I would like to know how he did that, and also would it hold a Mix-12?

To quote Jenn...

 

The drawer is by SKB.

I place it in top of the extended rack and fasten it with bungie chords. It is too long to be screwed onto the side of the fold-up cart.

I hope you have had better luck with those SKB shelves --- I had two of them and neither of them lasted long enough for me to even put into service. Latches broke, slide mechanisms jammed, plastic breakage in the corners, etc.

Aluminium rack drawers in bottom of Foldup - not me - Eric from Singapore - nicely done Eric.

He attached rack rails to the front uprights and inserted the drawer units. I think he also supported them from the backl.

I have often been asked how to attach an antenna pole to the side of a Foldup cart.

The short answer is by a clamp of some sorts. There is really no place for holders (like Toolflex).

As yo will see from the pictures, One position works, at the rear/bottom 2 shelves. But its really too far down.

The front position gets in the way of the folding mechanism.

However if you don't want to fold it - it's another story.

Nevo.

I never get tired of seeing what people do with my carts.

I can see the logic of your work, I'm impressed.

(I love the monitor brackets)

Thank you for sharing on this page in particular.

Best wishes, Rob

Hi Rob.... I work different jobs but mainly commercials sometimes with a boom op often not . So going from cart to harnessed bag in a short time is important... My other bag is based around a a 633 and SRBs......I love the way I can pull the box out , fold up the cart and be relocating in a matter of just a few minutes.

Being quick and adaptable to whatever situation is the goal..... I love the small footprint of the fold up cart, combined with my 633 and 3x SRB I can handle most scenarios...... I use the 664/venue more on the drama days and will add a extra SRB to give me 2 wireless booms and 6 wires, all out of a bag that I can pull off the cart for insert and cramped space work....works great

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...

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.

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).

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.

Hey Rob.

 

I went with a different approach and underslung the monitors and permanently built them into the top shelf with a patch panel and separate power (NP1) cup built in. My work is no where as neat as yours or what Pete has done but for me a part of the joy is modifying things to suit my unique ways.

 

I'll try post some pics next week. At the moment it is set up in low profile mode for some rough terrain in Lithgow and Bathurst.

 

Your carts are such troopers, from being lugged up and down my 3 story walk up apartment regularly, to beaches, bush tracks, bad car packing days, etc, I have had to do little to no maintenance to it.
