    Nice job, looks the buisness, does the job, I'm tempted to copy but knowing my luck I'd loose the bloody lathe as well, the local heroes would tow it!, lol

      Nice job on the skates. I may build something like that myself. Thanks for posting it.

        Very neat idea, like it. I've used these corner movers (http://www.workshopping.co.uk/produc...overs-4pc/CM4/) to move similar, however the set I borrowed were modded with a angle iron post welded into the corner of the cutout, so the could be either clamped to the load or a ratchet strap put round them.

        There's a tale involving them, a large workbench, a canvassing MP and me discovering that the garage floor sloped toward the door......

            That looks like a great design and build. I like space saving things too.

            You forgot to mention the storage space for the pry bar is small too.

            Be careful using it.

              That looks incredibly stout. I like it. It is worth considering as a permanent but moveable platform.

                You should get some kind of Award for designing that.
                And a Trophy for building it!!
