Ammo Cabinet

Recommended Posts

I've got a Brattonsound ammo cabinet that measures approx 250mm x 250mm x 380mm high.

 

I want to put a shelf in it instead of having everything piled up. Obviously i don't want to drill the sides.

 

Any ideas how to put a shelf in and what to make it of?

A small metal box on it's side, with the top (open hole of the box) facing the open section of the cabinet, measuring the same size as half the cabinet. That'll sit snugly, while also providing a platform/shelf style section.

So the double lines are the box on it's side, sat at the bottom of the cabinet.

 

Does that make sense?

Yes it does. Cheers. I think finding a box of those dimensions might be a bit of a task though. :thumbs:

Some sort of ply shelf system insert? Wouldn't be that hard to knock up...

 

Can you send detailed drawings please? :laugh:

:laugh: Walshie mate, I'd just pay someone to do it, lol.

 

I've got some ply in the garage and a hammer and a screwdriver. How hard can it be? :laugh:

Just drill the sides.

X4 3mm holes won't cause any structural problems for the cabinet.

 

I had to side mount one of mine and drill new holes. I contacted bratton sound to see if it would affect the warranty and was told it wouldn't.

 

Another option is those magnets they use outside sainsburys to pin up banners. They are bloody strong and 4 would easily take the weight of a shelf.

Sorted :thumbs: Half and hour and a bit of swearing and I have a lovely shelf with no holes.

 

Doesn't look very strong though. :laugh:

You didn't really build a shelf did you? You just found a metal box, didn't you? Haha

Yes, I found a metal box exactly 1mm smaller than the cabinet and the perfect height that luckily fitted in past the hinges and lock. Stroke of luck eh? :D

Lets have a visual then? I have a mental image of a bit of rough sawn fencing timber wedged in on the piss and 'fixed' with no nails. LOL
