Easy & Practical DIY Tool Cart (customized Adam Savage design)

Easy & Practical DIY Tool Cart (customized Adam Savage design)

In this video I show how I made my mobile tool cart/mini work bench that I’ve been using for all my projects over the past few months. This was inspired by an original build by Adam Savage of Mythbusters and now the YouTube channel, Tested. His version of this tool cart can be seen in a video here: https://youtu.be/TWQAYfGxsPE

    What the f%#k sort of hammer is that

    I watched Adam’s video too. Knew it before you said it from looking at it. Awesome man. Now you can make a custom awesome guitar case like Adam did.

    I used to be a big advocate for nailing in my childhood because it was easier for me (I wasn’t particularly strong). Now though I’m a huge fan of screws because taking things apart is easy and if you take good care of the stuff you build, you can even reuse some screws.

    Hi. mate, even to make a support as I propose to you:
    In the form of a multi-storey rotating disk you had to make in the center of the support where to put the tools.

    so you can access the tools from the same position by rotating the disc.
    the disc must be built so the tools can be visible from any position.

    in this project you can also use a magnet to hold the tools in place

    disc or circle, my English is dangerous, be careful. πŸ™‚ sorry

    I really like this.



  6. Man in the Park on February 22, 2023 at 5:37 am

    I need that. Then, at 6:53, β€œI need those.”



  7. Ivan on February 22, 2023 at 5:37 am

    Thank you sir! I had been meaning to make something like this. It’s like you read my mind. πŸ˜€



  8. Harsh Jain on February 22, 2023 at 5:37 am

    This is good work



  9. fruitfly77 on February 22, 2023 at 5:39 am

    So f***ing cool.



  10. NSEasternShoreChemist on February 22, 2023 at 5:45 am

    Great design! Only comment: The wheels are kind of small. Would you consider putting lawn tractor wheels on it, so you can use this cart outdoors without it getting stuck in soft ground?



  11. H A Z M A T on February 22, 2023 at 5:45 am

    There is a lot of unused real estate on the lowest level. If used it would also ballast the cart.

    Oh Really me too i hope it was awesome



  13. Billy Wampler on February 22, 2023 at 5:46 am

    As an upgrade I would suggest using carriage bolts, nuts, and washers. No offense but the nails seem to make it a wee bit wobbly



  14. Ursula Leach on February 22, 2023 at 5:46 am

    On a thing like that I would never use nails because over time nails come out. I’d use strong screws



  15. Dudok22 on February 22, 2023 at 5:48 am

    Pat and Mat gone right



  16. Clem McGuinness on February 22, 2023 at 5:49 am

    Thank you, I’ll make one at least of these bad boys



  17. DONMOTITAS on February 22, 2023 at 5:49 am

    High recently so one of your videos from the gasifier it is quite and old one but I didn’t know that was even possible I have a question hopefully you will be able to read this message can you compress the gas for storage purpose like regular gas butane love you videos hopefully you will answer



  18. Joel Cusick on February 22, 2023 at 5:50 am

    Ira would be proud!



  19. Robert Orr on February 22, 2023 at 5:50 am

    How incredibly useful to broaden my thoughts about how to tailor this simple design to my. Particular needs. Thank You!



  20. Sam Vargas on February 22, 2023 at 5:50 am

    Very amateur builder here. How do you cut the angles on the front two angled 2 by 4s, the ones that connect the top to the base?



  21. Π­Π΄ΡƒΠ°Ρ€Π΄ Π›ΡƒΡ‚ΠΊΠΎΠ² on February 22, 2023 at 5:54 am

    This toolcart can be modernized by adding a roting celynder inside the cart which has holes for stuff.



  22. Victory First on February 22, 2023 at 5:55 am

    Try McMaster-Carr for the roller wheel in the pipe cutter. They are amazing.



  23. Joshua Cox on February 22, 2023 at 5:55 am

    Like the cart. Need some gussets /cross brace. If have limited space, use small wire cable and turnbuckles. Cheap way out is tie wire twisted with a tool to tighten. Making an X brace. (if no one has said it yet. Also try decent contractors plumbing supply to get replacement cutter wheel for pipe cutter. Thanks! I enjoy your show!



  24. Adrian Beaumont on February 22, 2023 at 5:56 am

    Genius. Tool trolley ordered for Β£13 from amazon. Thanks for the tip!



  25. Markus Altendorff on February 22, 2023 at 5:58 am

    Adding one diagonal piece of wood inside the frame between top left and bottom right would firm up this build substantially, wouldn’t it? It’s what I used to stabilize my fly screen door …

    What’s your name? Brother.



  27. gfs videos on February 22, 2023 at 6:01 am

    Tool cart, because: "Drawers are where things go to die"
    Good job, BTW.



  28. Commercial Forest on February 22, 2023 at 6:02 am

    πŸ‘ Thanks for posting! I’m building mine based on your design. I really like the height, tool visibility & light footprint. I think this will get a lot of use



  29. rowgler1 on February 22, 2023 at 6:03 am

    Recycled baby carriages make great tool carts. They are extremely durable, have brakes and are easy to get once they are out grown. I have three in my shop, one for paint, one for masonry and a general hauler. They also fit through a doorway easily to move tools to and from the truck. Some styles even have bicycle wheels.



  30. Sajid Shaik on February 22, 2023 at 6:06 am

    Can you make crude oil fractional distillation setup and separate different kinds of fuel from crude oil?



  31. oddjobbob on February 22, 2023 at 6:06 am

    I am glad you mentioned the hammer. I noticed and that, β€œWhaaatt.” It was almost painful watching you use that. I would have thought screws would be called for, but millions of homes are built with nails just like those every year.



  32. testticklehead on February 22, 2023 at 6:08 am

    Nice job and I actually like your design better than Adam’s. Pretty awesome how you mounted the drill press to the cart. Thank you!



  33. Deepblu dude on February 22, 2023 at 6:08 am

    I buillt something similar to this however I only have a tiny 6×20 flat smooth floor in my whole shop area. So I used all terrain wagon tires, I guess its my destiny to always being laying down in rocks, gravel, sand uneven terrain, stickers, ants, chiggers, scorpions and copperheads haha



  34. killertoast on February 22, 2023 at 6:09 am

    This is really simple and can store a lot of tools. I like it. Perhaps it can also be expanded to carry "sheets" with tools on that can be pulled out and powertools.



  35. Count_Zer0 on February 22, 2023 at 6:10 am

    Brilliant idea. I feel like the center of gravity is scary high for the wheelbase… Be careful with that drill



  36. The elevator explorer on February 22, 2023 at 6:11 am

    Cool



  37. Troy Nall on February 22, 2023 at 6:11 am

  38. Dan Tower on February 22, 2023 at 6:12 am

    Feel inspired now. My first attempt at a tool stand is a rolling wall with peg board on both sides. Works only ok. Something like this will work much better.



  39. ezza88ster on February 22, 2023 at 6:13 am

    Inspiring! You have given me a key idea ahead of my reorganisation of my workshop – as I often prefer to work in the open air and sun.

  42. Marwan Muna on February 22, 2023 at 6:17 am

    How big is that drill press, 8” or 10”…?? Thanks!



  43. trolleybike on February 22, 2023 at 6:17 am

    My guy looks like healthy ted cruz



  44. Dimes On His Eyes on February 22, 2023 at 6:18 am

    Not to disuade anyone from building this but a janitors cart also works really well. It can be modified to make an amazing portable storage and work space.



  45. Michael on February 22, 2023 at 6:18 am

    Awesome. All I need is an actual garage to use it in!



  46. Mr ai maker on February 22, 2023 at 6:20 am

    Nice.
    What’s your name?



  47. w w on February 22, 2023 at 6:22 am

    You can always tell people who worked with metals and who haven’t I’m a metal fabricator by trade there is no way I would build this out of wood you could do so much more with aluminum and it would be a lot stronger a lot more versatile a lot lighter better in so many ways….. I guess that’s what we get for letting your Master stay in charged and only allowing us to play with wood if we all knew how versatile and easy it was to work with aluminum and metals more people might have grown a set and Maybe would have been demanding it years ago that’s how your Master keeps our minds trapped that’s how they keep us enslaved…… that’s a nice wooden tool cart though



  48. Tinkersmith on February 22, 2023 at 6:22 am

    Seems a bit too small to bang on 😏🀣



  49. FrΓ€ulein Hohenzollern on February 22, 2023 at 6:23 am

    Im convinced you didnt get the bigger hammer in the basement because you think its haunted & scared of ghosts 😊



  50. Christie Mcdonald on February 22, 2023 at 6:29 am

    I believe Menards for the cutter wheels.
    How tippy is the cart?
    I notice the high center of gravity, and if the wheels are angled inward on both sides.(like moving a player’s paino)
