To the couple of guys who came up to me yesterday in the pits wanting to know where i found my mini chrome wire rack shelf that held my two ichargers and fans and power supply, I sorry to say I can't find them anywhere anymore. I bought mine at Home Depot years ago, when I saw it on the shelf I initially thought it was a miniature display unit of bigger wire shelving racks, but was actually just a mini chrome unit for sale. It was made by "Prospace", and it was an adjustable three shelf unit of 8"D x 18"W x 18"H was about $25.00. I cut the legs down and used only one shelf to build my current rack. Up to a year ago or so Amazon still had those three shelf units at about $25 as well, but can't find them there either anymore.

After some poking around, however, I did find that it is possible to construct and buy the unit via the website www.theshelvingstore.com. They let you design your own unit, and most importantly, carry the hard to find 8"D x 18"W (external dimensions) shelf. The bad news is that a single shelf unit, with 6" chrome legs, prices out at $33 plus $15 shipping. They also let you build multi shelf units, multiple leg heights available, etc. They actually have an accessory option of a cup holder that attaches to the leg posts that holds a 20 oz. soda bottle that might be really useful for holding your traction compound bottle and not having it accidentally tip over, and only $3.50 for that option.
search amazon for mini wire shelf. $20 for a 3 shelf unit 7.5" deep shelf by 18" long.

Thanks Rob and Mike for finding the shelf on Amazon - I guess I didn't use the "mini" in my search terms - I had tried small, the dimensions, etc.
