I like bread, no butter, no toasting, just bread, and industrial looking stuff, like diamond plate and angle iron bracing. I was working, mowing lawns and the house across had this industrial sized "breadbox" at the curb, no key for the lock. (I'm going to use an old 60's VW chrome lock core in the black housing. It was made with mounting holes that show enough wear to know it was on a wall at one point. It has slots for book end/dividers, but those are missing. I might make some one of these days. The handle came off an old BBQ. The custom manufacture receipt says it was 1 of 1 produced, not too long ago. The hydraulics are still in good shape and covered so stuff doesn't snag on them. The wood wasn't even scratched up. I 'm curious what it was commissioned for, and why it got discarded so soon. I saw this and loved it, couldn't stop thinking about it, but needed an excuse to bring it home. I had records stacked on chairs, and against walls and really needed something to put them in. It seemed about the right height so I went back with a record, the interior is only slightly taller than a 33 jacket. They slide in and out easily as long as you don't try to tilt them. It is over half full now.vinyl master wrote: ↑06 May 2019 06:38Now, scrapjack, THAT'S using the old needle...er...noodle! :wink:
What, pray tell, would have possessed you to consider using something like this to store records in? :-k
And second of all, WHERE did you find this monstrosity and how heavy is it? I like it VERY MUCH! :mrgreen: =D>
It's such a cool thing I'm...I'm...at a loss for words! 8) :D
It is all thin welded square channel and sheet metal, so even at 4 feet long, it's very light. If it weren't so large it'd be easy to move by myself. I needed help moving it to it's general spot, but then I was able to center it myself once there.
