Heavy Duty Roll Rack

Does anyone have a source for a rack similar to the ones made for 30 inch rolls, but will handle 54 inch? Thinking of just welding one up, but why reinvent the wheel if there's already something out there.

There's at least big ones like these with even longer tubes to hold up to 64". Not sure who would sell it to you tho.
And it's nice. We have 3 similar to that and it holds very well.

wouldn't you have to hold them vertically?
leverage doesn't just work to your advantage
some of those rolls are 150 lbs.
wouldn't the base have to be counter weighted like my bucket truck, not to tip over?

it's kind of like the people who take a file cabinet and load only the top drawer and then pull it all the way out.

It is by the bottom structure and all the other rolls that hold the weight back. You only take out couple maximum at the time.
This is way more user friendly than the ones that are on a wall or even vertical. It's so easy to just slide one out and load it.

Got one of these:

It's a giant pita, every time I pull a roll off I have to set it down and unthread the conduit. Same with putting rolls back on. Otherwise it's great, never had a roll fall off it...

Yeah, that style never did it for me. Looks pretty, but I never imagined it easy to work with.
