Wing Rack on wheels

Postby planecrazzzy » Thu Apr 02, 2020 3:06 pm

I have seen a lot of wing storage racks ...
I didn't like the looks of "storing" some of the creations after the wings were on the plane .
Some of that stuff was as big as a piano .
.
I had an old busted furniture moving cart ,
I patched it while fabricating a tube frame ...Hmmmm , done

Oh, I screwed on a couple of dowels , and put some duct tape to protect the wings from hanger rash
.
I have had TWO sets of wings on it AT THE SAME TIME .
Yet, when it sits alone ...well, it's a furniture mover size , and rolls out of the way.
In this picture , both "SETS" were on the wing rack , which also was storing a lexan sheet
and still rolled around .

The Wings are Kolb Firestar II and a Wittman Buttercup

I'll find better pictures

Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...

More crowded pictures ....
With the wings on wheels .
I can move them close to something to get more room.

I still use this cart...

It still looks just as crappy ,
Still does a great job of holding my wings without damaging them
Rolls right up to the spot where you have the wing....rolls it away
It's easy to throw a couple of things on it while it isn't holding Wings.

Still looking for more pix
