Default any can rotation plans?



Advertise Here

Looked online only plans I could find was turning a small cardboard box into one. If no one else knows of any I will use the cardboard ones for the dimesions of he openings and thats about it. I will be making them out of plywood and some cheap wood paneling to make them look all fancy and such.

As long as your asking, I'll add to your list (I've been looking too).

Does anyone have any self rotating can rack plans that can be cut out using a router template? I'm really looking for something I can reproduce multiple times and just adjust the sizing by shortening or lengthening the spacers between the side panels.

I’m open to most ideas.

I used pvc pipe mounted to the wall. I put the new stuff in the top and pull from the bottom.Just make a small shelf about 1/2" lower than the height of the can at the bottom. Works real good for tuna cans as you can store many due to height. Taller cans may need more tubes for larger amounts.

I too have been looking at making one of these as the Shelf Reliance ones are way too expensive IMO online. My latest plan is to tear up a metal shelf unit that's collecting dust in the garage. Will flip the shelves upside down to prevent them from falling off the sides and will tilt each shelf downward an inch or so on one end. Will then put it against a wall in the basement with a blanket or cardboard covering to keep the light out and load it up on one end and pull from the other. I may need to put a barrier down the middle of each shelf to allow for 2 rows--probably screw in a strip of 1x2. It should work fairly well and I'll post with my results when I get around to doing it this Winter.

We have some in the soup aisle. They automatically rotate the cans to the front. Build a box wide enough to roll a can into. Add a ramp sloping from the back downward to the front with a crosspiece stop at the front. Add the second ramp sloping from the front to the rear with enough space at the rear to allow the can to drop down to the bottom. Load from the top and the oldest can will always be at the bottom. As you use it, the next one will drop down. Ours have copyright - patent pending.

thats a good idea I might use it for the tuna idea. I am trying to make the space I have been using a little more organized and easier to get to. Its a closet so when I buy new I stack on the side of the older stuff but it gets old when the stack is almost nearly gone but we buy new.

Here is the place for one out of cardboard that is top loading but with a little more material It can be made front loading. I will be changing these plans just for that reason and making it out of plywood.
