Castors and Cords

I got sick of giving my mobile worktable a shove only for it to stop dead on an extension cord so I made up some guards to push the cords along as the table rolls.

They work real well.
Just thought I'd share this. Not sure if anyone posted something like this before.

I like the rim idea.
I need to do that around the bottom of my hoist base.

SERIOUSLY, I've found plans for building just about any kind of cool tool there is out there but this is my all time favorite.....You really should have kept your mouth shut and patented it I guarantee you'd be a rich man ...In five years you'll see them on everything....

We'll have to check back in five years and see.

Patenting anything these days is pointless. China doesn't care about patents.
They copy anything they see regardless.
