going for $1 or $2 anyway.  Anyway, if you say that you are a Stu’s Shed fan you know I’ll look after you!

On the assumption of crowds of people (I wish), I probably won’t be able to give any tours – have to save that for the (extremely belated (aye Glenn)) Stu’s Shed BBQ.
