Build your own Mini Dolly 4
It took me a couple of months but I finally gathered all the receipts from our Mini Dolly project. I was shocked to find out that it actually wasn’t as pricey as I thought it was going to be. Well, mostly because we had most of the tools already, but more importantly we had the head. The head would have been an additional $150, even more if you wanted to purchase a different head. Also I did not have a time clock where I could punch in my hours of time I spent drawing, working and driving, so man hours are just a guesstimate. But nevertheless, here it is broken up into categories.
Misc Parts/Paint $94.00
Additional Misc Tools $106.00
Skate Wheels $30.00
Man Hours: 30
Trips to Lowe’s: 17
Oh and by the way for the platform I purchased a 2 foot by 4 foot piece of MDF again at Lowe’s and it was $8. You will need some shims to level it out on different surfaces. If you want to bring it off the ground a little bit I found apple boxes work get. If you really want to get it off the ground use two C-Stands and 2 CardelliniClamp’s™, mount the MDF and the sky is the limit.
Here are links to the blueprint and wheel stickers that I used:
