    I set-up some pallet racks to...
    Get ALL my spare parts organized!!!

    These racks are very affordable.... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif and hold some serious weight. About 4400 lbs. per shelf.

    Here's a pic of my rack:

    Home Depot or Lowes come to mind! They get rid of racks all the time! They sit out back and never get used! If you can get a manager to approve it(cause they sell new ones in the store) you might be able to talk him out of some! Used to work for Home depot, Great shelves, But expensive if bought new! They're called Garrilla Racks! Wish I was still working there, I hear you on the Iraq thing man! 1CAV, 215th FSB!! Hoorah! /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    That's not a bad idea....
    Lowes and Home Depot replace them ALL the time...
    But any Warehouse Business should have'em.....
    I'm in the metal stamping industry....
    Production is down....so we are downsizing our warehouse space.
    I'm sure there are some bussiness' doing the same thing....out by YOU!!! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    We get people "Cold Calling" us to see if we have any to sell...
    and we sell them CHEEP!! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
