Found this on an inspection. The crew installing forklift guide cabling made a wire cart.

That's very inventive. I want one!

Big wheels, comfortable grips, and brakes.

With some extra rows of shafts, I can just imagine how many rolls of #12 it would hold.

That's pretty good there, John.
When I first saw it, I thought it was a wheel-chair for elderly electricians. cool

That is a bloody good idea though, it seems the world is hell-bent on just throwing stuff in the trash after it's useful life has "ended", where we no longer fix stuff, just get it out of our sight.

I've grown up with the idea that there is no such thing as junk, there is such a thing as "junque", stuff that will come in handy at some time in the future, just not at the moment.

Don't get me wrong, I am in no way a hoarder (although my wife has different ideas on that one), there are some things that need to be saved from the trash can. whistle

Interesting that moving this pic here got two comments in a few hours. It was in the photo gallery (still is) and was very quiet.

Now, after all these years, I may have this pic posting down!!

My house is an ode to recycling. It is hard to find much of anything I built when my wife was building houses that doesn't include something I got out of a dumpster.

It always amazed me what they threw away.

John,

What do they always say, "One man's trash is another man's treasure!" smile

Looks like it is working well with those guys.
