Milk Crates

Where can a guy find some old used milk crates for storage in my portable shak?

Plus I think targets and walmarts and places like that sell crates that are pretyt much the same size and shape, so they should serve your purpose too.

To add to what PJ said, the ones you can buy (for cheap) are just a bit lighter than the milk crates as well.

I looked around recently for the plastic kind to mount to the rear rack of a three wheeler for putting ice fishing gear in and holding 5-gallon buckets. Target & Walmart were a no-go.

Found them at Menards, bought two for under four bucks each, they even had black to match the rack. Worked out sweet! Office supply places also carry them, used as file holders.

I would also reccomend going with a rubbermaid tote. They have a lid you can bungee on, keeps the critters and snow and everything else out of your gear! grin

I get them from a milk company and when they get some nicks and cracks in the crates they will let ya have them. I would call some milk companies.

here's a spin on it- anyone know where the metal flavor crates can be had?

Once again the Milk distributors around my area have them at times but getting the hard plastic ones from them after a crack or nick in them is much easier than getting them to part with the metal ones.

Find a Kemps Milk Man that delivers in your neighborhood and order some goods from him. He will deliver them in some Milk Crates and then, as you go each week, you can keep some of them. I have "hooked up" many of neighbors with them and they work great.(they are the hard plastic ones)

Menards has them for about $4. Target doesn't have them. I bought one for my son's 20lb propane tank.

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
