My last entry indicated I needed a way to lock the casters in place on my TS workstation cart for rolling around. I picked up a couple of storm ties for framing at the local lumber store and put a bit bend in them to fit the cart.
I made one leg shorter.
I attached the storm tie to the frame, then drilled through it and the caster support at the same time, put in a shallow counter bore, and put a T nut into that.
Thread a bolt into the T nut, and it should be good for rolling around.
In my last entry I said that the top and the extension mated nicely, I figure I should back that statement up.
I also picked up some fender washers and longer bolts for the fence bar to raise it. You see the difference if you compare to the photo in the last blog entry. I guess a by product of raising it a bit (can I call this “raising the bar?”) is that debris will be able to fall out the gaps. The bolts holding the bar, by the way, are M8 cap screws, Grade 8. So they should be tough.
Got to take it easy, the knee is killing me. Rain is supposed to come, so that will slow me down a bit. Overall, I am pretty pleased with how it is going together. I love designing and fabricating. More so if I can do it inexpensively.
