Here's a simple upgrade that should help in my shop organisation and productivity department.
I built a simple box-beam stand with folding legs for my crappy mitre saw a few years ago, thinking it would be somewhat portable for trim jobs in the house, etc, but I think I only moved it a couple of times. Too heavy and awkward and I'd rather walk a dozen trips out to the shop to cut a piece of trim than get a hernia moving that thing myself.
Well, the benchtop drill press has been tying up a valuable Workmate for two or three years (the things you get used to!) and the new mortiser didn't have a home. I didn't want to lift that puppy up off the floor too many times either.
To cut to the chase, I did some modifications to the chop saw station one evening last week and here are the results. I was a little worried about the legs, so I beefed them up with a couple of Lee Valley 1 ton glides.
It's sure not portable any more!
