Hiwatt 412 Cabinet. Wood skid Question
« on: July 22, 2016, 01:55:46 AM »
Hi

Anyone who knows the dimensions of the wooden skid under a Hiwatt 4x12 cab? Preferable in mm  ;D . Plan to make some repros form my vintage cab.

Thanks!

Agreed. Not only is your back more important, but rollers have been put on cabs since people started moving them. I think they're historically correct on anything.

  I carry a hand truck works just fine  ;D The skid dimensions are as follows, 11"L x 1 1/2" W x 3/4" T. Screw holes are 2 1/2" from the ends.

I do like the folding hand truck we have at work...up to 150 pounds, folds flat. They come in various weight capacities. $30 at Sears

Better stock up now while Sears is still in business.

I know, but it's fun to make fun of Sears. Where America Used to Shop. They lost something like $350 million in the second quarter, but if it hadn't been for selling off a bunch of real estate, they would have lost over $500 million. Fun b/c it's entirely due to stupid management.
