Been working on building racks.

I've been wanting to increase the number of animals I'm raising up, so needed to increase the amount of space I have available for it. So gave a go at building a steel rack around the VE Super 70 tubs. I decided it's just too heavy a material so built a 2nd rack around ARS 70 tubs out of aluminum. Pretty happy with the outcome.

I redid the steel rack, replacing the uprights and guide rails with aluminum.
Also built it in 3 sections of 3 levels each for much easier moving up and down stairs.

I would like to do this. Can you share generally how you did it? or do i need a garage full of tools to accomplish it because I dont have that

You can get by without a garage full of tools, but you'll need a way to cut the metal and the plastic, which is helped by a few tools. An angle grinder can get you most of the way (I used one to cut the plastic when I was using really thin stuff, that was not wanting to cooperate). You'll need to find a good supplier for the material, if you rely on what you can get at a box store you'll be paying WAY too much to be worth the effort.
