You may remember I've just inherited a bunch of sweet tools from an old friend. But every silver lining has a cloud, and here's mine: the shop's too small. So I looked around and tried to figure out what to do. Biggest things first, right? Well, the biggest thing in my shop is my table saw / router table combo cabinet. It's huge: 4 x 8 feet. It's heavy as heck. Doesn't roll well any more. I built it so I'd have a full 48" to the right of the blade. But since I got my festool saw years ago, I never cut plywood on the table saw anymore. Time to downsize!
Got the saw off, and the router table, and everything:
Those are 6" casters, my friends.
No wonder it doesn't roll well anymore:
It's a torsion box. At least I can still tell where the baffles are:
Making sure the Festool won't try to cut concrete:
Laying out the cuts:
New platform: 24 1/2 by 48 1/2
Hurrah! It's still a torsion box!
