DIY Doorway Camera Dolly project built with nothing but Home Depot parts and all for the price of you’re average one-day dolly rental! All you need is some basic tools…
The video covers the entire parts list, schematics, and build process.
Leave a comment or tweet me… and also let me know if you come up with better ways to improve this build! Maybe I’ll do a version 2.0 soon with your features!
Shameless plug: If you like this build please spread the word by ReTweet, ReBlog, “Like” it on Vimeo and Youtube!! Follow me on Twitter @bsetter
Here’s the first film I used the dolly on if your interested to see it in action: ROCKHARBOR Easter Week Promo
UPDATE: DOLLY WHEELS
Buy wheels from Harbor Freight instead of Home Depot to save almost $50!
UPDATE: TRACK WHEELS
To add on track wheels to this dolly simply purchase this set of Track wheels Cam On Wheels and mount them to each end of a 4 foot long piece of 6 inch wide channel steel instead of using the threaded rods as seen in the video. I just stopped by a local metal shop and they gave me some free metal scraps that worked perfectly!
To add steering capability you’ll need to attach spindles, a tie rod, and a steering arm of some kind. I do NOT have the full process figured out however Go Kart Galaxy is a good place to source the spindles.
