Love the electric bike. Where you get it and what do they weigh?
6 legs of angle, 6 strips 3" flat stock, balance of expanded steel, and the lid is 1/16" sheet on rollers = about 144# belive it or not. NOT like the 4000lb shop table I just made out of 1" because I can
! Good thing about an iron mine is lots of scrap steel, scales, and industrial machine shops. But, now my tools, welder/gennie, torch will live in security. Powder coating will be a lux addition, but again we have a powder shop too so it won't look to goofy. Aluminum would be fab but we don't have any laying around, and, in my humble opinion, a plastic jobbie wouldn't keep my crap safe in some "campgrounds". We'll come in at 380# designed load giving me 20 whole lbs to fill up with tools!
