Thread: Quick Shop Project - Sanding Cart

    Quick Shop Project - Sanding Cart

    I've been meaning to build this for a while and finally got around to it this last weekend. It is a mobile cart for my disc sander and OSS. I love the OSS but it is an awkward height so I made the cart to suit it and put the table level with the table on the Disc sander. It also give me a little more storage in a cramped garage. Seems to work well. Like I said it was a quick project using mostly scraps and some casters from woodcraft I got on sale a while back.

    John, very cool. Looks like you can use the disk sander's table for more support on a big piece while using the OSS or vice versa...Well Done

    Now, that is a really good idea! Nicely done, looks very functional and great looking to boot!

    Looks very nice.

    Regarding the casters... I notice a double-locking caster peeking out of the back of one of the pictures. What I have started doing is putting plain casters on the back of a bench. I only put the double-locking casters on the front. It's cheaper, and I can't reach the back ones anyways. Usually I find that I only lock one wheel and it stays still enough.

    That looks like it should work out great. I love having drawers near a tool for all the stuff that seems to gather for working with them.

    OK John, come clean...I can tell you didn't make the cabinet. The price tag is still in one of the drawers.

    Just kidding of course. That's a sweet setup, and well though out. Plus, I'm envious of bother sanders. Great job.

    Well John.

    I do not know what I like most, either the sanders or the cart. Both things appeal a lot to me, so don't make me choose. I think that they go very well together.

    Another idea to put in my "to do/to buy" list.

    Great job!
    Best regards,

    Nicely done John!

    I too like the way your setup has one table helping the other.

    Very nice job John. Will have to consider building one myself when I get a new shop, no room right now.
