In an attempt to automate my finishing process, I've long dreamt about picking up an old dry cleaning rack... well thanks to Ebay... It's just the initial mock-up, but check this out.
Is this still woodworking?
Way cool Craig! Amazing what you can find on EBay.
Cool setup! Are you going to set up some type of drip pan after the dip tank?
Very ingenious Craig, very cool.
My diet is working good. I'm down to needing just one chair now.

Yep, that will work
Make a ramp going into your tank as well as leading up to it, or you will get a lot of splash!

That is ingenius to say the least.
just because, I gave you one 5 star rating.
moulder craig! dry cleaners racks are neat.....and might save you tons of time.........but moulders are cool! there ain`t nuthin` like dimming all the lights in a two block area as you fire up all five motors ........good idea on the rack

great ideas and questions...
Stu, a ramp going in...awsome, probably never would've thought of that, just lived with the splash.
Ed, yeah the drip is an issue...it will have to be a long (probably 6 feet or so) thing as the three different sizes seem to be splashing in very different spots.
and Tod, what can I say... you are a very wise man. The moulder is certainly key to the whole operation...i just needed to get to the bottom of a very large (and heavy) pile of iron and steel first. Plus I needed the ego boost from a fun project like this first. Next up... but judging by the wires I ripped out of this place, that pig of a moulder is a spit in the electrical bucket. I have enough power here to jump start the USS Nimitz. I ripped out old 000 guage wires never seen anything like them (ok maybe at the mall ). I figure the previous occupants must have been splitting atoms in here. Look at the size of this stuff.
the panel in the foreground comes from a huge step-down transformer (out of view) just to create 110V. That's a 600 Amp main switch sick.
Enough to power the auto-shaper of my dreams
Great idea, and with a few tweaks it looks like it's gonna work great. I'll bet you were grinning like a kid in a candy store when you first fired it up.
And on the power supply to your shop, this is me, green with envy. --->
