    Pinball dolly made out of scrap 2x4 and lawn mower wheels. Slide it in between the front legs until only the handle is showing. Rolls nicely and pivots on a dime.

    Quoted from mof:

    Nice! I think you've won for "least expensive" dolly of all time. I have to ask, how do you get by with only 2 wheels?

    Balances and moves similar to a wheel barrow, but without the side to side tipping.

    Not my idea, just my design. I made Clay's LED tester and put it into a pen case. Its very easy to hold and use. It can be used to test PIAs. I also use it to test bulb sockets and output headers on Bally/Stern lamp driver boards.

    Cool...
    Can you show us how this is put together?
    -mof

    It's just an LED with a resistor soldered to the flat side and put in a pen case. I made another one with the lead and clip built in.
