Another flip top tool stand

I recently purchased a new Makita LS1016. As I’m working out of a single car garage, every thing has to be mobile. The original planer stand was functional, but big on ugly. I watched a You tube vid from “Guys Garage” and pretty much liked his design. He has included a Sketchup drawing (for down load) on his Y/T site. The original plan shows the planer sitting at 90° from where mine is but as I don’t have the optional in feed tables I built my own and turned the planer to be able to use the side rails for the tables. This kind screwed me for mounting the saw tables on hinges…but oh well. It rotates quite well and is darned solid. I used 6” of 5/8” rod on each end for the pivot points. If anyone is sitting on the fence about building some thing like this…You should probably go ahead. It’s a fun project and damned practical. Thanks for lookin.

This is a really nice flip cart Mark. I really like these 2 tools together like this. The adjustable wings are a really nice addition also.

Very nice, do you use the wings with the planer?

Thank you gents. Rob yes I do I set them at a 5° incline to try and defeat the dreaded snipe, but I think that might be a bit much. I’ll have to flatten that out .

Really nice job. BTW, the YouTube is “Guys Workshop” (maybe he renamed it). I’m hoping to put one of these together, also.
