I made a trolley out of some old tube steel lying around in the shed & an old trolley jack. Bought some wheels on ebay. Took a while to do, but i can move the machines around easily. I never got round to finishing it off & painting, but it works fine. Reckon you could do the same with a scissor jack

Here is MY result of a few afternoons last week of building a second trolley!

I found the trolley jack under the house that my housemate left there when she moved out so i put it to use (hence its ratty appearance compared to the silver painted metal of the trolley) :D
I had initially built it with using a scissor jack in mind but changed to the hydraulic jack at the last minute when i wasn't happy with how it worked.

Most of the metal used was either given to me or i already had it laying around, the only things i had to buy were the castors, a few bolts and a can of hammered metal spray paint!
