Post Made Me A New Dolly
So Friday night I made myself a new dolly, that happens to also act as a jib. On Saturday I ran some tests and have begun planning the improvements.

This is what I put together Friday night.

Total cost so far is under $30

Very nice!

I have been thinking about how to make my own dolly. Seeing other people cheap ideas is great, I need to keep mine as cheap as possible.

So far my plan is to use 80/20 and a DC gear motor I happen to have laying around. I originally planed to have a setup very similar to yours but I was going to use PVC pipe since it is cheap.

Thanks again.

Joe

The conduit I used is electrical emt conduit and is about 8 bucks per 10 foot length.
I made a better sled out of some stuff i had lying around. all I had to buy was some bearings, they were 99 cents each.

I will post more about what I am doing. Cheap is key for me as well.
