I would also like to see a close up of your wheel mounting solution. I will be mounting my wheels with the strut in the same configuration. I'm not sure about using right angle brackets, and I can't make out exactly what you did there.

I used 90deg brakets they make one that has 2 holes then one on the 90 bend those work great and won't rotate like a singel hole one each side. Ya the Crain is great getting a retractable corded reel to hook to it. Makes lifting nice. The supply house I use can get me any strut fitting. The crane uses strut trolleys a setup like I have could make a sweet BIAB system to lift and roll away.

Where is everyone buying the strut? None of my local home improvement stores (HD, Lowes, Sutherlands) seem to carry it. I found some online, but it is a lot higher than what gifty74 quoted in post #6.

I think it's mostly used by plumbers, mechanical conrtactors and electricians. Try a local contractor or supply house.

Are you sure about that? I've seen it in several HDs as well as Menard's. Some places might carry it in the plumbing section instead of the electrical department.

If your local HD doesn't carry it, I'm sure you could special-order it from the service desk, since it's not that unusual of an item.

In my area I have to buy the strut material at HD, Lowes, or Menards. The struts are in the electrical dept. and are 18.96 at my retail locations. Commerical plumbing and electrical stores that sell to the public are where the struts are cheaper I believe.

Go to the electrical section at HD. It is not with the other metal (angle iron, slotted, etc) in fasteners. It should be right next to the conduit.
