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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
