So I spent a brief period catching up on workshops last night and an idea came to me…
I’ve never seen a table saw workstation / bench with flip top tool stand integrated into it…
So new thought…
Keep the extended rails on the BT, but lose the legs, and build a cabinet.
This cabinet is to house the entire table saw, wide table kit, plus where the current workbench is, replace that with still more cabinet, so that it is double sided with a continuous workspace.
The side with the table saw will house the saw, and router table, plus storage for all my routers, bits, blades, table saw, and routing accessories.
The opposite sde will be laid out with flip top sections, to have on one end where the table saw is, the bench top jointer, the side where the router is, the bench top planer, and in the middle the oscillating sander.
Integrate dust collection for the lower end of the router table and table saw, and provide storage for spare blades, sanding belts and sleeves.
I have access to both MIG and Wire feed welders, and a brother in law that is willing to teach me to weld, so I am SERIOUSLY considering a 1.5” angle iron mobile base / frame for it. I have several fixed, and swivel casters that are ready to go.
That would leave the storage for drills, and drilling accessories. Yay fun!
