    Alas.. No 4th. The clamping method could be adopted to work with a palletised version. Or no pallet at all. There is probably enough room on the table to set up the 4 stages as above and just eat the...

    All of our parts are stored in pallets. We use the walkie stacker to hold the pallet at a comfortable height while picking. Works great until some genius decides to pick exclusively from one side...

    Are you wondering are there some kind of bureaucratic restrictions preventing him from working outside the EU?

    He just wants to work in the EU. Free movement of goods and all that. No paperwork.
