    Hey Everyone!

    I'm back from the dead. Although I've been working on puppetry projects since 2005, my online presence has been nil.

    My question is about those funky rolling chairs with the tilted backs and casters. Anyone know where I could find more info on them. Maybe find a picture or plans to build one? I'm not even sure what theyre called.

    Welcome back from the dead hehe :)

    They are typically caller trollies or dollies.
    Very similar in look to a car mechanics trolly.. The type he dissapears beneath your car on.

    Try googling mechanics trolly and you will see some pics :)

    I vaguely remember Swazzle puppets (or maybe it was another group?) posting something on their blog that looked like the thing in the drawing below.

    Kinda looks like one of those wooden cars you make in science class.
