$10 Gear Locker

The company I work for is getting rid of a bunch of surplus items that have been stored in various warehouses for years.

I picked up a 6' 6" steel double-door cabinet yesterday and decided to clean it up and make a motorcycle storage/gear locker out of it.

Not bad for $10. All I had to do was dust it off, degrease a few shelves, remove a few Motorola stickers, then add a few stickers of my own. I have two more shelves for it, but nowhere to put them.

nice setup. I'd kill to be allowed to have something like that in the parking garage. I hate lugging my gear up three floors!

I thought the price was good. I have no idea what they cost new. It could probably stand to be painted, and I know I put my stickers on crooked, but I really don't care about either of those. I'm hoping to have it mostly covered with stickers in the next couple years anyway.

If I can get my hands on an official surplus sale list, I might post it just in case someone sees something they want. There will likely be a variety of equipment ranging from small electrical components and hand tools all the way up to heavy equipment like large vertical mills, lathes, and grinders.

It looks like somebody may have been murdered in there, but heck, it wouldn't make a diff. to me either! I got one of those next size up filled with ammunition. I inherited it from Dad (without the ammo, unfortunately) If I had six more of those in my car hole, I'd be happy.

I said I never had much use for one.
