Cheap DIY Track System

Cheap DIY Track SystemTrack and dolly systems can add a lot of production value to your work but for a cost.  If you only have a casual need for that type of equipment and for whatever reason don’t want to rent it, here are my tips on some ways you can save money without cutting too many corners or building one entirely yourself.


Purchase a dolly but save yourself from buying the track.  Find out what the track diameter is and match it with PVC so the dolly wheels glide along.  You can purchase inserts and couple sections together.


This is a very rudimentary setup but if it works for you without much fuss (or further fine tuning such as leveling capabilities) you have saved yourself some money (and setup time).
