Hi, Wayne.

Thank you for the compliments on the rack. They are much appreciated.

Alhough I've never met Lee of Cryo-Parts in person, I've purchased product from him numerous times and correspond with him via email on a semi-frequent basis. He's quite the gentleman and his products are very good quality and a real value price wise. Lee was kind enough to offer to display one of my racks to provide me some exposure.

And I'm glad to hear his exhibit was a real success.

BTW, the model name of the red rack in the photos is the 'What Rack?'. I believe there is another vendor using the name 'Just a Rack' for their product.

The What Rack? is my entry level line and my only all-metal version. This one being red anodized aluminum (except for the ss fittings and pods). Whereas my other models incorporate stainless steel and exotic woods.

I designed this all aluminum version of the What Rack? for purposes exactly like what Lee used it for while still maintaining a very high degree of performance. The 3-shelf rack assembles in about 10 minutes, only weighs about 25 lbs as it can be lifted off the ground with one finger, and one can fit 3 or 4 of these racks inside a small pup-tent duffle bag when disassembled. In comparison, the stainless steel version of the What Rack? weighs about 3 times that of the aluminum version.

I figure when vendors and manufacturers are already lugging hundreds of pounds across the country for a show, who needs another couple hundred pounds worth of racking systems to assemble?

I'm not in production as of yet so I hope nobody thinks I'm shilling. If you did not happen to attend THE Show last January, I displayed my prototypes in the lobby there and below is a url showing those photos of my other models.
