Sheet mover

Post by SeanP » Sat Mar 08, 2014 2:52 pm

Just thought I would share how I move sheets around the shop, it seems to work well for me, I can move a 3mm 8'x 4' around with ease.
I cut down the base plate on the sack truck to 1'' wide and added the frame with a piece of wood across for grip.

Good idea. What's the thickest you dare to move with that setup in a 4x8 sheet?

Thanks for that Sean,

sometimes the simplest ideas are the hardest to think of. I'm useless at thinking of simple solutions.

I can't use that idea at present because I load my table end on, no access anywhere else, but that trolley idea can be applied to just about anything, good one.

Just thought I would add to this,,,the next step after the sack truck mod,,,,it's taken me a while to think how to do it but think it will do the trick, loaded 3 x 3mm sheets together (8' x 4') and it passed.

Video here will explain all :P
