I thought I would share my DIY gun safe to show what a little luck, a keen eye and taking advantage of an opportunity can do for a heads up individual...of course my wife has a different word for my scrounging and "southern engineering" projects but we don't use that kind of language on this site. Here's the story, over the last 3 years I have had to move our manufacturing from Rock Hill to a site in China that our German lords and Master's own, for the most part it went well and while I hated to lay off the 106 people here at the site I was really not given an option, but enough about that During this move we sent a lot of equipment to China and I sold off a lot to US buyers. A few weeks ago I got rid of the last of manufacturing equipment and was left with a couple of very heavy duty storage lockers, the shelves of these lockers are rated for 150 pounds and the things weigh 300 pounds, not easily moved. The CFO that I report to told me to do what I wanted with them so my Technician and I each got one, his task was to move them, one to his place and one to my basement, he arranged for some help and they cursed steadily carrying it into the basement but somehow got it in. I have a very bad back so all I could do was stand there and supervise (Thank God). As you will see it makes a nice safe. Very heavy gauge steel. Reinforced door hinges (Welded) and while I have not attached it to the floor or wall that is an option. Lock is hardened steel and while it can be cut I doubt it can be done easily and it cannot be hammered off. Knife Shelf And no I am not particularly worried about showing some of my weapons on the internet. Notice I have a dehumidifier that can be recharged indefinitely per the package and I think one that size will suffice since the temperature basement is pretty steady, if it indicates a recharge is necessary within a month I might add another one . I am pretty pleased with my low cost gun safe, so keep your eyes open for opportunities and ignore your wife as often as you can get away with it. Thoughts or suggestions would be lovely.
