I've come across what looks like an affordable dolly and track system (concept) from CINERAILS which allows you to use standard 20mm PVC tubes found all over the world....are there any more recommendations for dolly and track for us mere mortals who spend from our own pocket????

You probably know the trick of using a wheelchair, but just in case - "Some people use a wheelchair for dolly shots"

I made one from bits of metal.

All I'll say is that for basic tasks I have not found a reason to replace it.
