Factory Cart Addition

We are starting to fabricate a line of oversized floor mirrors and ran into another handling issue. How were we going to receive the large sheets of mirror and glass and how were we going to store them safely? We needed a way to receive the massive sheets of mirrors from street level and store them in a way not to compromise them. The solution needed to be tall and mobile. Sounds easy enough, right?  

The first thought was to build a secondary factory cart. Instead, we decided to add to the existing one. The addition would consist of an A-frame that could be lifted on and off the factory cart when needed by forklift. Ken constructed the A-frame with welded steel that provides the mirrors and glass with superior security.

Now we get to fabricate the line of oversized, reclaimed mirrors. Stay tuned to see how they turn out.
