I’ve been trying to complete this adjustable height, locking caster, outfeed table/ assembly bench for a few years now.

I had all the hardware in boxes, including Blum full & half overlay hinges, and Mepla Metal sided drawers. One side (not shown) has doors and shelves, where I keep all of my catalogs, and finishing products.

The business side, shown, will house hand tools, various power tools, and anything else I can think of.

What’s next: A shop air filter above, with lighting, and a pneumatic station which includes air drills on Aimco Spring Balancers (Individual drills with Confirmat Step Drill, Countersink, and Impact Assembly Gun) I also want to put a Dynabrade on a spring balancer, but am saving the coin for the dust collection whip.

Thanks Jim!

I have a friend who has an Onsrud CNC, and he just about begged me to have all the parts cut and edgebanded at his shop, after I asked him about scoring attachments (I won’t buy one). This set-up is for commissioned furniture, which I am an admitted hitman. Knock-offs, Original design, whatever. I shop parts that can be built by others, and do final assembly here.

Your outfeed table looks really nice and very functional. I need one for my shop. You mentioned that it has adjustable height. What do you use to accomplish the height adjustment?

Termite, I had unistrut that a plumber left on my job, so I welded it into a steel frame, and welded nuts in the 4 corners, and also 4 intermediate positions. I had eight casters which instead of having a pin, they had a hole to allow a bolt to be threaded through. I used one jamb nut to lock the bolt in place, and a second jamb nut that locks against the nut on the frame….loosen the jamb nut, turn the caster, retighten the jamb nut .
My saw and outfeed table are level, the garage floor is sloped to the outside.

The outfeed table is probably close to 500 lbs. Unlocking the casters and rolling it is the only answer:)
