Off your trolley

Good afternoon all, hope you're all well.

 

Ive just started building another water fed pole pump trolley and control box. 

 

Ive had an electronics background since i was a kid and wanted to pass on a few valuable tips which may be of help to anyone wishing to create thier own kit 

 

Im using the "Handy" brand of folding sack truck like many others have done.

 

If you want to build a trolley the correct size electrical enclosure box for the Handy sack truck is 

300x220x120mm 

 

Top tip

 

If you'd like to achieve a great internal finish with the means of easily mounting your components, pump, battery etc i highly recommend using a back plate within your enclosure 

 

You can buy galvanised back plates buy they can be stupidly expensive 

 

Go to a Tesco Extra superstore and pick up a basic white chopping board for £2 and cut it to size 

 

This will give you a flat clean surface to affix all of your electronics 

 

The white chopping board is actually (PP) polypropylene which is a great item to use and cut easily with a hand saw or jigsaw 

 

The board tesco sells is 4mm and with some cutting you'll also be able to slot your battery into place and had a securing strap 

 

Another tip is to use applicator paper or wide masking tape and stick it onto your box so you can draw out and mark where you wish to mount your electronics etc

 

I'm going to add more build videos to my YouTube channel AW Services so others can use them for reference
