Description

Improved Classic Metal and Wood Plate Rack

  • This plate holder will last as long as your plates, maybe longer!
  • Cast aluminum alloy ends - stronger than cast iron
  • Wide stance for stability
  • Adjustable for plates sized from 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" to 11" x 14"
  • Holds 25 glass or aluminum plates with deep 60° V-Grooves for stability
  • Black walnut runners with dual steel threaded inserts per side
  • Wood coated with walnut oil then three coats of Spar poly urethane for water resistance
  • Metal ends coated with etching primer and a tough black wrinkle finish
  • Steel alloy fasteners

This plate rack was born out of a desire to a use the leftover metal from the cut aluminum plates we sell.  The left over metal is melted and alloyed with silicon to increase its strength, then cast into the plate rack ends.  One of the weaknesses of antique cast iron plate racks was that the screws used to hold the wooden runners would strip out causing the rack to get wobbly and eventually fall apart.  This rack uses dual steel threaded inserts in the wood runners so that it will remain sturdy for life, and allow for disassembly and reassembly may times. The aluminum alloy is less brittle that cast iron so it will not develop cracks over time.

This rack in its standard configuration will hold 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" plates up to 11" X 14" plates.  It can also be configured using the lower holes to hold plates as small as 2-1/4" x 2-1/4"

    Drying Rack X

    Compact size yet solidly built. It’s by far the best drying rack I’ve owned. I’m planning on ordering another once they’re back in stock.

    Standard Drying Rack

    this is the best small rack available. Well-crafted, v-shaped grooves hold all plate sizes without contact to plate surface. I have three, and use them all the time.
