I used my late mom's kitchen cart--an oldie-old-cart made with white metal tubing--as a scope cart. I still use it, though I needed to put new casters on it. It is not light, with an HP1722 scope, '5126 counter and an also oldie-old HP3440 DMM on it. If I only had a Rigol, I could use a CRT swing arm for sure.
I am sure there are tons of people out there who have created their own instrument cart for their engineering lab at home. I think you should go further Martin Rowe and have a video contest where the user demonstrate how they use the instrument cart (required guidelines, no vendors); the top few winners will obtain a T-shirt or a pen from eeTimes (something simple). The readers will be the voters. Something to think about for the future.
Yes, I was editor at T&MW "back then." I wish my memory was good enough to remember all (most?) of the articles we ran. Thankfully, Martin salvaged the T&MW issues and has a complete archive. And probably a better memory...
