As I was building the metal pallets, a friend of mine made a great suggestion. He talked about adding steel mesh to one or more pallets to store small cut off pieces. Today I went and got the material to do it. Here it goes! 🙂
I wanted to recess the mesh panels into the frame instead of just welding the whole sheet straight on top. I had some cut off pieces from the square tubing and welded small pieces of 3/8″ to them. This is a close up of one of the three fixtures I made.
Here I am clamping the angle to those little fixtures to tack weld them to the metal pallet.
All the angles are welded in place. Now the cutting of all the mesh panels is my next step.
Pretty easy, but messy, cutting all the pieces with my angle grinder. All welded up and ready to go back into the rack.
Here it is with a couple of old cut off pieces of plate. I hope I can keep it organized when I start cutting parts with my CNC plasma table.
