Camera Gantry Take 2. Todd writes -

As I said in the last video I wasn’t to happy with how smooth or straight the cart was with the 6 little wheels and the one rail. I found that local garage repair companies recycle several old garage doors daily included wheels, brackets and tracks. I contacted one and they didn’t even want to charge me to pickup some scrap track. So this build just got a whole lot cheaper and with two tracks for the camera cart it solved my smoothness issue as well as my camera swing. Check out the video and a few photos below. But first you may want to check out my first whack at this camera gantry where I show more of the welding, cutting and setup.
