Home made tracked dolly - currently in production

All,
I wanted to make a place mark here for our track type dolly my partner and I are currently constructing.

Stand by for pictures and "how to" in about a week.
I'm pretty excited about it....and it's soooooo smooth on it's track.

We are currently working through issues of going around curves instead of always being tracked in a straight line.

Otherwise it's a prototype at this point........

Stay tuned!
