    Simple Table Rack/Cart

    Needed a cart to hold some tables that we use at a Farmers Market every weekend. We provide tables and canopies for vendors who dont have their own and I have to set up and break down every Sunday. I was tired of moving tables from two small flat rolling carts.

    * I'll switch out the hard wheel casters for some pneumatic ones since the terrain is asphalt.

    Looks nice. How is the weight distribution? Are they "tippy" at all?

    I was concerned about the weight and tippy-ness but the weight is fine and not tippy but those plastic tables are slippery things so one little bump and they want to slide.

    I have to get it over a piece of metal that a sliding gate rolls on on and up a small ramp into a shipping container on site.

    I'll have to add some hooks so I can attach a bungee to the opening. Once I get the pneumatic wheels on it, it should drive a little smoother.

    Down the center I have to load a 3 compartment sink with an instant water heater (City rules since we also sell food)

    Luckily we use a church parking lot which has a clean-out readily accessible - so I can use it for the sink drain.

    Seventh-day Adventist Church- they have services on Saturday so we get to use it on Sundays.

    The FM is also a community outreach source, not just a a basic Farmer's Market.

    Healthy eating, low income outreach with matching dollars for people to spend on fresh food rather than 7-11.

    Bonzoo,

    Don't need a drywall cart.

    Plus I had all the steel here in the shop, left over from other projects.

    I'll put pneumatic tires on it- I hate getting jacked by stuff on the pavement.

    Looks like a couple of bungees and softer tires would do it. Those 'never go flat' tires too expensive maybe? Dunno.

    In general the Run Flat tire/casters are mo' money but I think I have some hangers and I'll just order the tires only.

    Mixed blessing with those because if they sit too long they'll get a flat spot.

    It might would have been a better idea to have the open side of the shelf they sit on slightly higher than the rest. If they slide it will be to the back away from the opening. Maybe you can go back & slope it some to make it work better for you.
