  1. This could be me & my foldup cart...

    Hello Nate. What you have done is brilliant, I can see your lateral mind working overtime. Thank you for posting those pics. not just for others to see, but for me too. I am very impressed. Re the lucky dice valve caps, I try to include one of these and one of these on (most) of my carts, because I can. Best, Rob
  2. New audiophile (?) portable reel-to-reel recorder coming?

    Oh Lordy. Its so beautiful I don't think I would care whether it was better or worse than whatever. Mind you I am probably still back in the 80's...
  3. RastOrder RMC Cart

    RMC 6 is a bit of a departure from my normal setups. Just experimenting here. Still kept the 2 modules - lets call it - Variant BM2/TM2. Went for these 7 inch castors on the front. They don't have brakes so I added some wheelchair brakes on the 20 inch wheels. Top module has no sliding shelves, just 2 fixed shelves bolted together. I have added a second rack strip about 200mm in to allow for stepped setups & monitors out of sunlight. On the rear I have added upside down handles with Rotocastor Omni directional castors. https://www.rotacaster.com.au/ I prefer side handles as they keep the rear free for attaching anything. Much the same as I always avoid having a full length wheel axle in the bottom, wasting space. The handles are well attached.
  4. Freight rates & other things

    RastOrder is having a half price freight discount promotion for December 2017 & January 2018. We will be open through the Australian Christmas holiday period. (Maybe a week off between 25th and 30th Dec 2017)

    Thank you Nate, I would like to see what you did. I try to please everybody, but its impossible... So I like to see how my carts are adapted by users.

    These dual monitor brackets for the foldup seem to be breeding. Everyone's making them except me... Pete has just come up with another fine solution. Nice one.

    Thanks Kristian. Seems your not so bad at making things either.

    Hi Derek. The rear upright bars are 25 x 25 mm square tube with 3mm wall thickness. The socket on the top removable half shelf also has 3mm wall thickness and is strongly welded. You would need to be conservative in the amount of weight you put on it. I think the thing to watch is that excessive weight might bend the rear upright outwards. Thereby making the uprights too wide to fit the top half shelf back on. If you get my drift. In which case you might have to bend it back - either using the said top half shelf or a rubber hammer (lightly). Rob

    If the top half shelf gets in the road you can take it off - or move it.

    By the way - CJ has gone and bought his own Foldup - Must have liked it. If you need a bigger landing pad for your mixer bag. Top 2 folding shelves can be swapped.
  11. Which Schoeps mics for documentaries?

    People often take a breath before they talk. People often nod their head back & forth a bit when they want to but in. I'd be practicing your booming techniques & hopefully you will work with a shooter who understand fluidity of frame lines. A wider pattern will make it easier to cover a wider area without going off mic. A narrower pattern will generally give you more reach. Me - had 2 416's & 2 816"s till I fell in love with a Sanken CS3.
  12. I found myself doing this a fair few times over the course of my career, mostly with mobile camera people. Always used a line level Comtek, often out of the headphone output on the board, which was often not being used. Comtek frequency never bothered my wireless link to camera.
  13. Quick release wheels - 16" & 20" now available from RastOrder as an accessory. See http://www.rastorder.com.au/otherproduct.htm Axle bush thread length is 38mm & thickness is 18mm.

    Stephen Cabana just bought Foldup 126. Still amazes me how many work-flow setups people do on this cart, Stephens shown me another. Oh and that's boom op CJ sitting at the cart, reading a script...
