    Finally finished it...

    Well I tried to get this done for the past few months but seemed to never get the time. It sure adds lots of extra needed storage for blades and so many other things that I can think of .

    Thanks Chris, Here are a couple of more pics with the dust cute made of some plastic board that I had hanging around. Could have made it a bit steeper but once i get the back cover over the motor opening it will increase the suction and clear out the dust better.

    Nice job, Drew. I also was thinking that was a lot of cast iron top for a benchtop saw, then I saw the label in the last pic. Well done.

    Looking good, Drew. how big are the casters? They look small in the photo. Are they hard to lock? Did you work from plans?

    The top has two extensions to the left of the blade that gives it a bigger top and the wheels are rated for the load even though they look small. I had not planned to put it in the tools shop indi any time soon. It is heavy enough that I have to intentionally move it around and it doesn't move on it's own or when i am pushing stock through it. I am planning to replace them with better locking wheels when House of fools gets more in. They are in the process of changing all their stock over as the new owner is re vamping all the stock there. So they are out of lots of stock and not sure just what is being re-stocked or not.

    Now that's gotta make things easier. Very nicely done.

    Excellent way to better utilize available space. Very well done. It looks more like it should be in your living room instead of the shop .

    Thanks to all of you for giving me some ideas with your posts. I was told once that no matter what you do, take the time to do the best you can. I still have some tweeking to do and figure what to put in the drawers??

    Geez all the problems to figure out.
