Roof Rod Rack

Postby Snow » Mon Mar 06, 2017 9:06 pm

Since getting a stink boat I now have something to stand in to get rods down from the roof of my 3 metre high garage. Made a template then built the two halves.
Two left over pieces of decking 1600mm long, another piece if 50 x 50 aluminium angle cut into 8 bits for brackets, a 65 mm holesaw, a radius edge bit and a router + 2 hours of stuffing around in the shed.
End product holds 20 rods :gu:

Hey Pavo I have an offcut of this that you can have to use as a template?
Give me a call mate and you can pick it up anytime
