Ladies and Gents--

Finally! Here is the MagDock with a completely built up rig and most of my aks filling the cart.

While this is not the most recent picture of my cart, sled and aks, it gives the viewer a clear idea of why the MagDock setup works, and, I think, works rather well.

Pricing to follow shortly.

Enjoy and fire the questions and criticisms! No limits!

Best,

Brant Fagan, SOC

I put my $.50 in and I still get no picture! What a ripoff! It may work for you, but not for anybody else. Please try again.

Nope!
Not working here, either. Maybe because the Thai 10Baht coin is similar to the Euro coin? B)

But seriously, I get a message that this picture contains errors and therefore cannot be displayed.
try to re-upload again?

Gents--

True enough, I used a Mac with Safari to read, process and upload this posting and attached file.

Anyone who would like a direct email of the image--send me an email at firebrand@fmis.net.

For those attempting to remove coins from their computers, try the age old electronic fix-all:

Just pour coffee on it!

Best,

Brant[attachment=279:attachment]

Brant sent me a picture of his magdock. It took me a little while to find the correct program to open it and save it as a different file.

Just call me Mr. Fixit. :lol:

rolling the rig around on pneumatic wheels is always a good idea -- sometimes I'll let a bit of air out of the tires for a really smooth ride.

Brant, the cart looks great. I've seen alot of guys out here with the cart Back Stage makes which is similar. Erwin has a pretty swank cart.

I wanted a cart with a small footprint that I could fit on the set and actually use as the stand. The one I just finished has a footprint of 26 in X 28 in (no bigger than my stand with wheels, and certainly easier on the rig while rolling around).

I'll attatch a picture or two

enjoy, Ron
