Default I built a part cooling rack.

I saw a listing on Market place angle iron they recovered from an old building.
It was listed for $5 and I bought it. It had a couple 1/4" 7' pieces and a few other smaller pieces.

I have been needing a new cooling rack for powder coated parts.
I used a couple old rotors from my Tahoe they are very heavy and will keep the rack from falling over when loading.



The steps are 1/4" steel and take a while to cool. A lot of the other parts are 1/8" and cool much faster.

I also built some more cooking racks with rebar and expanded metal.
Now I have 4 places for parts to cool and 5 cooking racks.

It is always fun to use stuff that would go to the landfill to make useful stuff.
Keeping cost down always helps.

Great reuse of materials.

My cooling rack holding at least 150 pounds no problem.
