Microwizard Crate Build

Post by mclewis_13 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 7:19 pm

Just finished putting together the crate as designed for the 4 lane microwizard track. Boys were eager to help and I guess I needed to have my patience stretched. Next we get to put together the track for the first time.

Y'all did a good job! :bigups:

I added casters to my crate to make it easier to move around. It is amazing how heavy all that aluminum is. Seems to get heavier every year. :whew:

BTW, to get the images to show up, you can copy the BBCode from imgur and paste it right into your post.

Code: Select all

Love the build.
Would love some dimensions and/or plans.
A material list and/or links to your materials (especially the hardware) would be great!

Randy,
Is yours a Best Track?
Any pics and/or plans?

Look like he used the Micro Wizard plans, which are available on their website.

I used those same plans for my Freedom track. I did make it slightly wider (about 1/4") to make it easier to put loops of rope over the sections for getting them in and out of the crate.

Best Track has a similar crate that they have plans for on their website. Though, it is a much bigger crate due to the taller extrusion and machine bent curve.
