Simple, one day rolling rack/mixer stand build.

Built a super basic rolling mixer stand/10U slanted rack today. Figured I would post it up as an example.

It uses a pair of Gator 12U rack rails, four 4ft perforated angle irons, a few short pieces of perforated flat stock, and four 2" casters. Also a lot of use of the angle grinder with a cutting disk. Went together in 3 or 4 hours.

Rails with some patch bays to set the spacing.

All the parts needed.

Getting the spacing right.

I made the base square. Seems to have worked well with the tilt back and length of my mixer.

Brought it into my space that I am setting up to check the lay back of the rack. Needed some adjustments to get to where I was happy.

And the finished rack. The equipment forms a structural part of it.

First piece in. Need to decide what all is going where now that I finally have a space I can set up as a control/mixing room. Also need to find the rack ears for my mixer that went... somewhere, during my move.

And racked up a bunch of stuff to try it out. I could not find the rack ears, so just used some brackets from lowes, but it looks good.

I need to add a base plate of some sort so the cables don't fall through.
