Kiln Cart Ideas
« on: February 10, 2006, 10:03:04 PM »
Anyone build their own kiln cart that has photos to share?   I'm beginning to think seriously about making a cart for the new mill.    When I think about wheels and such, I keep thinking how much vertical height I'll loose.   For every inch of cart height I have, I'll loose almost 80 bf of drying space. 

I'm also wondering what you do for tracks.  I was thinking angle iron fastened to the floor to keep the steel wheels from tearing up the wood.
